    Seconded.


    So does the queen of the plain-jane, reliable, inexpensive American shavers deserve a razor club? I think so.

    Here are my three excellent Genco razors. Sorry about the blurry pic.


    1. Genco Registered.
    2. Genco Master Barber.
    3. Genco Army & Navy.

    I got each of them for less than $10, shipped.


    Here's my, probably incomplete, list of Genco models:

    Army & Navy
    B-2?
    Blue Steel
    De Roma
    Easy Aces
    Expert
    Fluid Steel
    Forgemark
    Gold Seal
    Grant
    Head Barber
    Heavy
    Henry's Triumph
    Henry's X
    Henry's XX
    Master Barber
    Master Barber Jr.
    Nubak
    Old Dutch
    President
    Red Cross
    Registered
    Safedge
    Seneca Chief
    Tiger
    Vanadium
    Washington
    Wedge

    I hope to one day have a complete collection, but as a bit of a cheapskate, I'm not holding my breath.

    Here is a recycled picture of my Genco De Roma. It is a cute little razor, very hollow, a very sweet shaver. Gencos rock!

    Here's a few of my Genco's. They are both "Henry's Triumph".

    The little one is about 5/8 and the big-un is about 6/8. I saved the gold wash on the little guy, but the big dude didn't fare so well.

    They both shave equally well, but I tend to use the larger square point more, since I am reluctant to wear off the gold wash.

    The Genco plant in Geneva was the largest in the world at one time making several thousand razors a day! Read more here:
