The Valet auto strop safety razor is a development of the cutthroat razor incorporating the safety
of an internal blade with the leather strap being inserted into the razor housing to sharpen the blade.
It illustrates the focus on facial hygiene at a time when beards were still common & the need to
keep pace with changing times by developing products that are easy to use & are cost effective
(the blade being sharpened by thesmall leather strap) meaning you don't have to constantly replace
the blade. The shaver was developed by Autostrop, Dover, Delaware, U.S.A. Patent No 184808.

Terms of Sale:
When I describe an object as 'VINTAGE' or 'ANTIQUE' they will have the typical wear and tear you
would expect with an older piece. Light scratches, scuffing & crazing and such like would be
expected as opposed to a NEW condition. If an item is in MINT condition I will say so. If an item
has any major issues - dents, deep marks, stains or heavy scratches etc. I will bring these to your
attention in my description. All sales final.
