    Sweet Rocket! I have one but it comes in a white case with clear top. Opens like a Gillette TV Special case. These little gems shave like a charm and built like a tank. Love that smooth Rocket tto action too. ;-) Enjoy!

    We're reviving a 3 year old thread here but that was/is a very nice razor.

    I don't know much about the British and Canadian products but that does look like a 1950's razor in a 1949 style case to me.

    There again, probably 95% of all the razors in cases on auction sites that I ever see are mismatched, especially Super Speeds as they came in lots of different cases. I saw an auction recently for a 30's Tech in a 1958 Flare Tip TV case! It was a BIN so I contacted the seller, told him about the mismatch and offered to buy just the case as I had a very nice '58 TV Special with no "home" for it. He accepted.
