Interesting. I had never seen that before. I did add it to my Amazon wish list. ;)

Kind of reminds me of the Weishi/VdH/MicroTouch razor but with better quality materials
 
It does. Strangely enough, this is the razor I had in mind. It was on the manufacturer's website. But only the chrome and black version was,available on Amazon at the time, so that's what I ordered.

However, they must have just started sending the other versions to Amazon. My guess is that the warehouse workers were probably not away of the other versions. When I received my razor, it was the bronze brass version that I wanted in the first place.

I think that most of the TTO razors were copied from and resemble the original Gillette Speed Safe.

As I understand it, this razor is more efficient and has more of a blade feel than the Weishi. I have thought it looks like a Weishi myself.

I have a $14 Wilkinson Sword TTO and it is surprising well built and shaves real close, similar to the Seki City.

I'm curious. Why buy a modern TTO when there are millions of unemployed Super Speeds out there?

Metallic nickel and some nickel compounds
are already designated as carcinogenic substances under Proposition 65.

Is that right? I guess California needs to ban these then, just to be safe. 😄😄😄

I love the way you put that. Highlights one more reason why so many people are moving away from there.
