Can you ay era
500 shaves from every dozen blades f
OW many satisfying shaves do you
get irom one razor blade before it
begins to pull and scrape?
On the first day, when the blade is
fresh, your- shave is smooth and cool.
But very soon your beard begins to dull
the edge. Soon the pulling and scraping
become unbearable. You throw the old
blade away slip a new blade in your
razor and begin the same round again.
The real reason that blades
, grow dull
Under a microscope, a razor edge is
seen to consist of hundreds of tiny teeth.
When these teeth are in alignment, the
blade is sharp. But the very first shave
with a new blade bends these teeth out
of alignment, and the blade begins to lose
its' edge.
With most safety razors, there is no
way .to. smooth the delicate teeth t back
into alignment. The original smooth, fine
edge of the blade grows rougher with
every shave.
Today there is one safety razor that"
gives you a fresh, keen edge for every
shave. With the AutoStrop Razor you
will get 500 cool, clean shaves from every
dozen blades an average of 42 satisfying
shaves from each blade.
Like having a new blade for
every shave
Built right into the frame of the
AutoStrop Razor is a remarkably simple
self-stropping device which keeps the
blade keen-edged as when new day after

into perfect alignment, and gives you a
freshly-sharpened blade in a few seconds
- without taking the razor apart or
removing the blade.
