The stronger the edge, the longer its life Seen under a lens, every Gillette blade has a steel shoulder or buttress behind the cutting edge, rather like the blade of a chisel.' This construction, the outcome of three stages In the sharpening process, gives such strength behind the cutting edge that you obtain many more smooth shaves than the ordinary blade will give. The edge of many a blade is damaged by o"L careless unwrapping before it is ever, used. o So carefully is the Gillette blade packed that the cutting edges are not permitted to touch even the inner wrapper, as you will see by holding it up to the light; If you will take equal care in handling it, you can get many more shaves per blade.
