Valerie lives in Birmingham, Alabama and writes about fun things, like recipes that really work! The Gillette adjustable double-edge safety razors of the mid-twentieth century—including the Fatboy, the Slim Adjustable, and the Black Beauties—have become popular both for shaving and collecting. These models have an adjuster beneath the head, that allows you to raise and lower the razor blade to control the closeness of the shave. These classics make lovely gifts for a man who enjoys wet shaving. Their style and quality bring back the memory of fathers and grandfathers lathering up! You can find vintage razors in many places—your family’s attic, flea markets, yard sales, or thrift stores. In many cases, the razors were put away dirty and wet, and left to corrode and even rust. How can you decide if it is worth buying? We’ll be looking at some old, grimy adjustable razors, and seeing how to evaluate their condition.

Sometimes patent dates are a help, but they give you the front end of the date scale, and not always too exactly. Some razor makers put serial numbers on their razors, but we don’t always have the key to how the serial numbers fit to dates of manufacture.

Other makers included serial or manufacturing codes, but we do not have the keys.
