I recently bought a Cadet Open Comb razor off a B & B member on the B/S/T at a very reasonable price. (12 bucks) I knew nothing about this brand, I went into this deal blind. All I knew was I liked the way the razor looked and I was dying to try an open comb razor.
Anyways I received the razor today and I am absolutely blown away. For starters, it is heavy! I own several razors and the Cadet is by far the heaviest. I really like that as I prefer heavy razors. The handle is long and the inlay work on the handle is intricate and beautiful. It has an art deco design and creates a confident firm grip when held in the hand - no slippage. The chrome finish is HIGH quality - it reminds me of my Edwin Jagger. It simply shines!
I researched the razor online and they sell for around 20 bucks brand new. The razor I received looks like it has never been used. I am surprised these things sell for so little. The gentleman I bought it off, DaveL, was kind enough to include a pack of Atsra SP blades and another brand I have never heard of but am itching to try out, a Russian brand, Ladas. Yet another example of how awesome the people on this community are. I am totally stoked on this razor and am excited to shave it with it.
Anyone have experience with this brand?
Here is a picture of the razor next to a FB I also picked up on the B/S/T from another really awesome guy, HisDukeness. There's a hilarious story behind the (travellin') Fatboy which I will tell later though lmao.
