    It seems I have struck oil. I was looking for some old shaving razor and found this beauty on local flea market. Price less than 1$.

    That's where nearly all my best buys happen - in the wild at antique or thrift stores, estate sales, and flea markets. Best prices when someone isn't even sure those cruddy, crusty old razors will sell. For the price you paid @Pavlek they sure will!

    Can I posit an obvious question... Is there any reason for this razor to exist? Is it better than a Krona in any aspect? From what I've read "More Plastic. Less Efficient" makes this a razor I find it hard to get excited about.

    To me the head geometry is identical to the krona. It's just the cool factor that makes this a desirable razor for me.

    I guess I don't equate scarce with cool. Looks like an ugly plastic design fail to me. Interesting but I wouldn't buy one even if it were cheap. But then I'm not a Toggle chaser either, ugly expensive vs ugly cheap. Now if it was a superior shaver I'd be all over it.
