1930 Segal bright gold safety razor, this is a great safety razor that reads Segal, in Very Good Condition. The razor is clean and in Very Good Mechanical Condition. It is in Excellent Working Order with a half twist of the twist to open knob to close tightly on the blade. This great razor was made by Segal Safety Razor Corp., 270 Broadway, New York, NY. Circa 1930. Super nice condition. The plating on the razor is in Excellent Condition… The Top Was in Very Bad Condition so I Stripped It and Now It Has a Beautiful Shiny Silver Top Blade Plate.
The razor has excellent balance and is hefty at 2.5 oz. The shave was excellent as the razor's ballance makes it easy to control. This vintage kit comes with one unopened NOS packet of Segalrazor blades. The box is in Good Condition, with the bit of vintage Ware. Please see the pictures. The Segal is an incredible design (not as practical as Gillette's, but still incredible). I also find the Segal handles very beautiful.
SEGAL Unitary Safety Razor, invented by Hyman R. Segal, of New York, NY. Mr. Segal applied for a US Patent on January 25, 1929, Serial No. 335,032. His safety razor US Patent was issued on July 28, 1931. The difference in this razor is the way the cap is released to replace the double-edge blade; by turning the end of the handle in a clockwise turn, the cap is raised on a shaft so that the blade could be changed. By turning the end in a counter clockwise turn, the cap was lowered onto the comb-type guard.
There are several patent numbers pressed into the base of the razor head; the blades also had a patent number. At the time this item was manufactured--the early 1930's--Segal and Gillette were suing and countersuing each other for patent violations as each company strove to capture the safety razor market. You know now which one prevailed.
