    The patent actually called for adapters to enable the use of the razor with proprietary blades like the Segal.

    A very good year; it was the year my father was born.

    But let us not forget most of the nation was still in the middle of the great depression, and for the common man, times weren't so great. Both of my grandfathers had eight or nine children and time were very tough.

    Average hourly wage in 1935 was about .50¢. Still a "Heckuva deal."

    Wow, a days wages! No wonder it was called an Aristocrat; only the rich could afford it.

    It's still like that today. If someone is making $15 an hour it'll take over 2 days wages to buy a Rex or a charcoal razor.
