These are questions for anyone using the Cadet open comb razor. For Christmas I received a Cadet TP26 Open Comb razor. When I loaded it with a new Astra SP blade I noticed that the blade exposure was uneven on both sides of the cap. In other words the exposure on each side was uneven end to end. Resetting the cap made no difference. I tried two other brands of blades with the same results. A little bit of fiddling resulted in getting the exposure even from end to end on each side but a greater amount of blade would then be exposed on one side. This results in a greater gap between the blade's edge and the teeth on one side. In no attempt could I get the blade 'square' and equally exposed. I contacted the seller who requested that I return the razor for inspection. Before I slap a stamp on its butt and fling it into the big blue box on the corner I'd like some input from other Cadet owners:
Has anyone else experienced a problem like this with their Cadet OC?
If so, did you find a way to resolve it without returning the razor?
How much of a problem would using it as is create in terms of blood and burn?
The retailer, who has a very good reputation, responded promptly to a weekend email and I have every reason to believe he will resolve the issue to my satisfaction if it is a valid objection to the razor. If not, I see no reason to put him to the trouble so any input would be welcome.
