Another of those "holy grail" razors, this one has found its way to me. While I'm generally nota fan of open combs, I'll say least be giving this a worthy try. I try to keep a working collection, so hopefully I enjoy the shaves from this diamond in the rough.

Great find!
An open comb TTO is one of my grail items too. Let us know how it shaves.

Very good find. I'll look forward to seeing images after it's been polished up and hearing how you like it after using it.

Wow! This thing is crazy aggressive... I'm glad I'm able to at least experience it so I know not to drool over one again.

On the aggressive scale is there a razor you could liken it to?

I'm not very good at discerning aggressive razors, but it felt like most other open combs I've tried like the LC NEW or Cadet.

Go figure! I have one and I don't find it overly agressive at all. I find my NEW OC much more so. Often, weepers galore.

The 30s Aristocrat is one of my favorite shavers. I prefer longer handles but it's too pretty to be picky. It like like complaining that Marissa Tomei is too short!

Well, every face is different. I plan on trying it a couple more times of it doesn't sell, it just feels so rough, but everything aligns just fine. I've been getting spoiled with overly mild razors I guess and have let my guard down.
