“Testina Gentile” translates to “gentle head” in English. This closed-comb razor is less aggressive than open comb models but still manages to produce an efficient shave. The higher than normal “flex” it creates on the razor blade itself creates a steeper blade angle. The “closed comb” design paired with the angle of the blade itself, helps it shave closely, yet gently, and with an ultra-smooth glide.
This handle has deep, vertical, “column-style” knurling. This is a short handle razor at 3.14″. Handle length is largely a matter of preference. Shorter handles are more traditional. Almost all vintage razors had a shorter handle that today’s cartridge razors, like the Gillette Fusion.
This is a 3-piece razor meaning that there is a head, plate, and handle. The razor sits between the head and plate and both screw into the handle, securing the razor blade to the handle.
