Last week

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - HOME -

Adrian Jack was first cab off the rank this week, iden­ti­fy­ing the Kriss Kross ra­zor blade sharp­ener.

Go­ing back to the 1920s, these handy gad­gets were used to give ra­zors a slick edge for the clos­est shave.

Elaine Sale sent in a photo of the gad­get, made by the Rhodes Man­u­fac­tur­ing Com­pany in the United States. They were de­signed for the newer safety ra­zors, which rose in pop­u­lar­ity af­ter the straight ra­zor. This spec­i­men fea­tures a leather disc in a chrome hous­ing.

Some other wor­thy guesses in­cluded a tape mea­sure and a music box.
