[Image: WvOqICT.jpg][Image: BJ1QLJI.jpg][img]http://[/img]I bring to you the only twist to open, Open Comb, high quality safety razor in production worldwide. Two new models from Cadet which we had cut down a bit to about 3 1/2 inches long. Nice pieces which I am certain you will enjoy.

Im sure I wasn't the only wet shaver to have wished an OC TTO was in production...thanks for reading my mind!!! Any reason why they were cut down? have you tried either yet?if so how do they compare the straight bar TTO same Cadet model?

I cut these down a bit to give those who wanted the retro Gillette feel an option. Some complained the other style was a big bit and heavy. It worked out because the balance of these pieces is still very much in tact.

The shave is perfect. I would estimate the heads to be slightly less aggressive than the closed safety bar models. There is a lot of blade exposure from narrow doors, but the tines or forks of the comb counter this and make the shave pleasant. Two shaves and no weepers of cuts, not a lot of noise either.

Your mileage will vary as everyone is different.

Ooh looks great Joe. You mentioned the safety bar, but how would you say this compares to the aggressiveness of the 3-piece Open Comb cadet?

I'm going less aggressive right now than a three piece head.

Today is a mail holiday for Columbus Day celebrations. There should be a fair amount of the new razors hitting your mailboxes Tuesday. I look forward to your thoughts and hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

First shave with mine today. Smooth and easy. Nice change from my more aggressive razors like the FaTip and R41.

At the beginning of the thread, I was interested just for the novelty. This, though, just about seals the deal for me. I love my Cadet OC, but might like it just a touch less aggressive.

Guess it's time to make a little order.

I got one of these back in December as an anniversary present from the Mrs. I really like it, and have been using it nearly exclusively since then, up until getting my iKon slant last week.

It's a very nice piece of hardware. Instead of a knob on the bottom, the whole handle acts as the knob, with a collar attached to the head making it easy to hold. Blade alignment is effortless and correct. Once the mechanism is closed, it doesn't easily creep open like the Lady Gilette.

Like Joe said earlier in the thread, it is a bit milder than the 3-piece open comb from cadet. It has a small blade gap, unlike the 3 piece where the blade rests on the comb, so the technique is a bit different, but not hard.

I'm really pleased to have it.
