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!
Very comfortable and nice and clean on the skin
WCS Open Comb Head
First time using an open comb head; the quality and value is definitely there as these are very nice pieces. The shave was definitely more aggressive than the closed comb head, but very manageable. My only reason for giving the rating 3 stars is simply due to the design; it does not "rinse" away the shavings very well in contrast to the WCS closed comb head (which has a relief groove on each side to aid in the washing away of the shavings).
