Gillette Flare Tip Z 1 - 1954 vintage restored and replated safety razor
This restored Gillette Flare Tip is a razor in excellent replated condition! This razor has a Z 1 date code which means it was made in the first quarter of 1954.
This razor was cleaned and nickel-plated. See the pictures for the best description.
The razor is not new. It is a 60 years old razor so please feel free to contact me before bidding for any questions or additional information about the razor. My goal is 100% customer satisfaction so I will try to answer in much details as possible or send additional pictures.
