One of the weirdest razors I know of is this Firm Blade. Apparently based in Portland, 4913 SE Powell Blvd somewhere around 1945, it has a wooden egg for a handle and uses a proprietary, curved SE blade. Apparently there's a version without wooden knob, and I've seen a pic of one with a different knob.

Nice one.
Waits compendium and the patent claim that its a razor for half DE blades.
Waits: "Uses one-half of a Gillette-type double-edge blade"
Patent: "The blade ... is substantially one-half of the width of the ordinary wafer blade"

The patent is on my to-do list.
