    Just got my Yaqi Mellon head in today, Yaqi makes some of these old razors & brings them back to life in present times with some improved modifications possibly. This razor was designed by Mr Mellon back in the 1930's but only had a short life span of a few years with different variants but it works well with the 2017 Yaqi Zamac Version1 and now Version 2 SS 316 Mellon head that is a little more aggressive with blade tabs covered. These are on the Trend setting sale also at Ali_express and make sure you grab the Ali coupon and combined save a little more if interested in these fine razors.

    I know its a Simpson, but I believe it's an early X2 Commodore. I already have one, but this is a much darker caramel.

    I don't know whether it's the precursor of the Commodore, but it's the closest I could find.

    A bit of an impulse purchase, as I do like the Schick Super Ultrex twin blade. A card of disposable Schick Super 11 with fixed Ultrex blade on light plastic handle.
    Actually Shaved with one just now- an amazingly good finish.
