    1946-1978 Stahly Live-Blade Razor All Original
    RICHARDS RAZORS; MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!


    This great vintage 1946-1978 Stahly Live-Blade Razor is in excellent
    condition, all parts are clean and working. This item comes with the
    Original plastic case in the Original box of purchase both of which are in
    excellent condition with an absolute minimum of wear. The razor itself is
    clean with no pitting or plate loss. On the bottom of the razor there is
    small X which cannot be seen in the pictures. As always please be sure to
    look at the pictures as they are part of the description.

    The Stahly Live-Blade razor was among the first DE razors to vibrate the
    head, reducing the blade's tendency to catch on dry spots, and skin
    irregularities. Several Stahly razor models were marketed from 1946 until
    the 1970s. The idea (then as now) was to reduce irritation and provide a
    smoother shave. The bottom of the razor contained a watch-type torsion spring
    that the user wound up immediately prior to shaving. The spring powered a
    small eccentric crankshaft that caused the head to vibrate. It would vibrate
    for about three minutes between windings. At about 3000 oscillations
    ("sliding side-strokes") per minute (a 1954 advertisement claims 6,000
    vibrations per minute, though it may be that instead of counting a single
    oscillation, advertising copywriters counted each movement of the head).

    The razor takes standard (modern) DE blades. The internal mechanical
    components create an odd balance to the razor; the head feels very light
    compared to the base, which is much heavier. Therefore, the razor is
    balanced essentially opposite to a standard DE razor. Because most of the
    weight is in the palm, the user may elect to grip the razor differently.

    Early models of the razor were available in a presentation case. A clear
    plastic upright box case was also available by 1947.
    A wood-type upright case is shown in early (1946) advertisements. Original
    models were chrome, gold plate, or black with gold plated accents. Later(?)
    models were also available in a brown bullet-shaped leatherette presentation
    case. Late models were also made from aluminum. There were women's models
    that are pink and chrome (the pink is a special surface painted on the
    handle). Manufacturer: Stahly, Inc.

    Originally at 406 Columbia Street, South Bend, Indiana; by 1954, a division
    of Geuder, Paeschke & Frey Co. of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The company ceased
    operations in 1978.[1]
