has anyone ever shaved with one?  I've read that it's a pretty aggressive shave.  I have the all bakelite version from wwII, I believe, that I acquired in a trade with someone I did a few years back.  

I'll post pics of mine after work tonight.

I have several open comb slants. I really like them. The Fasans that I have is the regular not the double slants. My favorite open comb slant is made by Trumpf. It's mild but really effective with my thick beard.

The Fasan all plastic double slant is second on my acquisition wish list. The first is the ATT S2.

I forgot to take photos of mine. I'll make sure I do it tonight. I believe mine is the all plastic slant. if what I've read is true with it being a very aggressive shaver, I'm going to sell it.

They are pretty aggressive, maybe too aggressive for most.  I think it would be even more aggressive with weight.  The light weight makes it manageable.

That's what I have. I like my others a little better. I seem to get a closer shave with them without being more aggressive.

When are you going to make one Joe? The stealths are amazing, but unfortunately too mild for me. I think an open comb would be just the ticket : ).

I'm designing a more aggressive one right now. I may have some pics soon.

Good for some, but not for me. Literally the only DE that I've ever used that made my face feel sad.

To be fair I've only tried it once, but I'm not sure I can bring myself to try it again.
