Impossible to cut the face - sounds good.

Shaves Easy, quick and clean - great!

Pays for it self in a fortnight - perhaps a bit of hyperbole?

Every undertaker and embalmer should have one - wait, what‽

It makes sense though, in that corpses are (and were) usually shaved to make them more presentable, and if the safety razor could do it easier, faster, cheaper and with less chance of cuts and the danger of infection... sounds like a great idea to me, even if I was taken aback when I first spotted it.

Does this mean that a lot or vintage Gem razor at some time may have shaved a corpse or several corpses !

Not to shock you, but.. if you own and use a vintage razor, chances are good that it have shaved someone who is now dead! Tongue

I think it is funny the ad is being published by the National Casket Co....as if they are not selling enough caskets....they now want to shave the dead!

That's the very reason I got one!

When I die, I'm going to recommend this razor to my undertaker.  If I'm going to burn in hell forever, I don't want to be scruffy looking.

But what does this mean:  "avoids ... that annoying tonsorial form of blackmail -- "tips."  ?  I suppose it's a dig at commercial barbers, who would have to be tipped?  Does the blackmail reference suggest that men tipped their barbers in advance as insurance against an "accidental" nick or cut?  "Nice face you got there.  Be a shame if anything happened to it."

Nothing wrong with this add, if a razor is used to shave live people it can be used to shave dead ones too. Back then people used to be more bold and straight forward, instead now a days we live in a world where not just women but men too have become like a butterflies and get offended over every stupid little comment like a joke for example ( Am 'I the only one who saw the attempted humor in the add?)  .... While the youth who is about to become even worse than its own parents sniffs condoms and has tide pods as snacks in between meals...

Why do I have a feeling someone will get offended and report my comment to an admin?

Final conclusion: I only see an honest no nuts and bolts fair advertisement, no sugar coating and little bit of humor too

Gotta believe this ad ran in a morticians' trade periodical, not a general circulation magazine. At least, I hope so. Doubt

I wonder what the table of contents in Undertaker's Monthly would look like.

Actually, no.  No, I don't wonder.

Forget that thought.
