I'm looking for information and valuation of this Dubelege Stropper and am sure someone in the Nook has the expertise to help me.  Any assistance would be appreciated.

I was just curious about it. A gentleman at church gave it to me when I was selling razor handles.  I am moving and was thinking about putting it for sale in Swap & Shop, but I don't really know enough about it.

its basically a double edge razor stropper, so its suppose to sharpen the edges on a de blade so you can use it again,
you unscrew the nut/screw on the land side the cover comes off and pop in the blade put the cover back on screw the nut/screw back on tight,
then simply push and hold it down whilst winding it around, hope that makes sense mate

Kanner's "Doubeledge" Stropper... Invented by Samuel Kanner, covered by two patents (US 1,282,849 (filed 1915, granted 1918) and US 1,271,715 (filed 1917, granted 1917)). Some indications that it could also sharpen single edge blades, although nothing mentioned in the patent - could also be a seperate variation that was set up for those blades.

Given that the construction of this one seems closer to the second patent, I assume it was made no earlier than 1917. Given the embossed text of "Pat Appl'd for", I assume this was manufactured no later than 1918. Later ones had the patent date of July 9th 1918 embossed on the top strap.

I'd be willing to give it away to an appreciative recipient who is willing to pay the actual shipping cost for it.  Anyone interested?
