Gillette Date Codes
Gillette Date Codes "How old is this razor? Sometimes patent dates are a help, but they give you the front end of the date scale, and not always too exactly. Some razor makers put serial numbers on their razors, but we don't always have the key to how the serial numbers fit to dates of manufacture. Gillette is one manufacturer for whom we have information on serial numbers and later date of manufacture codes that we can link to time. Other makers included serial or manufacturing codes, but we do not have the keys. AutoStrop and Rolls are two well known manufacturers who serial numbered their razors.
The Rare Schick Injector Safety Razor Type F - Art Deco
Any day on eBay you can see dozens of them for sale, and relatively few bids out, at least for the common ones. After all, they all look just the same, don't they? But look again, there's more to this razor than meets the eye.
The case is a distinct art deco black plastic box with gorgeous details and durability. It opens into a display holder and includes space for a used blade container. Included was a new brass injector with key and blade loading slider. The Magazine Repeating Razor co. Colonel became inspired by repeating rifles used in WWI.
