    A local dutch second hand site. The seller was actually from belgium. I was expecting 12 herders. But he just sent what he had.

    So I got a friodur 14 and a travel razor

    Sometimes people find stuff in house clearences and just want to sell it.

    The big ERN (8/8) I showed a few posts ago was picked up by somebody at a dump site he worked at. He saved it, but now getting older had his neighbour selling stuff to clear the house. That is how it got to me.

    But I have now to stop buying stuff and up my tempo restoring it. In the end my stuff will go the same way. That is the circle of life :). I will keep some herder nos. In the end my son might get interested.

    That's a beauty.
    One day, I will bite the bullet, and purchase a NOS Fili 14 Sub Cero, and a nice Koraat.

    You are right.
    It seems someone around here is buying up all the nice Filarmonica razors, and JNATS.
    Hmmmmmm, I wonder who that could be?? :angry019:

    What happened with these razors, after Glen ( @gssixgun ) honed them??
    How were the edges??

    Scott:
    My son ended up rescaling both and retempering the blades in his forge. Both could then hold an edge, but the steel still doesn’t hold one well. My son melted both blades using Benjamin Huntsman’s crucible technique. Things are still in process.

    Sorry to hear that. I was.afraid that might happen. What did Glen have to say??
    Hopefully it will all work out.
