    My latest arrival in the mail. Paid all of $20 with free shipping with this one! Serial number indicates this is a 1920 Old Type with Bulldog handle. I love it! Looks great in person. These pics do not do it justice at all But here it is!! Thoughts??

    That's a good looking razor. $20 is a great deal. I hope you enjoy it.

    Glad to be a member of Open Comb Central.
    Question: is this vintage SE razor one with Real Teeth ?

    If not - no problem, I've got almost 30 razors that qualify .... ;)

    The Shovelhead is a great razor, but unfortunately I don't think it qualifies as an open comb

    Colorful, pretty pic. Almost holiday-like. But, be it's April and summer is coming.

    Thank you Herm. I couldn't help myself with the juniper just outside and the sun shining.

    Well all, here is what I found under all that patina after doing the hot water, foil and baking soda thing. Not going to do more than that as it was a first and I do not want to ruin what plating is still there. Anyway, here it is!

    -Auto-Strop VC1 Razor
    -Personna Gem Blade (de-splined)
    -Erskine K-250 Badger Brush
    -Love My Skin Beau Brummel Cybilla Soap
    -Dickinson's Witch Hazel
    -Aqua Velva Musk After Shave


    My second shave with the Auto-Strop and it seems like I have gotten better on how to use it properly. Kept the head flat against my face, except for beneath the sideburns and goatee for a good trim job, and had a really great shave with it. It rivals the shaves I get with my Gems, well it is the same blade. Two passes with some touch up and it produced a very smooth and comfortable BBS shave.
