Not sure what this is mixed in with a ebay lot I just picked up.
Looks like a Cooper
I think to be specific, a 1932 cooper like this one ....
That could be fun then. I will have to look it up. Thanks for the info!
Possibly a Swee-do
Looks more like a Swee-do to me. The way the lettering is spaced is more like the way the Swee-do was marked "SWEE-DO" on the left, and "PAT. PEND." on the right. Where the Cooper was marked with "COOPER" on both sides.
Thanks. Prolly not a useable razor. I bought the lot for others in there.
If you swap out the top plate you may be able to use it; the handle looks great. PM me, if it needs a new home.
It is a two sided razor thingie!
I will let you know!
You got that right...
If it is a Cooper, it's a great shaver. I have a Cooper and it is in my top 5 DE razors.
It is usable. Some use a hole punch on the blade to match the center post, others just tighten it down on the blade and it fits. Also if the Swee-do is anything like the Cooper, the Yaqi/IB Sloc head fits on the plate nicely. Swee-dos come up less often than Coopers do and are probably more sought after (Enrico-Case in point)...
Cooper + Yaqi Head:
You were right it is a Swee do. Looks to be in good shape too.
Finally got around to using this one. Outstanding shave!
The tell it is Sweedo is the handle. The Cooper handles have knurling between that bottom nut and collar.
Also as far as a blade goes if you have a hand nibbler or good enough paper punch you can modify a blade easy enough to use in it.
I used a dremel. Took about 2 minutes. The head holds the blade nice and tight.
This is very interesting....even though, unmentionable.
Do you have more pics?

Another option for mix n match is the Fine Marvel cap.
