If no one on the board can answer that specific question, can someone please tell me which type of razor the MAJORITY of German men used during the 1930's and 40's? I know that the double edged safety razor had obviously been invented by that time, but I do not know how widespread its use was. Were the majority of German men still using a straight razor to shave in the 30's and 40's, or had most of them switched over to the double edged safety razor by then? I recently came across an on-line sale of a "Wehrmacht Shaving kit", which seemed to contain the classic double edged safety razor. Does this mean that I can at least assume that the vast majority of German soldiers used a double edged saftey razor to shave during this time period? ANY help from anyone on the board familiar with the shaving practices of German males in the 30's and early 40's would be appreciated. I have researched this subject on-line, and have been able to unearth very little. Thank you.
