Thank you for the explanation. I just ordered another Cadet OC head razor and thinking about a tto. Thanks for the heads up.

I just received a TP-26 (black handle with open comb). I am very impressed with the initial quality and feel. Alignment and uniformity of plating are excellent especially considering the price.

I did buy it for a PIF I'm putting together for a friend but am planning to test it first to see if I think it is appropriate for a wetshaving novice.

The long screw head is too long to work with my Weber bulldog handle.

Fast shipping and well-packed, thanks Joe.

For purposes of documentation, compatibility and enabling, gents. To say that Cadet screw protrudes 11.4 mm from the comb, and fits well in UFO handles, which supported from 14 mm of U1 to 18 mm of U2 and Godzilla.

I'm very tempted to try this but I can't see the link to buy a head alone. Could anyone post a link for me please?

Thanks

Dipesh, as far as I know the head is not for sale on it's own any longer - it may be that he only had a limited number for sale.

However the complete razors with an open comb runs for only 24US, which is pretty cheap and will give you a spare handle.

Thanks for the info. $24 USD triggers a lot of import duties when sending to the uk so it's not so cheap by the time it gets here. Shame that.

Maybe have someone ship it to you marked as a gift? That raises the limit a lot in Norway at least... not sure what the rules are in the UK.

Hello Dipesh, check with Joe on how he ships to the UK. None of my international friends from Google+ had to pay import duties.

When I ship anything to the UK, I always list it as a gift and a value of less than £10.

I have just started using OC razors. I have two I alternate and have an old type on the way. I found the TP27 significantly more aggressive than my Merkur 25, but still quite manageable. Where does the old type fit relative to these other two? Also, any buying advice for other OCs is much appreciated.

I received mine today. A tp-26 black handle with open comb.

Its looks great and shaves even greater. In fact this is the best razor i have ever used. Thanks to my "elephant hide" i dared to try it out even though i already shaved this morning with my Frankenrazor. This time only 1 pass wtg though. The blade was a 3rdtime used Shark.
Feels wise to try out a new agressive razor with a mild blade.

So to conclude. Its feels like the Fatip in performance or possible even better, but like the NEW lc when it comes to the easy handling.

This one will be one of my most used in the future!

Salutations to Dr. Dulcamara for my subject title! Wave1

I received a TP-24 from S-A-B this morning. It was an OC, not the CC I requested.

Debated for 30 or 40 minutes with myself. I knew I'd have to get an OC someday, right? Dodgy And here, fate put one into my fig bat fists!

So, loaded a new Israeli Blue into it, whipped up some of Krissy's very fine emu oil SC and carefully started to shave. This was noticeably closer-shaving than any of my seven CC axes. I did three passes and am delighted. The smoothest BBS shave I've had in two years of this mishugahss*.Biggrin

A keeper! :yho: I declare myself the newest entrant in the BOTOC! Clap

Welcome brother to both BOTOC and the Cadet lovers club! It is hard to beat the efficiency of the Cadet OC, I haven't pick up the FaTip since I recieved mine. I do enjoy using other razors as variety is the spice of life, but the Cadet really shines in it's performance.

Looking forward to seeing how well I like this new piece. I still love my 34C and 38C and my J4 SS. But they're a different category, aren't they?

I love this whole mess! Biggrin

Are the new Cadets different? I just got one and the handle is huge and heavy.. Just asking.

As I wrote in my reviews of both the Cadet CB and OC models, incredible bang for the buck from these razors. I really like the black / chrome handle.
