Yohann was kind enough to let be borrow his open comb Fasan slant and I enjoyed using if for the past several days. It was time to send it back so last night I was getting ready to clean it and pack it up for its return trip to CT. Unfortunately the head did not want to unscrew and the post snapped. I feel terrible.

You might be able to remove the stud from the handle with thin pliers or a tool called an easy out. Those pins and stud are probably welded on and can break easily.

Luckily, I have another of these razors. Smile

I feel bad for Phil - it was going to happen sometime, and it sucks that it happened when he had it. It wasn't his fault, of course.

Something similar happened to me many years ago. I was taking care of a friend's hamster while she was on vacation, and it was doing fine.....until the point where it stopped eating and died!! Sad I was in shock for a while. There was nothing I could do (it happened within a day), but I felt terrible. I had to wait to tell her (no cell phones), and the wait was horrible.

Anyway, I'll see if this can be recovered. If not, I have parts for my other Fasan. Biggrin

Sorry to read about this -- I'm a sucker for the odd, marginal slants. I wonder if the comb plate would work on a Hoffritz or something?

A tip of my hat to both of you. Obviously Phil must have felt terrible when it happened, and to come out and tell everyone here that it broke on his watch shows what a great guy he is. Yohann nice gentlemanly response to the situation.
