The Guard is actually classified as a pivoting head SE.
https://sharpologist.com/2018/07/single-blade-razors-pivot.html
The Guard is not referred to as an SE in that article.
Also the article states:
"The Leaf razor is probably the closest thing to a cartridge razor in this article–"

And then writes about the Guard which is a single blade cartridge razor and the article admits as much:
"Gillette uses the cartridge in their new Treo razor,"
And
"The Guard uses a proprietary cartridge with a single blade."

Gillette is not pushing the Treo very hard. As a matter of fact I've never seen one in a Walmart (largest Gillette vendor in the USA). I believe it's special order from their website only:

https://gillettetreo.com/

The Guard is the best single blade disposable razor extant IMO. Brilliant simplicity.

Further to my comments above......I bought some guard blades recently to use while travelling. Plastic has become an issue in our house and there is less to throw away!
