    I am going to post one of my shaves with this razor here because, after all, it is half-open comb.

    Thursday's Shave

    Proraso Pre Shave
    Speick Shave Cream
    Jayaruh #240
    САЙВЕР Razor Dual Comb
    Gillette Silver Blue
    CWR
    Thayer's Lemon WH
    Speick AS

    With this shave I am using only one blade with the САЙВЕР Razor Dual Comb razor. Yesterday, I put the blade on the bottom next to the base plate. Today, I moved the blade above the spacer next to the top. I started off with Proraso Pre Shave. The Williams Mug Shave Soap face-lathered well with the Jayaruh #240 synthetic brush. I did two passes with the САЙВЕР Dual Comb Razor with a Gillette Silver Blue blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Thayer's Lemon WH and then Speick AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed... It was a very efficient shave. I am really liking this razor. Tomorrow, I will be using my fat handle tech handle with it.

    Hi Dan - this is one of my SSSeygus razors from Spain - see https://sites.google.com/site/seygusrazor/
    I have 2 OC's and 2 SB's - all mild yet efficient - they're in the top of my list (although I like the rest of my razors - especially the vintage Gillette NEWs - about the same)... ;)

    Cool razor. I read your other write-up. Are you saying you used only 1 blade instead of the extra split blade in addition to a regular DE blade?

    My favorite looking Gillette. That is almost enough to bring me back to DE razors.

    Mr. Postman dropped of a package today and DR landed! I was actually expecting a bit of photoshop let down but this thing is pretty spiffy! The serial # is 34xx6 (I think it's 34156) so 1904! Pity about the bent tooth but I'm leaving it alone... Not worth the risk.

    I am using my Gillette New Improved the first week of the new year. It is a fine shaver.

    Nice! You were right, the Mono-bilt is a smooth, yet efficient stubble destroyer.

    It sure is, Herm! Glad you are loving it! I think we need to start a club and see how many people own these fantastic shavers.
