Single edge razors

Just found these SE's packed away; Gem Gbar, Light Weight, Micromatic, and 1912. There are several more including one with an open comb micromatic/flat tto. Interesting razors that a lot of people think are the best razor and much superior to the DE's.

Nice find. I've got three of the four pictured razors. Of those, the 1912 gives me the closest shave.

SEs offer surprisingly good shaves

I personally find you need to go to a somewhat older Lather Catcher style to really enjoy a single edge shave. These new fangled razors do hold the blade, but in my opinion something got lost along the way beginning around the 1930s. YMMV of course!
