1930 SEGAL Double Edge Safety Razor w NOS Blades
RICHARDS RAZORS;  MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!

  This great 1930 SEGAL Double Edge Safety Razor shows great 
shine and functions properly as well. 1930 double edge razor made
by Senegal. In VERY GOOD+ CONDITION, NOS blades included, the 
blades still have the original cellophane wrapper.

  When you unscrew the handle, the lid lifts up and pivots to the 
side so you can slip a blade over. The Segal is an incredible 
design (not as practical as King's, but still incredible).  I 
also find the Segal handles very beautiful.

HISTORY:
SEGAL UNITARY SAFETY RAZOR
  Segal Safety Razor Corp;  270 Broadway, New York, NY.  Trademark was first used 7 April 1930.  
Trademark filed 1 October 1931, double edge, one piece.

Segal safety razor blades, Trademark first used 18 March 1932.  Trademark filed 5 April 1932, 
for blade slot design.


The corporation introduced a single unit safety razor in late 1930, a low priced product designed 
to use only Segal double-edged blades.  The following year Segal placed on the market the 
Unimatic Segal Razor, a one-piece razor which accepted a double-edged blade.  The firm entered 
a contract with United Cigar Stores in June 1931.  The agreement was for a long term of years 
and stated that the cigar interest would feature and distribute Segal razors and blades.

In October 1931 the Segal Lock and Hardware Company sued Gillette (brand), asking $2,000,000 in 
a loss of blade contract.  The suit claimed a violation of the Clayton Antitrust Act.  Another 
suit, decided in Boston, Massachusetts, resulted in an agreement between Segal and Gillette. 
  The former agreed to discontinue the manufacture of razor blades which infringed the Gillette 
patent. Segal continued to manufacture its own razors and blades which fit their own razors. 
However they were forced to discontinue making blades which also fit razor handles made by 
Gillette.

  The Segal Lock and Hardware Company of Manhattan, New York was a leading manufacturer of
hardware merchandise and razor blades in the 1920s and 1930s. First established in Connecticut 
and Manhattan, the firm relocated to Brooklyn, New York in the mid 1920s. The Segal Safety Razor 
Corporation was a subsidiary of the Segal Lock and Hardware Company. The business was at first 
known as the Burglar-Proof Lock Company.
