    I used a GSB. You have to slip the blade under the clip for it to for right. BTW, that was a steal.

    They were located next to the entrance ramp of the Brooklyn Bridge! Wow! I used to pass by there every day years back.

    Yet a different version. No diamond center, the Barbasol style baseplate. No Cooper markings but it sure looks like it would be. It's a bit less efficient than the other three piece and my least favorite of the three.

    I'm really just testing a way to streamline uploading photos from my phone without using tapatalk. But the photo is of a Cooper so I'll upload it here.

    Thanks! It is a very nice scent, first off you notice the oud and the rose, with the raspberry and the lime just adding a bit of sweetness and tang.

    I might have to keep an eye out for it. Thanks

    I finally found one and used it today. Had a bit of an issue on getting the blade loaded, and had a ripple on one edge. Going to try and make sure the ear of the blade is under the clip when I load it next time. The shave was great. Head geometry on this allows getting a nice shallow angle that most DEs won't allow. Had a decent 3 pass shave, even with a blade I don't particularly care for.

    Well, I mostly post on a couple of other forums, but like what I see here, so I thought I'd join in on the fun! I acquired my Cooper Monobilt last May at an antique/consignment store. I really like the flip top on it, and while the first couple of shaves with it were questionable, I bit of technique refinement turned it into a super nice shaver:

    Round two with the Monobuilt. Works much better when you slide the blade under the tab on the open side.

    Get that blade loaded right and it'll be a great shave! Nice one.

    Ladies and Gents the Cooper Stereobilt Double Open Comb. No more distorted blades. Tested, it's a thing. Full shave report tomorrow.[​IMG]

    Cooper three piece/Yaqi DOC. The Yaqi fixes what's broke with the Cooper (distortion of non-Cooper blades) and transforms the neglected StereoBilt into a mild but efficient machine. Fresh Nacet. Keeper.[​IMG]
