...also known as razor blades. The oldies amongst you will remember these.

My father used seven o'clock and suggested I did too but this soon gave way to a beard.

Gilette blades were not overly popular outside the US, the UK (and its Commonwealth, I suppose). Wilkinson was better known. So much for "known the world over". My father still believed "wet" and "dry" shaving were equivalent, my grandfather shaved "wet" only. I tried "wet" once when I'd forgotten my shaver and found it awful. When it happened again (in Tokyo, of all places), I bought a small, battery driven shaver that is now the shave-in-the-car solution.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

I remember getting them in a cardboard package individually wrapped but also at a different time in a little metal dispenser that you slid out a new one to use.
Now I just use a throw away shaver but I skip as many days as possible. I don't enjoy the chore at all. Wet or dry...makes little difference to me and i do both inconsistently.
