Interesting. How is the blade stabilized?

The head has pins & locks like a Focus shavette & the blade acts like a spring to hold the head tight.

Focus recommend halved DE blades rather than the Shark/Derby Saloon blades. The break creates a spring to help secure & position the blade.

"For proper fixing it is advisable to use whole universal blades broken in half; this creates a slight curvature of the extremities in the area of the break, which once secured at the base of the razor head, creates a light pressure during the insertion of the movable head, this desired spring effect is essential & necessary for precise fixing & correct positioning of the blade."

It looks like there's no blade stops to keep the cutting edge from creeping forward.
Paul, can you post of close-up photo of the head where the blade sits?
