    John Watts New Service razor

    Amazing little contraption, this razor made by the 1765 founded John Watts in Sheffield. Peter has done some digging up history of the company, so I'll just bother you with the razor, which was first released and patented in the UK in 1929, in the US in 1931. I placed this in my slant...

    After years of searching one of my holy grail razors finally arrived. Family resemblance with other offerings from producer Hermann Zaiss is unmistakable: same two-tone handle, same head, similar clasp-mechanism to connect both. Except of course, this is not slanted. And the base is blank...

    Brumml, Sausalito. Basically rebranded Merkur, as were Hoffritz, Coles, Pomco, etc. Don't know nothing about the brand except that, and the fact I own two Brumml razors. For instance this beautiful 38, as they were called by Merkur, back when the 38 was stil a slant. As it's gold, would be a 38g...

    Gillette Psycho

    In the line of prisonrazors, the best known is probably the Gillette Psycho. Basically, a Tech with a fat, hollow handle, only openable with a key. As the razors were sold in boxes of ten razors and one key, most that are around do not have one. The reason they need a key is that the inmates...

    Vintage Merkur

    As I know it's Merkur it doesn't really fit the unknown DE section, yet 've no idea what model it is. Maybe lump the vintage Merkur of unknown type in this thread, and separate them in their own thread as soon as identification is provided. Came to me in a lot, this oldie. Don't know anything...

    Le Figaro

    Although the Figaro uses DE blades, it is an SE: only one side of the blade shaves. It is also an example that the French have their own ideas about razors. The whole thing is thin. Folded in, in a closed box it is only 6mm thick. Unpacked, you turn the head a quarter of a turn to be ready for...

    Gentlemen, ladies too, I'd like to introduce you to my Darwin Single Edge razor. A model not that often seen model and when you see they can be pricey. I was lucky with this one, in that it was at least an advantageous "Buy! Now!" offer, back in 2015. The Darwin was seen as a luxury counterpart...

    Unknown Adjustable Angle Slant

    Been sitting in my displaycabinet for quite a while now, never used it as it's too pretty. Kabrand-type adjustable angle razor in pastic, with metal cap. Cap is interesting, in that it has a triangle kind of shape. DRPG, so apparently German made.

    Here's a nice Swedish SE that is not seen or talked about that often. Petty, really, as it is stunning in its simplicity. Just a bit more complex that a Rolls or a Darwin SE, but without the stropping machines that are an integral part of those. The Doma is basically a handle with a baseplate...

    An SE @gvw755 pointed me at. Takes thin blades, clamped down by the cap that is branded Krytyk. Bottom of the base only has Pat'd July 18, 1911. Patent meant is number 998009, patentee Floyd D Jones. Razor was produced by the Jones Razor & Mfg. Co., Kansas City, Missouri. U.S. and has a head...

    Still V.E. Angle

    A few years back I found razorblades of the Still Angle brand. Pics showed these to be far from standard, and suggested a slanted razor, so I bought a bunch. Ever since I've been searching for the razor that should hold them. The blades: Then, recently, I found a razor advertised as the Still...

    The Oblyc is a very nice razor with adjustable tilt. It is basically the same head as the Volcanic with a different handle. Here's a nice travelset. Not sure if the brush is original. Head is branded Oblyc No2, BvteSGDR. Made by Unis France.

    For a long time I've had a razor that I didn't know what brand/modell it was. Both were printed on the head, but which was what? Then I found a razorlot on ebay that made things clear. The thing that struck me immediately is the condition of the shipper: almost as new. Advertising the good...

    Schick Injectors

    The Schick Injector is a razor with history. The first models were produced 1926, sales in the US stopped 1998, 2003 models were still produced. Of course, different models were produced over this period of time, in that sense longest continuous run probably still goes to the Merkur 37, however...

    Eversharp (Norway)

    It was a little confusing, this razor. Eversharp, isn't that Schick? Didn't Gillette have something to do with it back in the day? Big question marks until @sɐǝɹpu∀ found the solution: there was an Eversharp in Norway that was not related to Schick or Gillette. He even showed the patent for it...

    I got this Volcanic from France. A slant where the head can be adjusted in three steps, both extreme steps are the same here, so actually only two :) Mechanism is the same as that of the Oblyc, also from France. Where with this kind of razor normally a joint is built into the screw, here the...
