I've tried that technique and it feels far too awkward for me to get a decent shave, especially when I have to do a S-N under my chin.TraderJoe said:I have a new-issue Merkur Open Comb, and it is also small. Holding it with the tips of your fingers, at the tip of the handle (as per Kyle's suggestion) works well. This also helps with the "no pressure" thing, as holding the razor like this doesn't give you much leverage to dig into your face.
HD is just a guess on my part. I really have no idea other than it's an open comb.GeeQue said:If it is an HD, they have changed quite a bit since then. I saw one like this on ebay a few weeks ago. I don't think it was described as a particular model...only as a vintage Merkur.
