I just today won an auction for what appears to be an old Lather Catcher. It comes in a blue/purple velvet lined case with a chrome tube which supposedly still contains some of the shave stick, a stroppjng handle, and of course...the razor.
It is a Lather Catcher design. On the back it says "EAGLE IMPROVED" and "ABOVE 'EM ALL". It has a metal handle that looks as though the stroppjng tool will screw into the bottom. Inside the top on the case, it says "EAGLE de LUXE" in a scripty writing.
Anyone have any info on these? Very little other than pics on my other site for shaving.

Waits devotes quite a write up on the brand, but basically it only describes the sets. In the pix provided it looks quite nice. Please let us know how it shaves.

Razor arrived today. I will have to wait till I'm off to give it a go with shaving. Set looks even better than the pics. Very happy with this unusual lather catcher. I will report back when I get the chance to shave with it.

It needs a double hollow ground blade to be safe. The Big Three back then made very similar razors and that is one of them. They all shave well when the blade angle is close to the face.
The little spring in the back is to hold the DHollow in place.

In that case, I shall marvel at its beauty in my collection.
