Gibbs adjustable razor

Discussion in 'DE Razors' started by Blademonkey, Tuesday November 22, 2016.

  1. A bit late but.......this my Le Coq Adjustable. A bit of a rare and unusual razor. It has no safety bar to speak of or place for the shaving soap to escape from, so frequent rinsing is needed. Made in france in the 1930/40's it adjusts from the bottom and has five positions with no stops[​IMG][/IMG] [​IMG][/IMG] so it can be adjusted to any position. A fair blade gap like a lot of razors from this time, ( not as bad as My Leresche 77 tho !!) and a very smooth efficient razor. If I needed to pick my desert island razor this would be it !!
    I have a few French floozies including another unusual adjustable. IMG_20171214_150645.jpg IMG_20171214_150705.jpg IMG_20171214_150734.jpg

    These Gibbs are wonderful shavers, I've used my Nº17 every day since receiving it.

    I've seen some other French DE's that appear to use the same head design but without the annoying proprietary blade notches... I think I'll try to get one of those and sell the Gibbs as I dont use the adjustable feature at all ;)

  7. You might like the Olyfa then. Takes regular blades and is non adjustable
