    Thank you Ron. Almost all LeCoqs are part zamak and quality can vary from razor to razor, but all are silly effective.
    The one to the left is light like an aluminum Tech, but is chrome plated, have no clue what it's actually made of. The other one is built like a tank.

    Austrian MIWA from the 1910s. Not the most ergonomic design, but is drop dead gorgeous. Have to figure out how to adapt a modern blade.

    Handle is a spring loaded pair of tongs, this clamps the head together with the blade.
    Blade is hinged in the middle, but DE blades can be used with a bit of hacking.

    Thank you. I think I found this exact set a few years ago, but back then had to pass on it.

    Course we'd have to include my 1957 Red Tip-my birthyear. If that ain't vintage, I must not be either :cool:
