Description
A mostly metal razor blade sharpener with a rotating handle, two turning sharpeners, and a holder for the blade. Inscribed on the sharpener is "Twinplex / Chicago Ill. / Made in U.S.A. / Foreign Patents Issued or Pending / May-29-1919 / U.S.A. Patents Apr-13-1915 Dec-11-1917 / May-27-1919 Mar-23-1920". The sharpener is slightly oval shaped with the handle at one end and a hole at the top through which you can see two sharpeners and the blade holder. The handle is crank shaped with a wooden end. It is at one end and on one side of the sharpener. The two sharpeners are mostly covered in a hard black rubber-like material, and they turn opposite each other when the handle is turned. In between and over top of the two sharpeners is the blade holder. The holder can be pulled out from one end, and it consists of two metal pieces on a hinge that the blade fits through. When that handle is turned the holder flips once for each rotation, then waits in that position until the next rotation begins when it flips again.
