    Have you compared the head geometry of the two Cooper's ?

    I'll bring both my Coopers out this morning . I have not yet bothered with a punch with the three piece as pressing the blade on has always worked ok.

    Razorplate. In nickel. Pics? Definitely, but it won’t be back for a few months.

    A very leisurely shave with two Coopers. The three piece being hollow handled is considerably lighter and you can see head geometry is not identical. In shaving the feel is quite different, the Monobilt feels milder and much more sensitive to angle. In terms of results, they're close enough, personally I prefer shaving with the three piece as it allows me to be lazier about angle and delivers great results. I use tungsten putty in the three piece to give it a little more heft. Fresh Nacet in both. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Nice comparison. I'll have to get out there 3-piece tomorrow, I'm due for a razor change.

    Cool that there are variations in the handles. Wonder if that designates the period of manufacture.

    I'm not sure, I know I've seen far fewer of the diamond knurled handle come up on the Bay.

    Found this on YouTube, not real informative, but good info on the 3-piece Cooper.

    I have a mono-bilt that has a problem. The hinge side of the head has been bent/damaged and I can't get the blade in correctly. Afraid to try repairs as it will probably do more damage. A shame really as I would like to try it out.

    Perhaps Cap'n Murphy at Vintage Razor Repair or Razor Emporium can repair it?

    I saw online that if you just tighten down the head the small difference in the fit doesn't matter. Guess I'll find out.

    Looks like there was a gold Cooper also.

    This head is slightly different than mine. Note the center stub is not diamond shaped. Makes me wonder if I used a different top cap.

    I scored a Monobilt in rural Amish Ohio for around $12. I’ll pull it out tomorrow. Any blade suggestions?
