Well I would like to share this with the community a new razor that I found....It is a Gillette 1930's "New" Open Comb
that has been replated in Rhodium and looks amazing, but now the case does show a bit of wear, but still in reasonable
condition I think.....here are a few photos that I took today. I hope this will be a great shaver, as I have heard many really like it....

Wow. That's beautiful.

I used to have a bar handle "red and black" NEW that I found in the wild at an antique store. It was a really great razor.

At some point I had so many razors that I consigned a boatload of them to a guy who does e-bay stuff professionally. I don't miss any of those razors except for my red and black.

I'll have to get another one someday.

Very nice Wallace! I like the white-ness of light coming off rhodium. Noticeably different than nickel.

Those New OCs give up a nice shave. Have fun!
