Discussion in 'Safety Razors' started by MTgrayling, Dec 1, 2008.
The photos at the start of this thread are now missing. It says something about photobucket is full. Is this just me or is this the same for everyone ? Sorry for being vague but i'm not particularly computer savvy. Many thanks.
I was thinking it was due to inactivity of the member not being here since 2014. I don't know?
Are you talking about the Photobucket Hotlink Issue?
There may be fixes for it depending on which browser you are using. Just do a google search.
Thank you for the treasure of information on the Gillette rockets, you have spent a lot of time and effort, I noticed you have not visited the site for some time and thanks were ever you are heaven or earth!
What a thread! Was offered one of these Rockets in trade. Should be here in a few days!
i think the letter designates the market they are destined for.both f my # 20 flare tip rockets are stamped k
i have the same arist jr in mint shape with instructions.great razor.
user grade # 58. 1956 with the loop in the case and 694093 pat number
upon researching the canadian rockets
so far i can t find any british ad that calls these razors a rocket, just aristocrat jrs ,british boxed versions don t have the rocket name.all the red clear rocket cases are made in canada..
the only rocket found so far..
which is an hd..
could the name "rocket "have originated in canada with british aristocrat jr razors and canadian cases? the only non crat jr models sold in england were just called "1 piece razor"
i don t think crat jrs or british crats were sold in canada, just u.s.aristocrats.
Do you ever wonder how good the blade dispensers were from keeping a blade from getting damaged, I have this old steel one glued to my Gillette only wooden razor rack.
Gillette needed something to compete against the Schick injector and they came up with this dispenser which was a genius idea to build around a none injector system they lacked.
I have never used a dispenser like this shown because they are rare to find.
very cool.,i have a couple that came with cased razors.they have blades in them .i have never tried the blades due to age..if this is true about these dispensers the blades may still be usable.will have to try one. cheers, ..
Good picture and post Ron.
