I bought a package of 100 Derby blades from (who else? ) Derby Exclusive on eBay. I was a little too fast on the trigger and didn't notice that the sort of high price was because he was including a razor. After the fact I figured what the heck, so I get a new razor!
Anyway, what arrived (besides the blades of course) was a Juma DE safety razor with missile silo doors. It seems light and flimsy, although everything seems to work OK. It even has plastic protection coverings on the shiny surfaces! After all, you don't want your $5 razor all mucked up, right?
I have a couple Merkurs - a Barberpole and a Classic, although I am considering giving the Classic away since the Barberpole has become my go to razor. Also a nifty NOS Gillette SS in the drawer, and a Gillette adjustable and Merkur Progress on the way.
Yeah, I'm a gadget freak.
All the same I am tempted to try it, but I am sort of attached to my blood supply. Anyone ever give one a shot?
