    Hey @oscar11 let us know how you like that Cape 650. I’ve been resisting, but it reminds me very much of a Dovo Bismarck without the thumb notch.

    I have a beat up Cape650 I use to test stones. Amazing razor. The way it's balanced, the length, the width. For me it's the perfect razor.
    Now that I am thinking about it, maybe I need a NOS one :)

    I was afraid that you’d say that.

    I have a beater too, but it’s at about 11/16 and still has a chip in it. I like shorter razors in spite of liking Filly 14s, lol.

    I couldn't pass this one up. I know nothing about the make but just liked the look of the blade (13/16").
