Little liced be i A Rigid Shaving Edge The GILLETTE blade, thin enough to take a perfect temper, yet held absolutely rigid between the two plates of the frame, shaves as no other razor can shave. You know how the thin, tapering edge of the old-fashioned open- Made razor vibrates till it fairly rings when it strikes a stiff beard. The thin blades of other safeties are free to do the same. That's partly why they pull and gash. But the GILLETTE edge, the keenest and finest of all, is clamped so firmly that it cannot vibrmte or spring away from its work. Note how the curved outer plate presses the blade down tight against the teeth of the guard, making-the edge perfectly rigid. That is why it slips through the toughest beard so smoothly, quietly and easily. The genuine comfort of the GILLETTE shave. a revelation.
