Open Comb Razors Reviews
Nice eye “candy”
WCS Natural Collection Razor 37WS, Rosewood & White Ash, Open Comb Razor came quick and was nicely packaged. Beautiful looking ash and rosewood handle, felt nice in the hand.
High quality razor !
WCS Midnight Collection Razor 110B, Black Stainless Steel, Open Comb Heavy, excellent quality, good handle grip, a very nice razor for an affordable price. This transaction was perfect, thanks !
Muhle R41 Double Edge Safety Razor, Open Comb I've been shaving my head my whole life and just used the beast for the first time. This was by far hands down without question the best shave I have EVER had. Paired with a feather razor and some Taylor of old bond street and I have never had such a great feeling therapeutic and effortless shave. Everyone is right though probably not a good ideafor a novice especially with a feather in it but I can't describe how awesome this thing really is!!!!!!
Fits the bill
WCS Classic Collection Razor 78S, Stainless Steel, Open Comb I have a Merkur open comb with a short light handle. It is a nice razor with good maneuverability. I was looking for more heft and a more aggressive razor so was interested in the Muhle R 41 but wanted to save money. I went with this model instead. It is very heavy and sturdy. I used it for the first time and am extremely pleased:no cuts and the whiskers came off easily. It appears well finished. It is a great choice for a heavy beard or for many days of growth, but I would not hesitate to use it daily. I respected its aggressiveness and let the razor's weight do all the work. A light touch is the best.
Manute Bol's Razor
WCS Midnight Collection Razor 110B, Black Stainless Steel, Open Comb This thing is huge. You have no idea until you hold one in your hand. It's really heavy as well. I really like the head as it gives a fairly aggressive shave but I don't feel like a layer of skin has been removed along with the whiskers.

Not sure if the handle will remain in the rotation, but I'm sold on the head
Great Razor, Heavier Than It Looks
WCS Midnight Collection Razor 110B, Black Stainless Steel, Open Comb I am a long winded reviewer. Short version: This is a great razor and you should buy it if you want or want to try an open comb DE razor. My only issue is that the larger handle is heavier than it looks but no so heavy that it is a problem. After about 30 shaves I am very happy with the razor and have become accustomed to the weighty handle.

I finally decided that I needed an open comb DE razor. Being the cheapskate that I am I went looking for a "reasonably priced" razor to try before I spent a lot of money on a "new" shaving technology that I didn't like. I found the Open Comb Midnight Collection Razor 110B, in black stainless steel and really like the look of it. So I dropped it in my cart and tried to order it. I must not be the only one who liked the look of this razor because it turned out to be out of stock. So I left the web site and didn't think anymore about it. I would check back in a couple of weeks and see if it was back in stock. Much to my surprise I got an email from WCS telling me that I had left something in my shopping cart and was I still interested in purchasing it. I thought it might be back in stock but it wasn't. I emailed WCS back and said I was interested in the razor and could they let me know when it came back in stock. And if possible could I get a rain check on the sale price. WCS was great about responding to me and as soon as they had the razor back in stock I got an email and surprisingly it was still on sale so I got it for a great price.

On to the review. the razor is well made and seems to be very sturdy. It is black anodized stainless steel so that is not a surprise. I was pleased with the matte black finish. I was a little bit surprised at how heavy the handle was. I shouldn't have been, Again it is stainless steel and the handle is much thicker than most "normal sized" razor handles. The weight was not a deal breaker and in fact after a month of shaving with it I have become accustomed to the size and weight of the handle. In fact I really like the weight and my old Edwin Jagger DE seems really light in comparison.

It took me a few tries to get used to an open comb razor. It is very aggressive when compared to a closed comb razor, which should be no surprise. I got a few nicks and scrapes the first week but nothing too surprising. Worst damage I did to my face was when I did a stupid thing and caught my chin with the end of the blade and managed to take a chunk out of my self. So I spent a week shaving with my old electric until I healed up enough to get back to my wet shaving routine. Since then I have been very respectful of the open comb and have had a very good experience with it.

With my old closed comb razors I would have to take 3-5 passes to get a clean BBS shave. With this open comb razor I am BBS in 2 passes. 2 very cautious and careful passes.

I would really recommend this razor to anyone interested in trying an open comb razor. If you are not interested in a weightier razor get the more standard size handle. If like me you prefer a substantial razor get this one and you will be glad you did.
Top gear!
WCS Midnight Collection Safety Razor 84B, Black Stainless Steel, Open Comb My second razor of the WCS Midnight Collection (the other being a closed comb). Best value for money. The open comb is medium aggressive, which is ok for me. Nice handle and good grip. Looks great.
Muhle R41 from 2011
Muhle R41 Double Edge Safety Razor, Open Comb I revisited the R41, with Persona Reds and tallow based soap. It does VERY well, and I compared to Merkur 38C. R41 gets closer with fewer passes. However, it takes skill. It is not for beginners, but once technique is refined; it is a GREAT close smooth shave!!
