Beautiful shapes on those razors. Congrats.
A big German blade sucked me in again...
Gold & the spine work are beautiful.
Should be fun to sharpen up and go.
Beautifull razor. Congrats.
About a month ago I bought a new Rigarazor 8/8 and have been waiting patiently for it’s arrival from Latvia. Evidently Covid has been slowing international shipments dramatically and I expect to be waiting much longer. I really wanted a big blade and the reputation and looks of the Riga made it an easy choice.
But, while waiting this bad boy showed up and I put in an offer that I did not expect would be accepted. It’s a 9/8 “The Celebrated Hollow Ground - For Barber’s Use Wade & Butcher.” Lo and behold the seller said, “yes.” Which made me wonder - did I miss something? Well, it arrived today. While it’s a heavily restored mirror finish the engraving is all intact and there are no signs of any issues. It’s a monster. I can’t wait to use it.
Normally I’d have had it delivered directly to @gssixgun for a honing but I sent it to my home to be sure I hadn’t overlooked anything. Now, I’ll just have to be patient as it’s going off to Idaho tomorrow. Can’t wait - super excited
Happy shaving - Karl
Fantastic razor @Karl G ! I predict that you'll love it.
She is a serious pimp stick, nice.
Sweeeet! I can verify international ships are much slower now due to Covid.
Thank you Keith. I would have to agree... might have to dig up that thread.
Great blade Karl! I saw that pop up and quickly vanish... you are fast! Nice work!
