Well the mail just arrived and the package I have been waiting on is now in hand. My wife asked me last week what other vintage razors that I was looking to add to my collection....well I named off a quite a few and she told me that she had seen one on a site and it was in rhodium....Well she did not show me a pic. of it at that time, so I was really interested to see it....Well I have to say she did very well....It is a Gillette 1956 Red Tip and it looks stunning!! I called her at work during her lunch break and told her that she had done very well and that I would take her out for a nice dinner tomorrow evening....Biggrin

Wow - that looks amazing Wallace.

My wife has bought me a few brushes over the years but that is just awesome.

Enjoy your meal tomorrow night mate - she's earned it. Smile

Man that is beautiful. I have one replated in nickel that is nice but that rhodium finish just glows! What a great performer too. Awesome razor! Congrats!

Well I had my first shave with the red tip and man it is aggressive!! But all and all was not lost at least the dinner went very well and I still was able to add a nice razor to my collection.

Great shaver, I have two Reds and two Blues, all 1956 too. Birth year. I wish I could get them replated in that rhodium. Yours looks absolutely beautiful.
