    1962 brit rocket

    knob same size as handle .II stamped on baseplate..
    my earlier diamond plate rocket has a slightly larger twist knob diameter.
    this #54a razor appears identical to the "parat" razor but without the "II" on the blade plate

    ealier version with thicker twist knob.

    Dunno if my choice violates the rules here or not, because my choice is neither elegant nor rare. It's not sought-after or a general source of pride for its owner. But I think the finest Gillette razor, by far, is this beat up old Super Speed! Thanks to the Shave Nook, I think I've pinned it as a 1950. This $1 razor was responsible for getting me into this Wet Shaving World, and even though I've got a few more razors now, it's still the finest Gillette EVER, in my humble opinion!

    There aren't any qualifying "rules" really, as "Gillette's Finest" is subjective. I may hate a Gillette Super Speed and you may think it's the greatest razor in the world.
    :eatdrink047:

    BTW, nice Super Speed!
