This is a good example of an early Short Comb "New" style Gillette safety razor. The reissue patent of 17567 was granted on January 14, 1930, so that's about as close as we can date it. This razor is preferred by many over the Old Type. The short tines in the comb give a somewhat unique shave. The "wide" or "normal" bar handle on this model is very popular, giving good control and balance.

In spite of its age, it will use standard double edge razor blades. As you can see in the photos, the razor is in quite good condition overall. Overall, the gold plating is in very good shape. The head does show some brassing. The bright lights and high magnification make it look worse than it is. The teeth are all present and straight. Looks great in your hand. The handle is perfect. 


Comparison photos showing the long comb vs. short comb, and normal vs. slim bar handles are provided. Only, the short comb head, and normal bar handle are included. 


This variation on the New is a neat razor to collect. The short comb head makes it interesting to use. Nice piece of shaving history.
