    I'd gotten behind on this thread. Your razor, the Cooper...that looks like a flip open top to me from looking at the pic. Does it? I'm not familiar at all with that brand, but it looks cool!

    Yes indeed it is a flip top or as Cooper called it a swing top. They were manufactured in the 20's-30's in the US and one of my absolute favorite open combs!

    I recently came across this Cooper, which is a traditional 3-piece rather than the one piece you have. I haven't shaved with it yet.[​IMG]

    If it shaves anything like the MonoBilt you are in for a treat, Herm!

    That's a stout looking razor. 346x0f4.jpg

    I've since been informed that the Cooper takes a proprietary blade. The center post is too wide. I might be able to modify a regular DE blade with a paper punch.

    That’s a nice looking razor, Jan. I’m not familiar with the brand. Is it European? How do you like it compared to your other outstanding hardware?
