    Question SE / DE Honing & Stropping

    Hey - noticed there is some talk about honing SE / DE blades in this forum. I have a, "Rolls Razor", the one I have is in good condition, complete nickel case and box, even a DE razor included.

    I use SR's, but I couldn't resist picking this up at a yard sale.

    It's a Rolls Razor:

    The eponymous product was a sophisticated safety-razor which promoted with the slogan "The razor that is stropped and honed in its case".[1] [2]
    The case was a rigid rectangular frame enclosed by two detachable lids, one lid carried a stone and the other a leather. The lids could not be interchanged. With a lid removed, oscillating a handle drove a shaft along the frame, In both directions pinions on the shaft engaged with racks on the case to rotate the shaft to either push the blade forward against the stone or drag it against the strop.[3][4][5][6] It was easy to use, fast and safe. It was noisy as each change of direction rotated the blade to slap against stone or leather.

    Here's the link:

    I picked it up for like $5 bucks, if a seasoned member is interested, it's yours....
