The Gillette Black Beauty is basically the Gillette slim with a longer, black handle, the head profile is also slightly flatter than the Fatboy, later versions had a plastic tray at the bottom, but for obvious reasons we prefer the metal ones as with this razor. This is certainly one of the tallest adjustable razors out there, with a lot of stick to hang on to!
The razor has 9 settings that clicks into position as you twist the dail below the head. The razor has a butterfly mechanism that opened when the knob at the bottom end of the razor is turned. It stands 110 mm high and weighs just under 70 grams.
This razor is in fairly good condition with great working action on the adjustment dail and the dail opening and closing the door. As with many adjustables, make sure the tension on the doors is released before adjusting blade gap, you will feel the difference in the way the dail turns when under tension.
