    A big German blade sucked me in again...
    15/16” Revisor
    Gold & the spine work are beautiful.
    Should be fun to sharpen up and go.
    Happy hunting.

    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. :happy088:

    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.:happy093:

    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 :happy036:



    Happy shaving - Karl

    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!
