I am still a newbie, but I find I prefer the wedges to the hollow ground razors, so that could have been a factor in why I liked it so much. Any information would be greatly appreciated. I really liked the more muted sound of the wedge vs. But the razor bears many other clues as to its age: The inscriptions on the tang, the general shape of the blade, its size, the style of the tang and tail, the featured design on the face, etc as well as the scales style, pins, spacer, etc. I will try and attach a picture if I can figure out how to. I love the crazy prices people are willing to pay for them, but other than that, find them completely bland and boring. This one seemed like such an unusual thing that I couldn't pass it up.

Oh well, we live and learn! If you don't shave with it, you could probably quarter a cow in less than five seconds with that monster It will also be useful in removing that pesky oak tree in the front yard that threatens to cave in your roof every time a big storm comes But seriously, beautiful razor and as has been said the etchings make it even more unique. I do think that people think they can buy a better shave - when I mention that technique and a good honing job are so much more important, people sometimes stop listening. The blade is still relatively sharp and free of nicks. I am wondering if someone can give me some history on this razor? If no then it looks to be in good condition for it's age. Is it old, is it good quality, is it worth anything? Razors sits snug and centers nicely in the scales. It's easier to mess up the edge on a full hollow, with inexpert stropping.

Some people change their preferences to hollow ground razors as they get more experienced, others stick with wedges. There are a lot of them out there, of course, so they're easy to get and collect. I have a multitude of pics, so if this isn't enough, I can post more. However, they do command a price that's a little extreme sometimes. Is the tip of the blade chipped or is that just the lighting? The blade is still relatively sharp and free of nicks. It works good, thanks all for your posts. Also, it is possible that the weight of the choppers can disguise improper shaving technique a bit.

You know best what works for your face. Also, it is possible that the weight of the choppers can disguise improper shaving technique a bit. Is the tip of the blade chipped or is that just the lighting? There are other makers who made large wedges that are every bit as good, but not as popular on the forums. They can be fine shavers, but I, too, see nothing remarkable in them. I think this straight I found is super cool.

The majority were in the 10-15 dollar range. If you like that kind of razor, they're pretty good. What is really neat with this razor, is the box has a hand written inscription on it. You know best what works for your face. If no then it looks to be in good condition for it's age.

I think they're decent, dependable razors, but they're otherwise unremarkable. If you like that kind of razor, they're pretty good. Grind alone doesn't really say much when it's close to a wedge like that - that sort of grind is still produced today by many of the small manufacturers. I think that's because they're easier to strop, and because their weight disguises an edge that's beginning to go off. I decided for the latter. But other than that, have found the prices too tempting to keep.

One scale is brown, the other is black, both appear to be wood. If so, would you please show a photo? The prices might be tempting but I can't bring myself to part with any though I've turned down some knee buckling offers. It's easier to mess up the edge on a full hollow, with inexpert stropping. However, I have retained a few. I'd like to see it and compare to what I have.

. ? Thanks That is so cool, the fun part of collecting things is learning the history behind them. I think this straight I found is super cool. They are one of the most notorious names in straight razors so I doubt their is much question of quality. They shave well, but no more so than many other unheralded razors. Do you have any idea what this razor would be worth to buy?
