Rhodium plated super speed, circa late 1940s. A gift for my dad's 70th. he was born in '49. So I'll be telling him that it is a 1949 SuperSpeed. The TTO works beautifully. I have complemented this with some Bombora soap and splash.​
Nice work! It does look like a ‘49 to me !!!

I should make it clear here mate that as the owner of arguably the largest collection of vintage Gillettes in Australia - I can unequivocally confirm that this is a 1949 build razor. Will give you a certificate in writing to confirm if required. 😜

They have done a fantastic job. It is incredibly tempting to give it a test run before his birthday in December, just to check that it's a good shaver of course...
The rhodium plating just doesn't show up well on the photo, but it really is a beautiful mirror finish. I was recently given a '4th quarter, '63 Slim. I think that I will get this re-plated in Rhodium too.

In fact, I think that it was indeed made on the 2nd December, 1949, the very day my old man took his first breath.

One Supply Razor w/ 3 level aggression plates and 3 cartridges of blades. @Ferret619 , I'm assuming this is the V1, I forgot to ask.
Thank you @Ferret619 , looking forward to giving this a go.
I had seen the Supply a few times on various forums and decided I did not need one of these, but since @bald as convinced me I could not live without a Schick Injector G Type, which then led to a Schick adjustable purchase and inevitably led to the Supply.
The Schick Injectors give a very impressive shave. What I like about the Supply is it can be dismantled and cleaned whereas the Schick Injectors have fixed heads. If the Supply lives up to its reputation it should be a much better long term proposition (if I don't lose the screw @bald as :ROFLMAO:).

Nice timing; I used mine this morning.

fyi, I think that's a v2 (like mine).

Fortunately, you can buy replacement screws from Supply.
