    I have been shaving with the Darwin Hollow Ground Safety Razor that @twhite sent me to try out. I thought I would make a short video on how it works.

    Is the safety bar actually functional on the Darwin (unlike the Rolls)?

    The Guard Bar on the Rolls the Same as the Darwin Serves Two Functions..It Protects the Edge Getting Damaged Getting Flipped Over in the Stropping Mechanism & Serves as a Guard Bar Whilst Shaving..Personally I Dont Use the Rolls Guard Bar to Shave..:happy088:

    Yes, Andrew, what Billy says. But unlike the Rolls, the Darwin is adjustable which makes it useful as a safety bar. The Rolls is just too far away to use it as a safety bar IMHO.

    Has anyone modified a Gem SE blade to fit a Darwin razor?

    I do not think it would work. I will have to get mine out and verify. As I recall the blade is an integral part of the razor.

    I can't get one to fit. It's entirely the wrong shape. I've chipped one of my blades, which is a bummer.
