Anyone know anything about this razor?  All plastic design, presumably WWII issue 1941-1945?  Picked one of these up at an antique store the other day for 5 bucks.  Don't know if it would ever be a great shaver as it is VERY LIGHT... but, for historical and nostalgic value, it was well worth 5 dollars.  They must have made everything better in the 40's including plastic, this thing is in remarkable shape.  Any information would be much appreciated.

While I am not familiar with the razor, it is most likely bakelite. That would explain its shape so many years later.

Waits carries an entry for the Federal Razor Blade Company. First use, 1933. Gillette-type head fitted to a fluted light plastic handle. I guess yours is a variant with an all plastic head. Got a picture? What kind of comb/bar is it?
