I bought this from a lovely man at Whitegate Boot sale who looks out for things for me now...he very kindly doesn't charge me much for these treasures either. This still has its box and instructions..

Twinplex Razor Sharpener

Found on the bootsale at Whitegate. After a little research on the internet, it seems to be a device widely used in America during the depression for prolonging the life of razor blades. it strops them on both sides, as the mechanism spins the blade over each rotation...wonder how it mades its way here?
