What Shavette/Barber-Razor and Blade did you use today? We like PICS

Much appreciated.
After failing to find a Weck Sextoblade in good nick, I'm planning on making a trip there soon to try one of the FROMM or Personna shapers.
Now I have some added incentive.
I couldn't find a decent Weck, either. They're usually really old, really beat, and way overpriced, imo. I bought a SS shavette off of Amazon for $8., and loaded it with a Fromm blade from Sally:

It stays wedged in fairly snug, and I load/unload using the edge of the counter. That shavette is also a larger size, and fits my hands better.

Just dropping in to say, thanks, again.
Found one of these razors at a local Sally store.

Funny thing is, I had forgot details in your description and asked the rep what type of blades it took.
She said that it was the double edge kind. So I left.
However, something told me to revisit this thread just to make sure.
So I say in the car, got the info, went back in and bought it.
To my surprise, and as you mentioned, it did come with a preloaded blade, but I assumed it would be a DE one. Sure enough.....an artist club 'SINGLE' sided blade. Haha
Product knowledge huh? Lol

It looks great in person and is actually a few grams heavier than my IBC razor, which was a surprise.
The one thing that I'm a little apprehensive about though, is that the side cap seems to be a little too easy to remove. Hopefully it won't dislodge mid-Shave.

The one at my store told me the same thing when I asked, lol. Thankfully, I've got Feather Pros already on hand. The blade that came with it was too rough for me. I was extremely impressed with the overall fit and finish.



...btw, I couldn't resist; I went back today and bought another. Lol.

*edit* - The sliding panel on the head of yours just looks like its not fully seated. The pins should line up, and it will fully seat. Both of mine are snug.

Thanks. I'll play around with it and see what happens.
Pretty decent for $40 CAD though..
Plus I have a couple on the way from Aliexpress. I believe one of them is a Kai clone.
