Today's antique store find: a King razor plated in 22 karat gold. The roller on the top rolls against your face and makes the razor blade move back and forth. I'm actually more nervous about shaving with this than my vibrating Stahly razor.

After doing more research it turns out this razor was known as the King Oscillator and is one of the few safety razors out there that require proprietary blades! No wonder you don't see many of these around anymore...

That, and the description doesn't make me want to use it, either.

Oh man my face hurt just imagining that movement on my skin 😬

@Thalass Yeah, pushing a safety razor hard enough against my skin to roll that roller runs counter to everything I know about safety razor shaving.
