Hello everyone, I have a Gillette adjustable with black handle and black base plate. I haven't tried(shaved) it yet. How are these razors? Why some has black base plate while some of them are normal? I been trying to upload pictures but no luck.
Any information would be appreciated.
Many Thanks

The Black Beauty is a nice razor. Mines a LH (long handle), with the Q1 date (which is a Gillette oddity).
Very smooth shave. I think you will enjoy yours.
Very easy to just go on 'Auto shave' in the morning. No fuss, no drama.
The Black Beauty's are often overlooked by folks who want the flashier Gillettes (Fatboys, Slims, Aristocrats, etc), but they are certainly worth having in the shaving den.
I have seen one with the metal work gold plated (original Gillette option) and it looked stunning.

I used it twice so far and I think it is smoother than Gillette slim adjustable.
