Le Grelot DE... ?

I thought they only made straights,

but Le Grelot produced safety razors and DE blades too...

Not mine, unfortunately!

I saw another one in much poorer condition than the one pictured above and thought others might be as interested as I was. So I did a little searching...

These old razors projected a very keen sense of quality, didn't they?

I have a Le Grelot DE on the way to me. I'll let you know how it looks and shaves. I may even post a pic or two.

Did you acquire this one from the ebay auction that ended a couple of days ago?

I agree. It appears to be the same razor as the Leresche 51.

I was going to bid too, but then forgot. I will be interested to see what you think of it.

Thanks Ben. I actually bid on the first one you show in this thread, but didn't continue to pursue it as there is a small crack on the handle and I thought it was a bit risky bidding on a razor with a crack.
