This razor is very rare as less than ten are known to exist. The handle, twist-to-open knob and retainer cap are made out of aluminum and it was designed as a razor to test markets and not meant for mass market sales. Gillette was completely in the dark about what consumers would want in an adjustable razor. Was it too heavy? Not heavy enough? Was the adjustment dial too close to the TTO knob? How about the shave? Too close or not close enough? These razors were produced in the hundreds and given to focus groups to see what worked. The head is nickel plated brass and there is no date code stamped into the razor. This razor weighs 72 grams.
