A rare or unusual DE? Please share here.

G'day Gents,


I've been collecting DE's for a while now and have purchased a number of items which I don't hear about or see much on this wonderful forum.

I cant be the only one out there who enjoys looking at all the incredible variances in DE razors around the world?! As such, I thought I'd start a thread dedicated to any unusual or rare items that you may have come across. Please add photos and a little info about the razors posted.

Thanks in advance :001_smile

I thought I'd start the ball rolling with my Blue Tip Rocket and my Gleaner 2-piece OC. If any one out there can shed some more light on these razors please do, as I would like to learn more about them. From what I can gather, the Blue-tip Rocket was the British version of the Blue-tip SS and there doesn't seem to be many about for some reason.

The Gleaner 2-piece OC was produced in Sheffield England. I find it an efficient, aggressive razor which takes a bit of time to get used to.

Is plus side more aggressive? Or is it just a name?
Apparently its more aggressive but tbh I don't really notice much if any difference , having said that I haven't used it that often.
Of note is that the blade gap is big , more blade gap on this than on my Slim set to 9

It came as part of a job lot of OC's i bought from France, a year or so ago.

The head is similar to an Old Type so it will probably shave well.

I might finish cleaning it up and use it one day!

I've got a Leresche #35. It's head looks very similar to an old type, but to me it shaves much smoother. It's a beautiful razor, in my opinion.

This is a good idea for a thread. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else has out there!

Hi,

Or Unusual without being all that Rare. Say, any variant of a Fasan Double Slant for example.

I find myself increasingly attracted to weirder and weirder razors. My RAD is not dead, it is just mutating.

Here is my latest find:

Here is one I didn't buy, but should have:

Finally, this is not mine, but I have one pretty much like it:

Wow!! Thanks for posting those. I've never seen a MIWA razor before. My RAD is starting to flare up again!!
 
Oh and this is one that no body as been able to tell me what it is... So besides it being either a "lady's razor" or a "travel razor" what is it?

I all know is that it is French. I bought it on eBay France (Paris seller who did not know what it was either)
