I have a Redtip looks like new,but has a larger blade gap than my other Reds.
About 20-30% larger, Shaves VERY close,has a pronounced blade feel ,like a slightly smoother R41,
the gap is even on both sides ,so it is not a deformation.
Was there a lot of variation on the RedTip gap over the years??

There might be a difference in British made Red tips but I don,t think the USA made ones have any difference...try checking out the Mr. Razor site....posts pictures and a bit of print info.

Blade gap as follows

US RT: 0.66mm

UK RT: 0.81mm

Ive long believed the UK Red Tip to be an altogether different beast from its US counterpart.

Really efficient and superrrr smooth....I reckon this razor could give a wolfman wr2 1.05
a real run for its money. RT UK is one of my grails for sure. I did they to sell it here in a momentary lapse
of sanity. Glad it didn't work out that way.

There is also the Red Tip Rocket, and the Red Tip Superspeed.

A photo would help identify what you have there. Smile

I am aware of the difference between U.S and British RedTips.In fact I have a D4 Redtip exactly as in the pic
among my razors,and have noted the handle differences.This variation (D-4 )also has the plus signs under the baseplate.
That is not an issue.Just as there were Mechanical differences in the U.S. version handles ie: B4 vs D4,
Might there have been Some Gap differences also.
