The Symmetry Open Comb Safety Razor
The Symmetry is a perfectly balanced, hefty, classic, open comb razor; beautifully chromed, engraved and laser etched!
The handle is knurled to my specs, a standard that may be slightly higher than most due to the fact that I am a shower shaver! You will enjoy The Symmetry for many years to come.

Review by Jason Young
The Symmetry open comb razor:
First off, let's talk about looks, this thing is beautifully chromed, and the logo is awesome. The knurling on this thing is great, right up there with the ikon bulldog. I love it, and it stands out among all my other razors.
Blade loading was a breeze with no issues. It seated right where it is meant to, and took no adjusting to ensure equal exposure on both sides.
This razor is very efficient without being overly aggressive. It is no problem to find the proper angle and feels great on the face. The only other open comb I have to compare it to is the 2013 R41, it is less aggressive than the R41, but in a great way. This seems like a razor you could use everyday without worrying about irritating your skin.
This razor is nice and hefty, and has great balance. It makes keeping the correct pressure almost effortless. I didn't weigh it, but it is almost identical to a DE89 on a bulldog handle.
And finally, cost:
At $29.99, this thing is a steal. It looks just as good, if not better than some of my more expensive razors. Douglas Smythe has knocked it out the park! If you want a razor that stands apart from all the others in your collection, you should pick this one up. It looks great and shaves even better.
