Razor of the week

This weeks razor is a Black Handled Super Speed (O4, 1969 4th quarter). I didn’t pay more than $10 for it at an antique store. I brought it home and cleaned it up and used it. The plastic on the handle is in good shape. A good find.

I have an issue with the handle. The smooth part near the head is where I typically hold the razor. I do this for maneuverability. I find this smooth metal slippery. It doesn’t slip, but I always feel that it’s about to.

It’s a very mild razor and I would put it at the same level as the a flare tip super speed or even the 1940’s super speed. It’s a great entry level DE Razor in my opinion.
