    I haven't had my Schone out in quite a while. Lately I've been rotating through a number of razors to revisit how they perform, in particular with some of the blades I now have.

    A great, medium efficiency razor capable of close, smooth shaves, made of nickel plated brass and highly affordable. I got infatuated with recent stainless steel purchases and needed to be reminded what a performer the classically designed Schone OC is.

    Don't those two (three?) pieces of metal look beautiful together! Thank you for showing that.

    Thanks Gary. I wish I knew more about it. It's the first 2-piece Merkur open comb I've ever seen. I'm hoping it's a little more aggressive than their 15c.

    i know very little about old merkur razors.i have a 34c and an open come 1904/6..but rarely use them at present..

    The 34c is well liked. similar to the DE89. The 1904 oc has the same head as the 15c -- mild. and blade alignment is fussy.
