The Cheerio Razor Blade by the Wafer Razor Co. Ltd. of Sheffield.  Individually wrapped war department broad arrow marked razor blade.  This has been magnetized so that when suspended by a thread in a glass of water it would act as a compass for escape and evasion purposes.   Various different brands were used including 'Fleet',  'Dawn' and 'Cheerio'.

Some minor rust staining to the blade.  Still retains a little magnestism and will 'disrupt' another compass if held close.  We have four available, priced individually.  Stock code E22537-10.
