This comb and a WCS handle makes an excellent razor
I recently bought a WCS closed comb head (which I reviewed earlier) and this open comb head, together with two WCS handles. Like the closed comb, this open comb makes a great razor when paired with either of the handles I bought. Moderately aggressive and a very smooth shave, but no nicks. Basically, I have two excellent razors for less than the cost of most famous name brand razors. Both the combs and the handles are very well made. I attribute the great shave to the substantial weight of the handles. I highly recommend this product.
Better than the famous names
I just shaved with my recently purchased WCS open comb head and handle and was most pleased. The quality of the items equaled or exceeded that of the name brand razors and the shave was great. More aggressive than my open comb German made razor, but very smooth and cut and nick free. Adding the cost of the WCS head and handle together, the total price is less expensive than the "names." Very highly recommended.

excellent. it improved the functionality of the razor significantly.
Open comb razor head - very effective
I have had various open comb razors. For example the Merkur I was prepared to love turned out to be one of my mildest, least effective razors. This head went on one I bought somewhere and didn't have brand on it, but a great handle that deserved better razor head. The WCS head provides that and is an excellent complement to the handle. Fairly aggressive but not likely your face will be getting rough spots after lunch and maybe not even after happy hour! And both sides have about identical blade exposure, a characteristic I have found lacking in too many open combs.
Great shaving head!
First of all, perfect alignment every time! This is typical of WCS shaving heads but virtually unheard of at this price point from other manufacturers. Kudo's to WCS! I found this open comb head to be aggressive, but not too much so. I am a one pass shaver and use feather blades exclusively. Care must be taken when using this combination of shaving head and blade. But, using soap from The Artisan Soap Shoppe provides a slick layer of protection to the point where I don't even feel the blade - I only hear it!
