Schick Repeating Razor - Type C

This is the Schick Magazine Repeating Razor. Known as the Type C, it was manufactured from 1933-41. I am in negotiations for a trade and hope to acquire this really neat piece of history. Colonel Schick was the brains behind this razor. He was inspired by the repeating rifles of WWI and wanted to make a razor that you could change the blades without touching them. A magazine of 20 blades was loaded into the handle and by turning the head to line up with the handle and then pulling back a plunger and pushing it forward again, you could push in a new blade and eject the old blade with one smooth motion.
