Sundown on the Union? Not so fast! There is a new U.S. made safety razor and it is affordable -$40 to $80 depending on the model.

Yes- there are essentially two variations (TTO and 3-piece) but then several different handles and finishes.

Interesting.

For those of us who have never used an EJ or HD, how would it compare to a vintage Gillette 3 piece?

I have only used one of the models so far but the model I used is heavier than a vintage Gillette. It was considerably more aggressive than a Tech for example and close in aggression to a Gillette New even though it is a solid bar design.
