Think that weird and wonderful razors needing special blades were a thing of the early days of safety razors? Would this advertisement for a King Oscillator from 1946 change your mind?

From The Minneapolis Star Tribune, June 16, 1946.

I found this advertisement as I was writing a different and longer post about the King Oscillator and the Rotary King razors… so consider this a teaser for next week.

If it came out today I wouldn’t buy one because of the great variety of razors on the market.  But if I were shaving 74 years ago when it was brought out I’d likely give it a try.

You got to add another ten years at least to the date it came out... the earliest patents are from around 1920 Smile
