Schick Krona

Schick Krona Adjustable.

There are at least three patents on this razor, all filed in 1965, one granted in 1966/07 and the second in 1967/02 and the third in 1968/01, so at one point Schick must have considered competing in the DE adjustables market.

Its branded a Schick as can be seen under the TTO/Adjuster knob and from what I can gather, this logo was used around 1965-7. This was a prototype that never got to market. Other than the Schick under the TTO knob, there are no other manufacturers markings anywhere on the razor, which would be further evidence of this.


The TTO knob doubles as the adjuster as well. In order to open it, you dial it past 9 and a spring mechanism pops the doors open. When the doors are open the numbers are covered. In order to close it, you pull the TTO knob down and rotate.

How does it shave: Hey guys its a Krona, they were made to be great every day shavers - This one is no different.

I have seen those before but only in random pics. This is the first time I see one up close. It is interesting that Schick would invest R&D in designing an adjustable feature for basically a cheap, plastic razor. Then again, the Krona is a very good shaving razor, and even Feather came out with an adjustable plastic razor, though not as complex or as adjustable.:daumenhoch

There are not too many of them around.
The big razor companies were and still are all about selling blades. This would be more costly to manufacture and add the fact that normal Krona is a great everyday razor - this didn't add too much to the pot, I can see why it didn't go ahead.
