An interesting razor I stumbled over online; the design of the head seems to be an attempt to combine the stiffness of the safety bar with a sort of open comb - looks to me like you could get copious quantities of lather sliding under the blade between the three raised segments. According to Wikipedia, it is a British "Knockout" razor - anyone have any experience with it - or even just seen one?

Also seems to me like a workable suggestion for a 3D-printed razor-head - less fiddly bits to break Tongue

Awesome find Hans, I've seen a few metal/Bakelite combinations, but not in a tooth comb. Do you own this one?

Sadly not mine - but someone have put it on the Wikipedia article about safety razors.

Would like to see that with a blade in it. Looks kind of aggressive to me.

Looks similar to a British razor you see on ebay uk sometimes, the Myatt.

Neat! I just checked Waits Compendium and there really isn't much about it in that tome.
