Aparat de bărbierit Gillette Adjustable, 1975

Safety Razor

An innovation was the replaceable blade cartridge containing the blade which reduced the risk of the user receiving a cut from the unprotected blades used up until then. These took the form of a cartridge, with the blade fixed within a plastic enclosure of the type still in use today.

[…]

If control could be maintained over the blade, the producer could raise prices at will, something that is not possible with safety razors. At the current time it is possible to find cartridge blades at a price of as much as $4.00 per cartridge while quality double-edge blades are frequently found for as little as $0.10.

Gillette Adjustable Safety Razor #2

A fost al bunicului meu, care nu folosea decât aşa ceva pentru a da jos barba. A fost suficient de bun pentru el, nu văd de ce n-ar fi ok şi pentru mine. Am să-l încerc o lună şi, dacă nu mă irită mai mult decât Gillette-ul modern sau aparatul electric, îl păstrez. De ce să dau câteva zeci de lei pe 4 cartuşe d’astea noi când pot da, bine-mersi, 5 lei pe un pachet de 5 lame pt aparatul vechi?
