    West Coast Shaving is coming out with 3 new safety razor heads, each of which uses the same top cap design. Our goal was simple: To make the best budget razor head - period. The razors were designed by Charcoal Goods exclusively for WCS. Like the GEM razors of old, the top cap has a pre-defined "sweet spot" to help guide new shavers to the right angle.

    Our open comb razor melds the efficiency of our Brawny base plate with the smoothness of our Lithe version.

    WCS is all about giving you choices to hone in on the shave that is just right for you. Pair this safety razor head with any number of handles to create your perfect grooming tool. Check out the other heads coming soon, Brawny & Lithe. With WCS, premium is standard.

good plates. the toothsome is what I would call mid-range in agressiveness, the open comb is the real deal and you must handle with care but you will get a super close shave. . I read where some people don't like the fit and finish but that is not my experience. The shave I receive from these is very good.

Smooth shave. Poor alignment

Enjoyed the shave after several minutes of aligning the blade. It was the 2nd headcap they sent me

Loose tolerance, not worth it.

When I first got this razor head I thought I liked it. The more I use it the more I realize I can't get consistent shaves. I thought it was my technique. I tried different blades. I focused of improving my lather. I finally realized the blade has so much play it's not even on both sides. Every time you put a new blade it lines up differently and it's near impossible to get it centred. If you want to try something different for cheap and don't mind fiddling with the blade tolerance this could be for you. Imo it's not worth it and may give first time open comb shavers the wrong impression.

The Ultimate Affordable Razor Head Serie

To begin with, I purchased the Lithe M.P.S (multi-plate system), and I effin love it! Wel done, in terms of both design, tolerances, and execution. I purchased a Vikings Blade adjustable, and was horrified by the shoddy mechanics and blade alignment issues. This M.P.S. absolutely whoops that razor’s buttocks. (And for about $20 less, with your 87S stainless steel razor handle.) After trying each of the base plates with the lithe head cap, I can attest to their functionality. I found that diagonal, short strokes work best for the moustache area. Furthermore, if one disregards the prearranged top cap angle, and use it as a normal DE razor, one gets an additional adjustment level. For instance, the mild plate, the Lithe, goes from about a 3, (on a Gillette Slim Adjustable) to a 4, merely by using it like a regular safety razor.

Not So Smooth

I was eager to try this design but it is not as smooth as my 1930's Gillette Short Comb NEW head. It does give average aggression shave but a little tough to hold a smooth angle stroke. This is my first initial impression and I will continue to work it into my rotation from time to time ...........
