    Question American made SE razor listing?

    I was wondering if there was a listing somewhere that I could reference as to all the SE razors that were made by US manufacturers. It doesn't have to list every individual razor made, but just the actual manufacturers who produced SE razors.
    (Also it would be great if there was a listing that had them by country, but right now I am only interested in US made SE razors.)

    The only American manufacturers I can think of on the top of my head are:
    Kampfe
    ASR - GEM, Ever-Ready, & Star
    Larkin
    Christy
    Valet (Auto-strop)
    Keen Kutter


    Also, I would note that I did not put any of the injectors on the list, like Schick. To me, they are just too close to the cartridge razors. (I mean no disrespect to those who use, enjoy, and cherish their injectors. It is just not something for me.)

    Gold Manufacturing Co. made a couple of models of SE (College, Military). There may be others.

    Yankee Manufacturing Co. was a forerunner to ASR. They were only in existence as a separate company for about 3 years, although the Yankee brand razors were made for many years after that.

    Thank you Alex!
    Were all of them actually produced, or just patents? (Sorry, I am not familiar with Waits. I'm assuming it's a listing of razors?)
