totally random, I know, but after buying a lather catcher that requires a wedge blade, and geezer being kind enough to lend me one to try, I figured I'd get a photo of the thickness difference of the spine (if you will) of the wedge blade versus the spine on a modern SE blade.

Andrew, can you also position them blade to blade so we can see the difference on that end as well?

Thanks!

Yeah, It's huge! Essentially it's a straight razor segment.

Good luck with your shave!

I imagine those wedgeblades didnt come cheap. Looks like a very solid construction.

They are a lot more expensive now! I await a few purchased from overseas and they equate to about $15+ each and the quality of those few is uncertain, till I receive them. Then, again, they do last almost forever! So they may shave my grandchildren as well as myself. They do shave well if I hold the blade / face angle properly. The ends of the edge/bevel are shielded by the razor and that was one thing they got right from the beginning.

PS Andrew, those are the best photos of those blades that I have seen!

I really don't know anything about photography, so all the credit goes to my Samsung Galaxy SII! My phone, with it's excellent camera and video recorder is supplanting my actual digital camera and camcorder.
