This nice, vintage safety razor is called the Hero and comes with its original cardboard box. The large head reads; Hero Safety Razor - Made in U.S.A. - Pat'd Apr. 14, 1914, and has a single line scroll along the edge. The lever at the top drops into the notch to remove and replace the single edge blade which in this case is original and reads Hero across the top. Under the blade it reads; Use Only Hero Blades. The crosshatched handle can be screwed out of the head. The green cardboard box has the razor name on all sides of the slip on lid. According to the LW book, Safety Razors; A Price Guide, this razor was made by the Clark Blade Co. of Newark.
The razor measures about 3 ½" long and is in very good condition showing minimal wear. The box has seen better days with edge wear, small tears, soiling and water stains. It measures about 3 7/8" by 2 1/16" by 1 1/8".
