Kenyon Open Comb - Dave in KY - 07-08-2021

Thursday July 8, 2021
Razor: Vintage Kenyon SE
Blade: Personna Injector (1)
Brush: Stirling Boar
Soap: Current 1508.5 Haslinger Schafmilch
AS 1: Humphrey's Alcoholado Maravilla 70
AS 2: CHH Tobacco
Fragrance: Paco Rabanne 1 Million
Consecutive Daily Shaves - # 974


1st run with this flat handle single edge that takes an Injector blade with no issues what so ever. Not much info found on this thing. It's a mild shaver but gave a nice comfortable and close shave with attention to angle. Felt like a mild Schick Injector razor. Gonna be a long and wet day for work today. Have a fun day guys !!

Sweet razor. To bad the one on the bay is out of my price range right now. I wonder if the original blade was a hair wider making it more efficient.

I have an original blade. It wouldn't make a difference as this holds the injector blade flush against the blade stop so it's as forward as the original blade would be. Yeah, that one is nice and boxed with instructions for $64. I paid $30 and happy with mine with some character marks.

Very intriguing razor. Love it.
The one on eBay shows Patented November 26, 1906, on the box.
That is clearly wrong, as that day was a Monday and the US Patent Office has published all patents since 1846 on a Tuesday at noon.
Could it be this patent from November 20, 1906?

There is a slight similarity.

P.S.: that Kenyon on eBay is one complete set in fantastic condition. Drool.
Unfortunately, it's over $100 with shipping to the UK and import duty.
I'm out.

That's VERY similar except this snaps into place with no pivot that is specified in that patent.

What is printed on the main part under the removable part?

Looking at one on the web that says "patent applied for" so that date may be the application date.
