This is a very nice Vintage Gillette Slim, Adjustable Safety Razor, that shows no prior usage. It is in superb defect and blemish free condition. This is a razor that will last a lifetime while providing great shaves. It carries the date code J-2, which indicates it was made in the second quarter of 1964. The Gillette Slim Adjustable has the same mechanism as the Gillette Fat Boy, but the handle is 1/8" longer and just slightly, not quite as "fat" around. This is preferred by many to it's close relative Fat Boy. Just a smidgeon lighter, it weighs just 2.5 ounces compared to the Fat Boys 2.75 ounces. This razor is in like new aesthetic and mechanical working condition. The butterfly doors open and close perfectly. The TTO (Twist to Open) feature functions flawlessly, the numbers adjuster turns easily to each setting and the numbers 1 - 9. These numbers still retain all the original black factory paint, which attests to little or no previous usage. Included with this razor are 3 packages of 5 blades each pkg. of brand new Wilkirson double edge, S.S. blades.
NOTE: Back in the day these vintage safety razors were made extremely well and to last. They provide a very economical alternative shaving method compared to the cost of present day safety razors and the shave quality doesn't show any inferiority. The blades are readily available as can be attested by the several companies that today, still make just the blades that are being manufactured by several companies, and sold in abundance on the internet and in various stores. This razor is in super fine condition and will make a great lifetime shaving companion.
