IN A WORLD WITHOUT CASTINGS Would Traditional Shaves Be as Close?


While many men prefer to use modern electric shavers or cartridge razors, some like to use more tradi- tional tools. One is the double-edge safety razor, which was invented by King Camp Gillette in 1901 and rose to prominence during World War I when they were included in Ameri- can troops’ shaving sets.


Today, double-edge safety razors are returning to popularity because of the relative inexpensiveness of blades and the quality of the shave.


Many of the products on today’s market include cast components, and the most common are the heads of the razors. T ey are frequently diecast in zinc alloys with chrome-plated surfaces, allowing for a durable razor and close shave
