    Thank you very much for the information. I had read about the original concept, that’s why I got the SLOC.
    I did not know it was different than the original. What razor, if any, is like the original?
    Any help is very much appreciated. Thanks again on the tip.

    Have you ever used a non coated carbon steel blade? What blades do you like in it?

    Great looking set-up. Your razor is in terrific condition sir. And I've recently discovered Omega & the pleasures of boar. Your brush is lovely & looks like it fits nicely in the hand.

    Riding the cap is extremely easy with this vintage Cosmo Mfg Co oc. Easy and natural, but very critical, since it doesnt cut well even with a Voshkod if the angle isnt right. First shave with it today was a pure joy!

    The ABC razor sure is efficient, boy howdy! Using a steep angle makes it more smooth. There's a lot more audible feedback with the steep angle, but it doesn't grab onto every hill & valley on your face with a steep angle. Overall, a very nice shave with a 105 year old razor.

    Thank you, David! This Omega is only my second boar and it has been a terrific brush for me. It does fit nicely in the hand and I like that it's made from wood too.
