Hopefully when @efsk covers Leresche history, he will cover the Leresche 77. This has got to be the most unusual and scariest looking razor I own, although I am sure efsk has scarier and more unusual looking razors.
This razor has the guard as part of the cap and the base plate only secures the blade. In addition, the guard has upward facing teeth that look like that giant shark in the movies. The most unusual part, though is that it is a medium to mild shaver and very comfortable.
Same razor as above except it is cased and instead of chrome it is nickel. Unless it is silver and it has yellowed. Some platingissues near the top of the handle.
Last pic shows it next to the chrome one above.
a recent acquisition, asking to be shown here:
A bit enlarged:
It is a very nice travel set, Gillette old type style, but with a twist:
The comb is obviously modified in the way that the teeth are flattened to give it more blade exposure.
The set is very nice, blade banks are marked Leresche, it still has a Leresche soap and brush:
Did wander about the teeth, and found other leresche's in my collection with the same flattening:
Btw, the travel set came with two different blades:
And yes, I still need to shave with it...the flattened teeth make me curious though.
I used to own these two great condition sets. I really like Leresches for their mild shave, however they saw no use so I moved them on. I forget the set #’s but the one in the back has that awesome ‘double knurling’, wonderful.
Also, if you are into Leresches see this great website for model overviews - made by Cha-Wing!! - note that there is English translation also
