Open comb straight razor

Stumbled across an oddity on the web today – an open comb straight razor, or possible shavette.

I guess the idea was to make a safer straight, but I don’t know enough about straights to say if it’s a good idea, a bad idea, or a pointless idea. Or it may be for trimming hair… but neither possibility explains the odd comb on the back of the blade.
