A tool designed and manufactured by, Smith & Wesson, the legendary U.S.A. gun manufacture, and sold by Wesson Products Company in the 1930's, is a "Blade Saver", made to safely hold your "Safety Razor Blades" while sharpening them on a razor strap in the same manner as a straight razor. They made three types marked I, II & III. Types I & II were for the two types of double edge blades then in use, and type III was for single edge blades.
Shown are the three types manufactured (close-up of the type I), a GEM Damaskeene Stropper, a Gillette razor (back marked, K REG US PAT OFF 2 GILLETTE MARCAS REGS), a pack of VALET Auto Strop Blades, (Autostrop Safety Razor Co. Inc. New York, U.S.A. Patents Nos. 1,088,220 - 1,639,335) and a copy of the original advertisement for the Blade Saver showing directions for use.
