Winchell's Disposable Razor

The retail carded display pictured here is from J.D. Haile’s collection is complete with all 24 sealed original razors! I asked Jim if he would write a bit about the rare piece. CD

From J.D. (Jim) Haile:

Paul Winchell was far more then a ventriloquist, he was also a painter and inventor. Paul invented and patented the artificial heart that was implanted in a cow. He also invented the disposable razor seen here. Unfortunately he never had it patented. He was told that no one would buy a razor to use and throw away! Sure Paul, next you'll be telling us that people will pay a dollar for a small bottle of water!
