1918 Gillette U.S.Army Khaki Razor Set
ALL MY ITEMS ARE SOLD FOR BEST OFFER!
RICHARDS RAZORS; MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!

You are looking at a 1918 Gillette U.S. Army Khaki Razor Set. Included are the razor, blade
holder and Canvas Case. The razor is in overall very good condition. The finish is clean but there is
a small crack in handle. The canvas case is in excellent condition. There are no tears or stains,
really nice. The snap closure is in tact and functions. SERIEL NUMBER F902407.

Yes it was made for WWI. It was not sold to the US government. But that doesn't
mean it wasn't in the war. Parents and friends could have bought them as gifts for soldiers or
used them themselves. Most of the sets bought by the government had J serial numbers and both the
case and the razor were marked Property U.S. Army. I have a Khaki Set identical to this and it
shaves wonderful. My everday Gillette is an Old Style just a few years newer than that one.
Best shave on the planet.

There were at least two Gillette Khaki sets made/sold to the U.S. Government from 1918-1920.
There was a Gillette Military set that was a khaki-covered hard case that snapped. It was basically
a Traveller set (razor, two blade holders, a soap tube, and a brush tube) covered in khaki.

The Gillette Service Sets (in the metal cases) were sold through retailers (at least through
Sears, Roebuck) and were also from around 1918. There are at least three versions of this for the
U.S. and one Canadian version. There's also one lithographed tin for the U.S.

This is a civil set. It says: "Made in USA" on the bottom blade plate. This canvas set says
"PROPERTY OF THE US ARMY.
The sets for soldiers says: "Property US Army" on the bottom blade plate.

Terms of Sale:
When I describe an object as 'VINTAGE' or 'ANTIQUE' they will have the typical wear and tear you
would expect with an older piece. Light scratches, scuffing & crazing and such like would be
expected as opposed to a NEW condition. If an item is in MINT condition I will say so. If an item
has any major issues - dents, deep marks, stains or heavy scratches etc. I will bring these to your
attention in my description. All sales final.
