1940 1950 Star Safety Razor with Case and Blades
RICHARDS RAZORS;  MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!

1940s Star Razor Division of the American safety razor Corp. Gillette type, 
in a slide open plastic case. Made during and after World War II the case is 
similar to contemporaneous Gem and Synflex military razors, this is the RW version.
The razor and case are in "VERY GOOD" vintage condition. The outside of the 
top blade plate has a bit of plate loss, but nothing too severe. Also included
with this wonderful collectible are five NOS envelopes of Clix DE razor blades.
As always please be sure to look at the pictures as they are a true 
representation of this great razor kit.
  
  These are nice razors, somewhat mild shavers. The Star DE is an under
appreciated razor for sure! Slightly more aggressive than a Gillette Tech 
and very well mannered, shaves more like a Gillette Super Speed than a Tech. 
The deep knurling on the handle makes it easy to hang on to. Given its condition, 
it is certainly worth the asking price! I thought that it was slightly more 
aggresive than the Tech, which was a plus. I beleive that these were made in basically the 
second, quarter of the twentieth century ('25-'50 ish).

  The handle is very grippy. All in all, a very nice little razor. This is 
definitely a very mild shaver. I don't think you could cut yourself with 
this thing even if you tried. I found I had to do a full third pass, 
instead of my usual 2 pass + clean up. That said it was a fine shaver. They 
were made in the late 40s to early 60s by American Safety Razor, who owns 
the Star brand. They are a bit more aggressive than a tech. Nice hefty 
handles. The Star Division of American safety razor Corp. Brooklyn New York 
trademark first used in 1944 the double edge razor, Gillette type.
