As part of my ↪'lending library' I'm offering a Durham Duplex razor. This piece of shaving history is a straight style razor that takes double edged blades. This allows for rather unusual shaving manoeuvres. You can use both sides of the head in one movement. If your face can take it, you can shave WTG and ATG in a single pass. The original blades were stroppable and the razor comes with a stropping handle. You can use the stropping handle for shaving 'kamisori' style. That's my favourite way of using this razor. A word of warning (I don't want to put anyone off though): This is not a beginner's razor. You should know about NO PRESSURE and be able to figure out the best shaving angle for you. This is not a mild razor and you will probably nick yourself while trying to figure it out. It is a lot of fun though to shave with this 'double edged straight', just like grandad or his father. One problem with Durham Duplex razors is the availability of blades. Most available blades that fit this razor are sold as 'dog dresser' blades and are among the worst blades you can possibly put to your face. Trust me, I've tried. The only blades worth trying in this razor are the 'Personna pathology blades'. I have sourced some of them and I will include one blade for you to try. Normal pass around rules apply: The razor is your responsibility from the moment you receive it until the next person receives it. You break it, you buy it. Make sure it is thoroughly clean and shave ready when you pass it on or return it to me. Use at least ‘signed for’ delivery. Enjoy the shave and let us know what you think. Postage: TBC - probably £2.30 If you're interested, post in this thread or send a PM to @sɐǝɹpu∀.
