CUTTER COULD BE USED AS A POCKET SHAVER IN A PINCH, NO WORSE THAN A STRAIGHT RAZOR WITH A REPLACABLE 
BLADE.  OBVIOUSLY THERE AREN'T MANY OF THESE LEFT, SO DON'T LET THIS ONE GET AWAY.
    
  ALSO THERE IS A HOLE IN THE CASE WHICH ALLOWS THE BLADE TO BE USED AS A CIGAR CUTTER.
THE HOLDER CONTAINS A NOS VALET BLADE WHICH I PUT IN IT.  ALSO INCLUDED IS THE LOOSE BLADE IN THE 
PICTURES, IT IS THE BLADE THAT WAS IN IT WHEN I GOT IT.  THE OPEN LENGTH IS ABOUT 4 1/4".  THESE 
ITEMS WERE MADE AFTER 1931 when Henry J. Gaisman (Auto Stop) succeeds tainted management after 
financial scandals.  Stock falls below $5.00 King Camp Gillette resigns as President.  1932 Death
