Wonderful razor, for me a little smoother than the American version. Great deal for someone!

I find that the brass on the TTO "doors" of my English Gillette Aristocrat Junior is about 2mm thick. On my American made Aristocrat they're about 1mm thick.

Halve that again (.5mm) and you have the thickness of the "doors" on a Weishi TTO.
