Where's my Dislike button?
But still it is a closed comb. Now given what you are bringing out into the discussion it would fit closer to the Hybrid Combs in performance (i.e. R41., Barbasols) than a true Closed Comb.
The MicroMatic Open Comb is an SE that is a true Open Comb...
... and the magazine Schick that I showed earlier.
Those are great open combs! I like mine a lot.
Wait a minute ...
No Variation month……...the same razor for 30 days! I guarantee after 1 month using the same razor, you'll become quite familiar with the pros & cons of that particular shaving item.
Remember 30 DAYS have November!!!
I'm Down for that.
Sounds like the 30 day rule. But, which razor? Maybe I should get a new one!
Indeed it tis. however, not just for Newbies in November
All this still does not answer what of December?
I think you were on target with DE for DEcember!
AUgust = Gold Plated Razors (Gold is a chemical element with symbol Au and atomic number 79. )
SEptember = SE Razor
OCtober = Open Comb Razor
NOvember = No Change Month
DEcember = DE Razor
Very Nice Razor, sure wish I had a nice box with mine. The Cooper Is a great razor especially with a couple days growth. The OC is nice but not too aggressive. Great find.
Gillette Old Types are easily my favourite DE razors (of any ilk comb-wise), and the New Improved and NEW DeLuxe razors are definitely worthy of an honourable mention in my book.
No Variation NOVember is cute enough but I should think that one would also want to use just the one blade all month as well. Maybe even just one soap, brush, AS, etc. etc. ...
I'm up for that. I was going to try it anyway with a couple of stipulations.
Same razor. I was going to give one of my milder razors like my DE89 a full month now that my technique is hopefully better.
Same brand and type of blade, not same exact blade. I just bought 100 Astras, so i should be good there.
If i run out of soap, i get to move to the next puck in line, not go out and buy another puck of the same type. I'll at least try to stick with same brand though. I have 3 conk pucks left.
Same rules for PSO as soap.
Here are my candidates for Open Comb October.
Since no real hard rules have been established yet (other than the same razor) for 'No Mese Variazione' (No Variation month), I figure participants have some leeway.
I plan on ONE razor, maybe 4 soaps (1 a week), 1 brush…..
I also have a lather catcher and a couple of Valets. I have never shaved with these razors yet.
I'm always amazed that my oldest razor gives me some of my best shaves.
today I used my 1906 Gillette New Standard.
one of my oldest anyway
