Well, First new razor in many moons and an open comb at that. Been 10 or so years since I have used an OC. This is the Cadet head and a great little razor. More aggressive than the EJ89 but not crazy like a Slant or R41 and built as well as any of those. Of course it won't replace the Feather AS as a daily driver but with a couple of days growth it's really a great little number and $20 no less.
