OCtober 11th and today is my Micromatic bumpless open comb base plate, this model was made when Gem did not have the double edge blade yet introduced to compete with Gillette and other razor manufacturing. The model was meant for the thick blade spine(85yrs ago) but it works just as well with the modern Gem version we use today.

Well, no. But it seemed appropriate because I do use that razor the most. The shave is great.
I'm cool with that. "Security-Razor-Knife" is a pretty good name, too.

Well, "Certainty-Razor-Knife" I guess in the literal translation. Certainty, security or safety -- all more or less cognate meanings.

It really looks like one I'd like to try.

O.H.

Sicherheitsrasirmesser is what it is called in the German patent (#DE64903). Here is the US patent if you're curious,
