    That's quite a contraption.

    I hope they are not using Santa as an example for the way the razor works.

    Never used one but that sure appeals to me. Love unusual contraption and can see why you would be happy. Be sure and post your experience shaving with it.

    Hope you can find blades that work in it. Current production I mean. Interesting piece.

    If it uses the same single-edge, un-reinforced blade as the Valet and Feather SE razors, they're available here:

    5 Feather Single Edge Blades

    Note that these are _not_ the same as the GEM blades, which have a reinforced back edge.

    Or it may use something else altogether . . .

    I've had one of those. It doesn't use any standard replaceable blade.

    The blades it uses are slightly hollowed wedge blades that are shorter than all the other SE blades. I have successfully honed several for my own use, but it was a real pain to do. Once they're honed, they do a pretty decent job.

    It's more like a straight conversion to a safety than a bona-fide safety.

    Anyway, I hope you're able to hone; and it's going to be a bit of work before it's shave-ready.
