As I was trawling the net, I stumbled over a device that should pay for itself after a single use:

It trims, it thins, it cuts, it shaves legs... probably chops onions too. A device that promises a lot usually delivers just a little, but the thing seems simple enough: a comb with a DE-blade attached.

I can see a device like this cutting and trimming hair - especially if your preferred hairstyle is short all over. I can see a device like this thinning and shaping hair, provided you got a steady hand. I cannot see a device like this giving your legs a very close shave though.

For a 98 US cents in the mid '40s (about 14 US dollars today, give or take), I can see it as a useful tool to extend the time between going to the barber or hairdresser. I can't see it being a complete replacement though... even less considering the fact that it seems to be made from plastic:

We had something similar to that when I wad a kid. My folks were always looking to stretch a dime. The device definitely worked to help keep you looking neat between haircuts. IF you understood how to use it properly. Don’t ask...

Which is about 10$ more than it was new, adjusting for inflation...
