  1930 Segal Automatic Safety Razor w Blades. Segal, bright chrome safety razor, although the outside of the razor door is not quite as shiny as the rest of the razor, anyway this is a great safety razor, in Excellent Mechanical Condition. The razor is clean and in Good Cosmetic Condition.  It is in excellent working order. Absolutely shave ready!

 These great collectible razor's were made by Segal Safety Razor Corp., 270 Broadway, New York, NY. Circa 1930's. The razor has excellent ballance and is light at 2.5 oz. The shave is excellent as the razor's ballance makes it easy to control.  This great collectible razor comes with 4 unopened Segal razor blades, all never opened.

  The Segal has an incredible design (not as practical as Gillette's, but still incredible). I also find the Segal handles very, very beautiful. SEGAL  Automatic Safety Razor. Invented by Hyman R. Segal, of New York, NY, was the SEGAL Automatic Safety Razor. 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.

  If you're interested, you can read a little bit more about the Segal/ Gillette patent conflict in the Time magazine archives:
