Unlike many other brands that have released commemorative products this year, Gillette razors did actually play a roll in the historic mission. During the Apollo 11 mission to the Moon, Command Module Pilot Mike Collins used a Gillette Techmatic safety razor with Old Spice brushless shaving cream. Both the razor and shaving cream were donated to the National Air Space Museum by Collins in 1985.
The new razor is part of Gillette’s Razor Maker™ collection which releases limited edition 3D-printed razor handle designs. The Razor Maker™ Apollo features a “moonscape handle design” with a “one small step” inspired boot print on one side and the NASA insignia on the other. On the business end of the razor, Gillette has fitted their Fusion5 ProGlide, which features 5 anti-friction blades and a precision trimmer on the back.
