The Pearl Open Comb head is one of my favorites since I first bought it with a Razorock Jaws hammer safety razor from Italianbarber.com
The head also came with several other razors such as Cadet and HTGAM symmetry open comb razor.
All fantastic razors loved by wet shavers all over the world. It is well known that all these famous and popular razor brands used the Pearl OC heads.
Unfortunately Pearl OC heads have also carried a reputation of having blade alignment issues or needing some time to align the blade or some OC heads being outright not aligned properly.
In spite of so many such issues the head is still very popular.
It’s a fairly aggressive razor head which I would recommend only for experienced wet shavers. A light touch with a good heavy handle and well aligned blade will give an amazing shave for any kind of beard.

The stainless steel 316L barberpole is no exception. At a time when makers like IKON, ATT and many others came out with stainless steel machined handles which were north of 50$, Joseph came out with safety razors with stainless steel handles well below the 50$ price and also put some free blades in a few !
