1946-1978 Stahly Live-Blade Razor All Original … More Pictures Be Sure to See the Pictures I've Posted on YouTube for Any Flaws This great vintage 1946-1978 Stahly Live-Blade Razor is in Excellent Condition, all parts are clean and working. The razor itself is clean with No Pitting or Plate Loss. The Stahly Live-Blade razor was among the first DE razors to vibrate the head, reducing the blade's tendency to catch on dry spots, and skin irregularities. Several Stahly razor models were marketed from 1946 until the 1970s. The idea (then as now) was to reduce irritation and provide a smoother shave. The bottom of the razor contained a watch-type torsion spring that the user wound up immediately prior to shaving. The spring powered a small eccentric crankshaft that caused the head to vibrate. It would vibrate for about three minutes between windings. At about 3000 oscillations ("sliding side-strokes") per minute (a 1954 advertisement claims 6,000 vibrations per minute, though it may be that instead of counting a single oscillation, advertising copywriters counted each movement of the head). The razor takes standard (modern) DE blades. The internal mechanical components create an odd balance to the razor; the head feels very light compared to the base, which is much heavier. Therefore, the razor is balanced essentially opposite to a standard DE razor. Because most of the weight is in the palm, the user may elect to grip the razor differently. Originally at 406 Columbia Street, South Bend, Indiana; by 1954, a division of Geuder, Paeschke Frey Co. of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The company ceased operations in 1978.[1] Dates in Production: 1946-1978 Type: DE Weight: 175-g Height: 92-mm Price 50.00 Shipping and Handling USPS First Class 5.60 USA Shipping and Handling Worldwide USPS First Class International Calculated by Location Terms of Sale: Please note: The items I sell are vintage, not brand new may have small imperfections.
