    now that thing looks to be a mystery in itself, wonder if it really existed or was just there to match into the name, and the album title "razors edge" ? or if all that even exists at all lmao maybe someone was just having fun and made it all up
    Well, les Double Six ( Doble Six of Paris) a French Vocal jazz group in made up by Mimi perrin in1959, They were popular in the eaelry 60's. The name of grop was from the way they recorded by using overdubbing techniques to get 12 part singing. Many different members were involved in the group as they recorded. I guess that the razor analogy was from Record labels promotions, so they found the Double Six Razor ad and used it as a popular promo to advertise teh band of the same name.

    Here is another from my collection. It is an Olaf Rasmussen surgical prep shaver. It appears to be all stainless.







    On four of the six sides the handle is engraved as follows: Olaf Rasmussen Products, PATT. NO. 2455877 2549130, Port Clinton, O. U.S.A., and SURGICAL PREP SHAVER.

    The razor weighs 51 grams.

    It is a very smooth shaver. Not overly aggressive but very efficient.

    Brian,
    just got a new mystery slant cleaned up this weekend and was puzzling over the interesting shape of the head. Now I see yours and they are identical. Will try and post pics here for comparison.

    Alex, do you know what type of sheet metal? The cap is slightly magnetic, possibly from the screw, but the guard is not. Neither appear to be plated. The guard does appear to have been stamped as the tool marks are still visible. The cap looks as if it was stamped, the bevels were then ground, and the top was polished. Thanks again for the date info.

    Default Le Dauphin

    This is a pretty little French razor called "Le Dauphin". Had a thread on it earlier in which Moshulu found some early correspondence which put the manufacture of this razor in Grenoble by a company called E. Fay-Chatelard:

    http://badgerandblade.com/vb/showthr...ase-Le-Dauphin

    The razor is attractive, but not amongst my best shavers.

    I'll post pics of my others when I get a chance. It's tough finding them at a good price. So far, I'm about 50/50 on my purchases. For every good one, I get a disappointment. Still, the hunt is fun in itself. Without counting, I think I've got about 7 French DE's (with an 8th on the way...a Gardette) that are in my rotation.
