You pay me a Penny

--and a Postal gets it. I Guarantee to Keep your Blades Sharp Forever Without Charge


I am the man you hold personally responsible for every promise mule in this advertisement.


Will you let me send you a razor-without a cent deposit? Then I will keep it sharp and keen for the rest of your life free. That's my plan-my new plan of selling razors.

No other razor makers in the world sell razors this way-because they can't-their razors won't stand it. Mine will-it's the way it's made.

Now, I don't say "Send me the price of the razor, and it, fter you have tried it, you find that it isn't all I claim, I will send your money back." Not me.

On a "money back" proposition you may feel that there was some chance of not getting your money back if you wanted it-I won't let you feel that way about my razor.

For if the razor don't do all I say, you send it back at my expense, and you're out nothing for you've paid me nothing and you owe me nothing.

Simply do this-Send me your name, occupation, home and

[ocr errors]

business address-and in any manner that is convenient and agreeable to you introduce yourself to me. I'll take all the risk and send, prepaid, a Sterling Safety Razor with 24 blades, or an Old Style Interchangeable Razor with 12 blades.

You see the Sterling Razor is so much better than any other razor that I can afford to send one without any payment or deposit.

When you have tested it 7 days, if you find it the finest and easiest shaving razor you ever used, keep it. Then the razor must pay for itself-that's my new plan.

You see the average man should be shaved at least three times a week-at 15c. a shave that's 45c. a week for shaving.

So, if you decide to keep the razor, all I ask you to pay me is what you'd pay the barber-45c. a week for a few weeks until the razor is paid for.

That way I make the barber buy you the razor.

At that my razor doesn't take any more money to pay for itself than you would have to pay out of your own pocket for an ordinary razor.

And I go even farther. I see to it that your blades are kept sharp forever-free,

With any other safety razor you are always paying out money because you must keep on paying for new blades or resharpening as long as you live.

But with the Sterling, all you do is, send me 12 dull blades, at any time, with 10 cents to cover mailing expenses, and I return them to you perfectly sharp, free of charge.

That's really "no honing and no stropping.

Did you ever hear of anything as clever as this in the razor line?

It's this way-the reason I can make this offer is because I'm not in the least doubtful or afraid of my razor.

My STERLING blades are made of the finest razor steel that money can buy-costs me twice as much as the steel used in any other razor blades.

And mine is the only razor on the market that is made of genuine Sheffield Steel-that is not a cold rolled steel.

With my careful, systematic process, each STERLING blade is hardened, tempered, ground and honed in oil, and then stropped-so that my razor must hold its edge.

And each of my STERLING blades must pass the SHERMAN test, the most rigid test to which a razor blade can be subjected. I must make certain that the temper and cutting edge of every STERLING blade are perfect and lasting.

I cannot afford to pass any but faultless razor blades, because I send you the razor, prepaid, for free trial without any deposit but your name, address and the introduction. If you don't introduce yourself to me I will have to write you to do so, and that will delay shipment of the Sterling.

After you have tried it for a week you can buy the Sterling Razor for $5.00 cash or postal order, but I am willing to let it pay for itself.

Now-write me to-day, stating whether you wish the Safety or Old Style Interchangeable, and let me send you the razor. State whether you wish to cut close or medium, and whether your beard is wiry or fine. Don't send me any money-only a postal.

Remember the razor is yours for a week free-then either keep it and let it pay for itself with the guarantee that I must keep the blades sharp forever-free-or return it to
