Archives International Auctions - part XXXII

Lot 275 Gillette Safety Razor Company
less than 100 shares certificate, specimen
printed by ABN
Top sportsmen David Beckham, Tiger Woods, Roger Federer and Thierry Henry 
used to promote Gillette razors and shaving products. But it was more than 
100 years ago that King C. Gillette introduced his safety razor equiped with 
disposable blades of stamped steel. Several models of razors are depicted on Gillette 
certificates. This certificate shows the "1920 Big Fellow" model. 
"Gillette" has become part of our collective memory, even in non trivial domains. 
In laser research, a "Gillette" is an informal measurement used as a rough estimate 
of a laser's penetrative power : "four-Gillette laser", for example, can burn through 
four Gillette safety razor blades.
Start price $200
