Thanks for your opinion, love your website by the way =) I have learned a lot from you guys. I begun with vintage Gillette and then fall in love with all the French razors. I want a Leresche #77, never used that one, and love the looks. Merci =pLovely addition ! It is kind of a Franken, but not so a franken. In my opinion, this is a genuine Kirby model, that Kirby sold when a customer asked for an open comb rather than Kirby's comb. This was at a time when the closed comb was still new, and surely some customer didn't like change and preferred a more aggressive / traditional option. Since Kirby razors were made by Leresche, it was easy to have access to unbranded parts that were compatible with their models.
