Is a Rolls Razor Consider a Safety Razor, or a Suedo Straight??
So I was out antiquing this past weekend, and found a cased Rolls Razor for $12.50. Strop, and hone are in great shape. The included blade had a few nicks in it, and is not presently shavable (it's being sent off to be honed).
Decided if one Rolls is good, then two is even better, and won a second one off of E-Bay.
Then I bought an extra blade from Dr. Irving.
So anyway, I am greatly looking forward to figuring out the proper usage of a Rolls Razor.
So my question, is a Rolls Razor a safety razor, or a Suedo Straight? It's often called a "straight razor on a stick".
How much difference does the "safety bar" make in reducing cuts?
I may at one point try a straight, but thought the Rolls was a nice middle ground/ stepping stone towards a straight.
I played around with a Dovo Shavette, and a Fromm Hair Shaper with less than desirable results; I have given up on Shavette's.
I also frequently shave with my Gem, and Injector, along with using DE razors most of the time.
