1886 Kampfe Brothers Star Safety Razor - Classified Ad


1886 Kampfe Brothers Star Safety Razor
RICHARDS RAZORS;  MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!

  An antique Kampfe Brothers Star Safety Razor with one blade and blade holder.
The third section of the handle, used for honing and stropping the blade is 
missing, and the blade needs sharpening before any use.  Invented by the 
Kampfe Brothers.

  This beautiful Star has 1 original blade that appears unused.  Modern SE 
blades will work in this razor.  All I did was clean it with warm soapy water.
I did not use any kind of polish on it.  The material on the snap on the 
case has some vintage ware that can be seen in the pictures but it still 
snaps and keeps the box closed.  The razor box is in very good vintage 
condition inside and out.

  1875 -The Kampfe brothers introduce the Star Razor, the first safety razor 
made in the United States. Its revolutionary design wins national and 
international awards for design and craftsmanship.

  King Camp Gillette is best known, incorrectly, as the inventor of the safety 
razor. The first safety razor was in fact invented in 1880's by the Kampfe 
Brothers. This Star razors produced by the Kampfe Brothers around 1903.
As can be seen from markings on the razor itself and it's box, the razor had
already won awards and patents long before Gillette.

  The head reads:  Star Safety Razor
