Additional Information: 

From August 1970 advertisement:

“The new blades vs. Norelco. We won.  In an independent test, some very independent men shaved one side of their face with a platinum or chromium blade.  They shaved the other side with our Tripleheader 35T shaver.... Seven out of ten said our Tripleheader shaved them as close or closer than either the platinum or chromium blade.”
