I thought I had a 1912 Single edge razor. Two in fact. One is a Ever Ready 1912, the other a Star 1912. I had heard great things about this razor so I was disappointed to find the performance to be quite average. I bought myself a Minute Man not because I wanted another 1912 but because I really liked the holder. Too my suprise the accompanying razor to the minute man was very different to my 1912s. The head is very smaller, it is much easier to maneuver and gives a brillant shave. It's like a completely different razor to my other too. In this picture the Gem is in the middle, the Ever Ready on the left and the Star on the right. So which razor is the real 1912?
