    It's kind of cool! I think it's powered by a string pulled through it.
    Humm. I'm no internet wizard, so I can't convert to an animated gif.

    I located one for sale. Considering how cheap blades are this is an expensive historical novelty.

    Don't know when it was made, but for soldiers in the field it could come in handy. Just a guess.

    It is pretty cool. I suspect if it works at all, it works best with carbon blades.

    Is that a Damaskeen? (spelling?) or a Lather Catcher? Razors are like cars. If I own that model, I know it. I don't know old style SE's very much. Learning Schicks & Gillettes!

    It is a very nice example of a cased 1901 gem junior SE razor with papers. Very rare and very cool.

    No doubt. That the razor survived in great condition is amazing. Unbelievable that the case & original paperwork are so nice!

    It is quite rare indeed to find them in this shape. It must have been in a trunk or suitcase for decades or there is just no way. I have been looking for a really nice one like this for about a year now. This is one of two, and this one is easily the nicer of the pair
