    Default Can anyone ID this vibrating razor I saw at the antique store today?

    Sorry for the crappy pics, I only had my cell phone on me at the time.




    It was a vibrating razor. If you twisted the bottom, it wound a spring concealed in the largest part of the base, and the head of the razor would vibrate.


    Any idea what it would be worth? I'm considering going back to buy it if someone would make it worth my trouble.

    Here's some info:

    stahly live blade razor

    A bit of history on vibrating razors, if you scroll down you find something on Stahly:

    Electric Shaver Museum, Electric Safety Razors exhibition (no-frames/text-only version)

    Just buy it and let us know! I would like to add one health warning: "If used as a vibrator do not put a blade in it"

    Viola: can you explain to me what PCR means? I am a non-native speaker trying to increase my knowledge ot the English language: still learning at 47 years of age!
    To me PCR means Polymerase Chain Raction, a thing you cannot shave even if you want to.

    PCR stands for the Project Coochie Razor thread, which is about shaving the female genital area.

    I learned how to shave with one of these. I scored it for free. It also didnt have all of the vibrating parts in it. When I got it, it was just a regular razor.

    Had a party about ten years ago and my beloved razor was liberated from my bathroom... never to be seen again.

    Been looking for a replacement ever since. Believe it or not, this is the first time I have laid eyes on that contraption in 10 years.

    Thank you for posting !!

    I always liked the closeness of the shave I got from that razor.

    Yup it's a Stahly Liveblade. I've even taken them apart and fixed them. They came in Gold, Silver and Platinum (or rhodium cannot remember which).

    Those Stahly Liveblades are actually pretty good razors. They are a bit bulky, but shaves very well nevertheless. Amazing that it took Gillette over 60 years to copy this!
