It has been a while, but we are starting to get some of your favorite vintage Gillettes back on our site replated and looking better than ever. Have a look and enjoy the photos. We will be adding more as time allows.

Rhodium is nice. I understand the traditionalist wanting the razor refurbed to original specs, but as a user I find rhodium a cut above and love the look and durability of it on vintage Gillettes.

I will be offering more in nickel as well (we have one Super Speed in nickel now).
I like to offer both since it was the original plating with most of the vintage Gillette razors. Also, I like the apperiance, nickel has a warm look to it.

I know some people have a problem with nickel jewelry such as earrings. Any problems with nickel plating using razors?

I have heard of the concern but I do not recall someone stating that using a nickel plated razor actually caused a reaction. Rhodium may be a better choice for them.
