I just won a bid and received this razor through ebay... I looks very scary to use.

How do they shave? I'm little scared to try it.[Image: 8bdf1c674c01dd104b22b445ab020218.jpg][Image: a446a73c533dbb955fe58685278c0670.jpg][Image: 0932e23d8cecde867c4a8ef1d2f0b5c4.jpg]

That's a really cool razor, congrats on the score! It looks like it's in really good shape too for being 100+ years old. Don't be scared to try it. Just be careful with a really light touch at first and you'll get used to it. I have an old type too (not the ABC version) and it is an efficient shaver.

Shaven in the Past
A real beauty. My Single Rings (5) are my best shavers. However. Good technique with a very lite touch is a must. Do not get discouraged it may (will) take a few shaves to get the hang of it. Also for me they are blade specific. After trying a half a dozen or so the find that the Platinum Lux works best for me. So you may have to experiment in that area also. Good luck. A stellar shaver.

Congratulations and they are a bit more than mid-aggressive shavers, in my opinion.
Good luck. Happy2

I felt the blade way too much... I ended up switching to a new deluxe after turning the restroom into a horror scene

I found the ABC to be a bit rougher than the standard Old Types.

This thing is more of a straight razor than a de razor
