Schick 1926-1927 Type A Magazine Repeating Razor


Schick 1926-1927 Type A Magazine Repeating Razor
ALL MY ITEMS ARE SOLD FOR BEST OFFER!


  SCHICK Type A (1926-1927): Cylindrical body with folding head.
Here's a 1926 Schick Magazine Repeating Razor.  The razor head is made of brass and folds down to
fit under a top cap.  The cylinder shaped container is made of aluminum and shows almost no wear
as does the razor head.  Included is a box which contains a container of Schick single edge razor
blades.  I would have to say that this safety razor is in almost excellent vintage condition.


   The repeating razor was the forerunner of the injector that we now know. It held the blades in 
the handle and had an interesting reloading mechanism. To change the blade, one would turn the 
shaving head (so it aligned with the handle) and cycle the base of the handle (a small "knob") 
back and forth. 


  This razor would look great in a collection but can also be used as a daily shaver, you're not
going to find many of these "TRAVELING SALESMAN RAZORS" so you better snap this one up soon before
it's gone.

Terms of Sale:
When I describe an object as 'VINTAGE' or 'ANTIQUE' they will have the typical wear and tear you 
would expect with an older piece. Light scratches, scuffing & crazing and such like would be 
expected as opposed to a NEW condition. If an item is in MINT condition I will say so. If an item 
has any major issues - dents, deep marks, stains or heavy scratches etc. I will bring these to your
attention in my description.  All sales final.

 

Schick 1926-1927 Type A Magazine Repeating Razor


Manufacturer: Schick


Dates in Production: 1926-1927




Type: Magazine Repeating Razor


Description: Metal tube-like handle with a vented cap


Notes of Interest: The very first razor made by The Magazine Repeating Razor Co.




  Single-edge razors use a (disposable) razor blade with only one shaving surface, unlike 
double-edged blades that have two cutting surfaces. Razors of this type were predominantly 
manufactured by the American_Safety_Razor_Company and by the Schick/Eversharp (currently owned by 
Energizer) brand. Though shavers usually draw at least a modest distinction between injectors and 
SE razors, both use (non-interchangeable) single-edged disposable razor blades. Though cartridge 
blades are technically single-edged, their use in a cartridge -- often together with more than 
one blade -- generally eliminates them from the category of "single-edge" razors.




Company Info:


Schick is a US brand established in 1925 by Army Lieutenant Colonel Jacob Schick, when he formed 
the Magazine Repeating Razor company.[1] More than a blade shaver, he wanted to create an 
electric/dry shaver. Once the Magazine Repeating Razor Co. was doing well, he sold his assets in 
the company to pursue the manufacture of what became the Schick Dry Shaver.[2] In the past, the 
companies that bore his name or purchased his assets produced DE and injector blades and razors, 
including the modestly popular Krona. Schick, now owned by Energizer, currently offers cartridge 
and disposable razors.


Schick began producing twin-blade injector blades not long after Gillette introduced the Trac II, 
and Gillette also began producing twin-blade injector blades. Schick's "Personal Touch" cartridge 
razor, aimed at women, debuted in the 1970s. Schick's Slim Twin, introduced in 1988,[3], the 
Tracer in 1991,[4], the Protector in 1997[Popular Mechanics, August 1998, "Face Off"], which 
contains safety wires perpendicular to the blades, the Quattro in 2003[5], and the 3- and 5-bladed 
Hydro in 2010. Schick also manufactured Trac II and Atra-compatible cartridges (the "Super II"), 
just as ASRCO continues to do.
