This lady has a lot of miles on her, but still functions perfectly...not interested in having it look pretty because she won't be! She's sterile, vintage and cheap, perfect for the chap who asks himself if vintage razors are good shavers but don't want to fork out too many ronts to find out!
The Gillette Flare tip is a hugely popular razor that was manufactured from the 1950's up to 1960. It is a perfect razor if you want to get your hands on a bit of history without breaking the bank as it is a razor that will work for first timers and experienced shavers alike. It will also suit guys with sensitive skin as this is a mild razor. It's fairly small frame gives it ease of handling when used against the grain for a closer shave. It stands 83 mm high and weighs 56 grams.
The razor has a TTO (twist to open) function, enabled by twisting the 'Flare tip' anti-clockwise to open the doors, and clockwise to close the doors once the blade is loaded.
Ugly duckling this one, but she's still got 50 years left on the clock!
