I am in Scotland on Business at the moment and found a couple blades made by a local that I am interested in and need some of your thoughts. Aside from the blade itself, this is my first trip to Scotland and I am from Scottish descent so there is a bit of a souvenir factor for me as well. Description send from the seller: I hand make them by stock removal. Epoch Straight Razors. I have two available, one just under 11/8 which is 1095 steel sporting a hamon at £350 and another, 8/8 01 tool steel at £250.
