    Default Longer handle super speed?

    Hi,
    I recently bought a 1957 super speed which i like however i find the handle a little short.
    Are there any super speeds which have a longer handle? I would like one about 3-4cms longer than my 1957 ss.
    thanks,
    moto,

    look for a Lady Gillette (11cm), Slim Twist (10,8cm) or Knack from the 60s and 70s.

    Agreed. The Lady Gillette has the same head as the Super Speeds of that period and are a good deal longer.

    For rugged manliness, opt for the pink Lady Gillette.

    just tell 'em the pink is actually dried blood from the badgers you practiced on...

    Hi! You also might find with practice you get to like the standard Super Speed.........I wouldn't like a longer handle. Its all what you get used to.

    You have to be pretty secure in your masculinity to shave with a pink razor, I'd say.

    Some of us can even wear fuzzy slippers while using one and get away with it.
