    That was my preference but I forgot I gave my last one away. Oh well, that Maggards HD clone head is pretty inexpensive and I still have the other side.

    I see that there are several of us here that have tried and like razors without safety bars. It’s a shame that there are none on the market and we’re left to chopping up vintage razors instead.

    Cut off the guards on my Russian mystery razor and gave it a shot. It felt less dangerous without the guards. I remember this razor got shelved because of how terrible it shaved. It may become one of my favorites now.

    Lathered up some Route 66 lumberjack that I found at the back of my drawer with my synthetic brush, loaded up a fresh Silver Star blade ( had to keep Russia in the Russian razor) and away I go.

    First pass was face WTG and neck sideways to the grain scything. No weepers, no hair, no discomfort. Second pass was ATG on the face and the opposite across the grain on the neck with scything. Still good but 2 weepers in my trouble spots. One on a mole that catches fresh blades and one on my chin where I usually wear a goatee and am out of practice. Rinsed off and gave it a feel and it's pretty good. I touched up with some water only buffing and got somewhere between the baby and military standard. A splash of Thayer's lavender to finish and the deed is done.

    For your next challenge can you just glue the blade to a popsicle stick?

    I would be very interested to see how that goes.

    You must not remember my beer can kamasori. It worked but it got dull after a stroke or 2 being aluminium.

    If I had a popsicle stick I probably would try it. Couldn't be any worse than a full hollow straight.

    Quite a few already did it. I think they stapled the DE on a popsicle stick. @Bama Samurai is the only one I remember right off.

    I'm going to pretend I didn't learn that. Remaining blissfully ignorant may be a survival strategy.

    Then I got the deluxe model with display stand that was inspired by the iconic Gillette razor.

    It's an over rated stunt.

    It's true. There were six others who did it too.

    Been done multiple times. I suggest sandwich packing a DE blade between two sticks.

    Or just learn Shavette.
