Its Valobra Tallow Soap...
thank you Billy,most grateful..
I just bought a pair of shave ready C-MON razors on EBay. One is a Peter J Michels/Brooklyn and I bought it because I was born there.
very cool sir,nice razors..
Thanks, Gary! They certainly are cool. Every straight in my den has either black, cream or white scales, save one. I just wanted to add some color to my den. Lol!
Another lost lonely razor showed up to my door.
Just in, from France. The blade is a little chippy, and has a little corrosion, but it looks repairable. In measuring this razor, it was almost a 7/8th blade. Puma is generous with their steel.
Another, from France today. It is supposed to be a 5/8th, but, again, Puma is very generous with their measurements, and steel. This one looks to need very little work. Also, looks like it hardly touched a hone. Both the razors obtained today, were bough for a fraction of what it would cost, in the USA.
These are my first PUMA razors. Hope they live up to their reputation.
Very nice acquisitions Scott. Really love that last one!
I keep coming back to look at those scales... mesmerizing!!!
Thank you! Agree though the scales really jump out for me.
That middle razor looks factory fresh. Great pair of razors.
Thanks! I should receive them sometime this week. I can't believe that I won these razors on EBay for such a deal.
Thanks. The smaller one will require a small amount of work, to bring back to life, mostly on the backside.
I've never tried a Puma before.
Hopefully i can get them to the stones, soon, and give them both a try.
Pumas are Nice Shavers Scott..The Thing I Like about Em is the Build Quality..They are Built to Last a Lifetime..I Have 3 Of Em..
Waiting on a Lafayette from USA and a Gold Ring from UK.,.I just liked the scales on the GR ^_^
You’ll like the Pumas Scott, I have one like the second, it’s a heavier grind. The first one is probably hollow like the Filarmonica it looks like.
I have this poor thing on the way, cracked blade so no one would bid on it, but the scales are nice....
Yes, the Ivory scales are nice, but, angling the heal end would eliminate the crack, and give it a sleek Japanese look. That would save the entire razor.
