Back in '71, a guy named Gregorio A Perez came up with an interesting single edged disposable that also carried a supply of shaving cream or gel in the handle. Or as the patent describes it:
A disposable razor in which a blade is molded therein with the edge thereof projecting from the shaving head and including a telescopic handle over a stem which is secured central of the shaving head and having a coaxial bore in the stem including a quantity of shaving cream for projection through the bore from an outlet in the razor head when the handle is manually moved over the stem.
- As drwn it's a SE with no visible guard, more like a shavette with the handle on the side.
- You better hope it don't get compressed while in the luggage...
- The angle of the head is quite close to my GEMs
...the handle is filled with a well known shaving cream which is adapted to be dispensed through a bore in the stem and through the head member when the handle is telescoped over the stem.An interesting patent, but I don't believe the razor was a success in the marketplace. A potential niche I can see for something like this razor in hotels and the like; a freebie on line with the tiny bottles of shampoo.
