    Here is one of the recent Böker offerings. Mister Kutter 7/8, extra hollow.
    I am still getting used to this grind. It is quite compact. I got the 7/8 because i have found the smaller blades with this grind to be to light.
    6/8 full hollow is my preferred size.

    Anyone acquire or use an S.K.Colling straight razor?? Made in Australia.
    The guy looks like he does very nice work, and it appears to be a family business.
    He has a facebook page called Proserpine Razor Company.:
    Also on Ebay under S.K.Colling Razors.

    I just bought another modern made razor. It was kind of an accident, because I Put a low bid on it, not expecting to win. Unknown how long it will take to arrive. Hint, it is coming from Latvia.

    If it is a Rigarazor you will be happy. Congrats whatever it is Scott.

    Now, it's time for "The Big Wait". Hopefully customs doesn't hold it up, and everything goes smoothly.

    Nope, nope, and double nope, for a beginner. I am not familiar with the quality of the steel this person uses, or how well the blade is designed, and forged. But, if it is quality steel, with correct dimensions, then it is not for a beginner. The business ends of the blade are pointy, and will slice you good, if you aren't perfect with your techniques.
    Start simple, and with rounded ends.

    Oh forsure it's not something I'd buy for me , thus my zero experience statement , I just thought I'd add to the modern razor thread of something I'd come across.

    Made in Latvia
    1/4 Hollow

    Well, it finally came in, today. Once it made it to the USA, it was a fast trip. No issues with customs.

    "RIGA" the razor.
