NEW SAFETY RAZOR HAS OSCILLATING BLADE (Mar, 1933)

NEW SAFETY RAZOR HAS OSCILLATING BLADE

Especially designed for those with tender skins and tough beards, a new safety razor employs an oscillating blade to cut the hairs. While the razor is drawn across the face, a pair of friction rollers revolve and cause the whole blade to move sideward with a reciprocating motion, as indicated by arrows in the photograph at left. As a result, this miniature mowing machine is declared to give an unusually close shave with a minimum of chafing and discomfort. The one piece razor may be operated and cleaned with one hand.

    Hey, wasn’t this another “new” innovation by Gilette recently? (like the 5-blade razor shown here a couple weeks ago)

    Granted, the new ones are battery-powered rather than friction-powered, but the general principle is the same.

    I think having a razor blade moving side to side against your skin sounds lethal, no?
