Just ran across a NOS LeResche Open Comb with a stainless steel handle....no idea of what I should expect, but it looked too nice to pass up, especially a NOS razor from the 1920's.

Let me know if you have any experience with these bad boys.

As always, thanks fellas!

Jason, any pics of the razor?
I know Andrew, in Texas, has a Leresche, but it may be a closed-comb one. I have heard they are very nice shavers.
Congratulations! Biggrin

I've never seen a Leresche like that so I would be interested to see some more detailed pictures. However, the head looks like many Leresche OCs. They are very similar to the Merkur modern open combs; fairly mild but efficient. They require a pretty shallow shaving angle.

I have one a bit similar (not NOS but has a nice case), it shaves a lot like an Old Type, so on the aggressive side.

The Leresche razor is one of my absolute favorites. At least on mine, if you look closely the outer four combs are slightly raised, causing the blade to be above the inner combs, as opposed to lying flat like other open comb razors. I believe this is why the Leresch gives such excellent shaves.

Mine has the trademark Leresche "wings". Apologies for the bad shot, but this was a three-piece razor and it was hard for me to get a good angle. This was taken when I first got it, before I had even taken the blade out.
