I picked up a almost mint on E-bay for $15.00 and it can in fact use the GEM S.E. blades without any modification....I have heard it to be smoother than the Streamline...so this was an afordable option(no case or blades) but I don,t need any of those so tomorrow I shall test it out and compare it to my 1901,1912,Shovel Head and report back...hopefully not from the E.R...talk about OC...this looks amazing...(don,t know how to post picture but you can look it up on Google)...wish me well!!!!

Rapide or Wotan by Henckels Zwillingswerk is a nice shave gear!
I love it, specially with his wedge blades. Biggrin

Mine doesn,t look like that...basically open comb and has a wire bar which holds the blade in position...the blades slip under some levers and it is amazing...going to shave with it later today.

At any rate finally shaved with it and it is very nice....for me as a collector this razor just screams build quality...built like a PILS...fantastic loading mechanism and possibly the most unique look of any of my razors...best $15.00 I have ever spent...sorry don,t know how to post pictures but just look on Google and a couple of links on Badger and Blade come up.Smile

I have used both the Wotan and the Rapide. They do shave well. Blade angle is really necessary for shave quality. Be sure the SE blade is in and secure! If the blade slips there can be consequences.
