Subtle differences from the first. Competitive shave report to follow.
That’s a beauty Bill - pairs are nice!
From the guy with more pairs than most pair trees!
Nice. How is it? I finally tried my first French razor and so far I am very happy with it.
Saw this one on the auctions and couldn't resist.
Never heard of the brand but at 8/8, couldn't be bad right.
Nice looking razor. It appears to be post WWII.
Thank you. Yeah definitely post WWII. Nice and thin grind, as far as I can see it's pretty symmetrical.
I realize I haven't been around much, lately. But I have acquired two really interesting razors. Here's the first unboxing, called "Bone Mosaic" by Victor Creazzi. It's a SanMai pattern-welded design with a piece of 1095 steel forged welded for the edge. It a bellied full hollow ground, and an amazing shaver. Really like it!
Here is the second razor, a stub tail full wedge circa 1810-1815 Sheffield cast steel blade imported by Ellis and Allan, a Va Mercantile firm in existence from 1800-1824. Just a side note, John Allan one of the two partners was Edgar Allan Poe's stepfather. Glen Mercurio (@gssixgun) took the NVOS (new very old stock) naked blade (8/8), dressed it in period bone scales, brass pins, custom beehive brass washers, an amber wedge, and honed it to perfection. It's a great shaver although it weight (255 grams) and size (7" closed from end of scales to end of tang) is unusual for a stubtail of that era (please correct me if I'm mistaken in this). Here it is:
Beauties Jeff, I especially like the Ellis and Allan.
Thanks, Steve! It was much larger than I was used to, but I've been shaving with it over a week, and finally got the hang of it. The Victor Creazzi razor is also a great shaver.
Congrats Jeff! That Bone Mosaic is such a beautiful look and his grinding is impressive.
Thanks, Tom! The shave is awesome!
Those are beautiful razors. There’s something about the Ellis and Allan blade that is really calling to me
Thanks, Karl! It's unusually large for a Sheffield stubtail of that era.

I have not found any Korean razors, I do not think any were made in South Korea. There were some razors made in North Korea but I have not added one to the collection yet.
