Today for my birthday my wife presented me with some Razors she picked up for me to try and clean up / feed my new found RAD. *lol* how cool is that?

I know one is a Schick krona and another I think is a 50's super speed? and the small one i think might be a travel tech from the 60's? then there was this cool open comb single edge auto strop of some sort I have no idea but it looks neat. I think she gave like 3-5 bucks a piece for them.

I'm not new to wet shaving but I'm very new to vintage razors and any information and details you gentlemen could provide me with about these would be greatly appreciated.

I guess I'm going to need to find a rack of sorts now Smile

Valet Auto Strop Razor

The Super Speed can be dated accordingly, Prior to 1950 the blade bed read "PAT. NOS. ON PACKAGE", and in 1950 this transitioned to "PAT. NOS. ON PKG.........you have a PAT. NOS. ON PKG so its a 1950's style.

You tech has a N-2 code, so its a 1968 Tech.

The Knack (1966-1975)
1967 M
1968 N
1965 K
1966 L Black Handle Super Speed
