    Right, so this afternoon I complete my article on shavettes, and go check the mailbox, which is overflowing with goodies, including a rare vintage Dorko shavette. The problem is, I've never seen a shavette like it. I love the way it shaves, but I've never seen one with a loading mechanism like it. Is it one of a kind? I'd love to get more like it. The handle is a regular straight razor handle, and the "blade" is cast chrome plated zinc.

    Looking great! Enjoy it!

    Edit: so what is here to feel like a dork? It looks like a great razor! No dorkiness anywhere. Unless we're all dorks over here. Hm. You've got a point... :D

    I can get addicted to using shavettes. I put mine down a while ago and have just stuck to regular straights. I've never seen a Dorko shavette before. Enjoy.

    Very cool. After seeing that, I just might be inclined to pick one up should I ever come across one in the wild.

    Bad name..good products..nice razor. Maybe they'll eventually find they're way to making a DE...

    EDIT: Just realized this was a Dorco DE, not a Dorko! Ah well, cool razor nonetheless.

    I'll be sending it off to you pretty soon for disassembly and a tiny bit of file work. I'm going to send it off for replating. when it comes back I'll send it back to you for reassembly.

    Looks very nice. The only problem is to source its blades..

    Why on earth would that be a problem? It takes standard injector blades. I can buy those locally from Sally's Beauty Supply or Bi-Mart, or from any one of hundreds of places that sell them online. I even included a picture of them in the first photo. My problem is that I would like to buy another one of these Shavettes and I can't find another one anywhere.
