What about this !?
Has 2 reels with a very long and scary blade.
Any of you seen this before?
Lol it looks like a bandsaw.. but for the face!
Would you dare shaving with it?
If I recall correctly, Schick put out a razor that was similar - spin a knob, advance the blade band.

Very cool looking!
Yep, so did Gillette, the Techmatic.
I hated the Techmatic. I don't like the looks of this one either.
That thing scares the stuffin out of me.
Looks like a potato peeler.
The condition suggests you arent the only one afraid to ever try it out......
I have an unopened Techmatic and two replacement bands, but I've not heard good things about the razor so it'll stay unopened.
This razor, however, is just too cool looking.
It is definitely worth more unopened, and probably more useful that way.
My thoughts exactly.
I like the Schick version actually. Well the one shave I did for MAYhem. I would use it!
I remember when my father used a Gillette techmatic for a brief while. He hated it and made it known. I believe my father went back to his DE after a few weeks of using the techmatic.
It might not be one of the better shave systems out there, but I would like to give one a try at some point.
Clearly there is a tension device that hasn't been tightened or can't be. I wonder what the replacement "blade" assembly looks like? If the blade was down firmly like it should be It might not be a bad razor at all.
