BLADE The “Valet” AutoStrop is the only safety razor with a self-contained automatic stropping device, and for this reason its blades last, on an average, four times as long as those of the “no-stropping” type. Probably because of this advantage, and also of the cheapness of ” Valet ” blades, the public do not always exercise economy in their use. The following hints will enable users to get even more than the two months’ service which is claimed as the average life of a single “Valet” AutoStrop blade: Use no abrasive strop dressing, and keep your strop free from grit. Don’t over-strop 10 seconds daily will keep your blade in the pink of condition. Don’t let anything hard touch the blade edge. Hold the blade almost flat against the face. It shaves better, besides lasting longer. There is no shortage of “Valet” blades at present, but in view of constantly increasing manufacturing difficulties reasonable judgment and economy should be exercised in their use. The price of the Standard Set, which consists of ” Valet” Razor, 12 “Valet” Blades, and “Valet” Strop, complete in handsome case, is One Guinea, and may be obtained of all high-class dealers throughout the world. “VALET” Safety Razor The word ” Valet” on Razors, Strops, and Blades indicates the genuine product of the AutoStrop Safety Razor Co., Ltd., 61.
