Here are seven configurations of the Enterprise No. 33 ice shaves in my collection. Interesting point - The top row of shaves have 3624 on the under side of the lid and 3623 on the under side of the handle. The other four shaves do not have the numbers on either part. I wonder, why the difference? Could the shaves without the numbers be - made after the patent expired, or by another manufacturer?

Two blades, one on the bottom surface and one on the rear curved surface. The blades are double edged razor blades. MADE IN USA on the middle on the top of the base between the two blades. The wing nuts allow easy replacement of the blades.

I purchased this tool thinking it might be an ice shave. It has been properly identified by Mr. Bob Burgess of the UK. Bob remembers when he was a kid in the UK the tool was used by model aeroplane makers for shaving balsa wood. He also thinks they were marketed as part of the HOBBIES kit. He thinks there was also a third blade location that could be positioned on the right end of the item where to small hole is located.

 

Bob also provided links to two manufacturers who still make a similar plane. Samples of the planes are shown below.
