Hi,
     What are some of the more common models of single-edge razors from the 1930's?
Thank you

Gem was building this wonderful razor known as the micro matic. I believe this is the right time for the valet auto strop also. In the mid 30's schick started building injector razors. Before that they had repeating razors. (I actually have a shick model A. The loading magazine does not work so have to hand load blades)

In addition, the venerable 1912 was re-introduced by American Safety Razor in 1930 as the "Improved Ever-Ready" safety razor. The British made 1912's also date from the 1930's.

Most of the French made wedge blade razors (commonly called the "French Hoes") were produced in the 1930's. The Rolls razor was popular in the 1930's and Wilkinson Empire sets were produced throughout the decade.

Interesting... 

On the Wikipedia entry for "safety razor", I noticed it says Schick developed and placed on the market the Injector model in the 1920's.

1930s models L to R:

Schick B, C, E, Micromatic, 1912

Without question the Micromatic, a new design and sold throughout the decade, would be the most iconic of the period. The 1912 and Autostrop were decades old designs, the Schick Repeating Razors not very common, the E common but released c.1935.

The early schicks were the repeating razors. They had a magazine in the handle to hold blades. The head swiveled and a blade waa injected. The two peice srarted in the mid 30s.

Thanks for the info Bob. The 1912 was made for a long time.
