Vintage Razor Restoration – Gillette Slim Adjustable & Superspeed Black Tip

Another good find, I recently acquired two vintage safety razors from a local antique shop. One was a Gillette Slim Adjustable and the other was a Gillette Superspeed Black Tip.

As you can see from the pictures below, they definitely need a good clean. Luckily both razors still had their plating in tact and just needed a good scrub.

So as usual I started with several hot water soaks, brushed them with a toothbrush to get all the dirt out of the nook and crannies and then finished off with some good metal polish. I personally use Mass Metal Polish, but if you can't get hold of it there are other good alternatives.
