That razor will outshave any new razor made. YMMV of course.
Hey, I DID warn everyone with the thread title.
I would agree. No need to be scared of the push button. Very solid razor.
I know. I 've read all about zamak and the fact that today they don't use brass and such. Still, i prefer to buy a new one than touch that.
As I posted in a flea market find thread, there are MUCH cleaner examples out there. This one looks like it was stored at the bottom of a soap dish... for 40 years.
I actually shave with a brass autostrop that was found under a house. They do clean up.
The MMOC is an excellent shaver. Yours looks like it will perform well.
Here is a cruddy one I received

1) Do you have an ultrasonic cleaner.
2) need me to send you some SC-1000?
I think yours came out of the same 40 year old soap dish that mine did.
I love that picture. I wonder where it came from.
It would appear someone took this still from Theatre of Blood and did a little Photoshop work.
Let's see it after a cleaning!!
Where did you get the blades and how much were they? I bought a 100 pack of Gem 2 facets for under $6, they work ok
but I think the 3 facets would be better. Thanks.
The three facet blades are apparently medical prep blades, for cutting samples for slides. I don't believe that the facets have anything to do with the sharpness of the blades - it's how polished they get in the process of sharpening. It's the last bevel cut (at the tip) that matters, after all.
I did a search on personna gem 62-0178 and came up with a lot of links.
http://www.americancleanstat.com/straight-edge-razor-blades.html - anyone want to pay $808.54 for 5,000 of them?
There are a bunch of different ones here - http://www.razorbladeco.com/single-edge-blades but you'd have to research them to determine which are the ones you want. Another site says that the three facet are under 'gem', and two facet under 'Personna'.
Here are some more. Not cheap - https://us.vwr.com/store/product/13668710/single-edge-razor-blades-accutec-blades
Those 100 blade cartons of Gem PTFE are available from Connaught Shaving in the UK at a very reasonable price - best price and shipping I could find anywhere when I went shopping for Gem SE blades several months ago.
