    Is it much different than the 106?

    Hmm. I was talking about my big fellow. I’m not positive on the differences. I have only used the one.

    The 106 was the NI from 1921-28. The Shoulder was modified/narrowed on the base plate, resulting in the 126. This was done in 1929, and all I can find is that they were only made in 1929.

    Today I took the 126 out for a spin.

    Not sure how different the 126 is from the 106. It had also been a while since I lathered up my Rudy Vey Jade & Horn 3-band. It’s my only “big” knot these days, weighing in at 25/51. Quite pleased with the entire shave. Really like the D&G Desert Oud EDP as a first time use. Need to see how it settles over the day AND if it warrants merit from Mrs. Rev579.

    very cool, probably quite rare..126 looks like the precursor to the new deluxe in 1930..

    Excellent input sir. I did not know there were designations beyond the model 102A.
    Could you please list all the numeric model nomenclatures for us? It is information not well known, and is interesting to learn.
    By the way, not only do you have some excellent examples of many razors, but you also take great photos too. Thanks for sharing.
