Just another thing I stumbled over in my online wanderings - the tiniest travel razor I've seen so far.

I've found very little about it - patented May 11, 1921, made in the US, manufacturers logo is BP in a diamond. Reportedly it's a smooth razor, although challenging when shaving the 'off side' of the face.

Do I want one? Yes I do - but I have no idea where to find one for a reasonable pile of cash...

Very interesting design for sure. I am guessing that you hold it with your thumb on one tab and your fore finger on the other.  Should be a simple matter of switching hands to do the "off side" of your face just like using a straight razor.

That's a very interesting razor, i think i saw a video of GeoFatboy shaving with this once.

Edit: i think this is it for anyone interested

Looks to me like that would be perfect for what the video said,getting under the nose or even trimming and or lining up facial hair,actually it may be perfect for that IMO.

Haven't watched the video yet - I'm just thinking about all the blood, what with soapy, slippery, gripper digits...

OUCH!

Eeeeek

Wow, amazingly small razor. I wonder how easy it is to use.

after i saw the geofatboy video a couple months ago i liked around but couldnt find one.  I would bet you could follow the contours of your face well with one of these if the grip was good.
