    I'd still like to know the real reason behind why Feather makes those blades. I've read before that the reason Feather makes them is because of a Japanese made razor cloned from the AutoStrop razors. I wonder if end of production AutoStrop razors were exported to Japan after WWII by Gillette. Then the Japanese market liked using them. More research to do...

    So it seems, Gary, if you are aware of a source for another nickel plated VC3, I’d be grateful!

    Thank you Joe. I have been receiving wonderful shaves with this razor every time it comes up in the rotation. It will have another opportunity tomorrow as a result of my Gemini theme shaves.
