    A nice score for my stropping pleasure, a C-Mon, Peter J Michels #410 with a linen second. Has a horizontal milled, grooved, cut back to the leather. First one that a have that has this texture. Don’t know if it improves the leather or if it for pastes. Very cool backside. It has very low mileage, maybe NOS. Has no signs of use and came in a plastic sleeve. Gave a quick saddle soap rub and a few drops of neetsfoot oil were rubbed in. Gave a quick test drive and has a light, quick draw. A family picture with its vintage brothers

    Thank you, but this is getting out of control. Doing some spring organizing, I found another I don’t know where it came from. I am usually good remembering but have no idea when I got this. A old Illinois Russian finish with out a second. In decent shape. Some sanding and some oil is needed
