There were several single edge razors that used double edge blades. This is one of them. I do not know whether this was an early prototype or a model from a company that there is not a lot of information on.

I went through Waits Compendium and found a very similar razor type. Here is a razor that used a three hole that would handle a double edge blade.

I don't know whether this company made different variants but what you have is an unusual but unidentified razor.

Very rare and very interesting. Used half a double edge blade sort of the forerunner of the shavette. Thanks for sharing.

I really like the design behind that Tuckmar. Especially the little notches that seem to allow you to place the blade further forward if you like, increasing the aggressiveness.

Very cool!

Your razor is very cool too, mfitz. I wonder if modern DE blades will fit on that thing. The posts may be a bit too large, but I cannot tell from the pics.

All the best with your search for information.
