    Beautiful country you have, Billy.
    Me, I would sit myself down, on top of that hill. Pop open a few good beers, and smoke a fine cigar. Then relax for a few hours, and soak in the site.

    Very nice, Billy. Great pose for a Scottish ninja as well.

    Kind of wonder if my Scottish roots are close to there?

    You’re a lucky man, to live in such a beautiful country Billy!

    This one on the way from my friend Zak, it’s unbranded or maybe any tang stamps are covered, but it has the looks of a upscale (pun intended) English razor from a dresser set.

    Nice one Steve. I honestly couldn't believe how long it sat there waiting to be sold. It's a really nice razor.

    Waiting on this Mint NOS Rather Rare Single Twin 6/8 J.A.HENCKELS 10072 Arriving from Japan..I have Seen a Few Threads on these Henckels..Some think they are Fraudulent Jobs when thay have Little Intel on Em..Its a Pucka Real Henckels Factory Job..:D

    Sellers Note..;)

    This 10072½ Henckels is an Extremely Rare "Single Twin" Razor, Doubly Rare because it is stamped "Solingen" and not "Zwillingswerk" (Which is appropriate since "Zwillinge" means "Twins" in German) ..The blade is in Mint Unused condition and have been Untouched since Leaving the Factory.. As Close to New as you can get for this out of Production, Vintage Henckels.. This Single Twin looks like it was Forged and Finished last week not Several Decades Ago..:eek:

    Lookin Forward to Receiving it & Zooming Her Around the Hones..:happy108:

    I couldn't pass on this one. It is a hair under 11/16th, it cost only $16 total, and cleaned up nicely. I don't know the age of it, but am willing to entertain guesses.

    This was ratty looking, that is why I bought it. I had to do a lot of cleaning, but it polished up well. no rust or pitting on the blade.
