    Thanks, Karl! I’m really looking forward to that first shave! Of course, I have to act properly surprised on my birthday.

    Three of them polished and cleaned, they are greased with Ballistol Oil waiting for the Stones.[​IMG]

    You scored big, my friend! A Bengall and Soderen in addition to the five other razors qualifies as a haul. You might even be able to sell one and recoup your investment!

    Just got this kamisori two days ago.

    Handle is broken but I think the names on the sides are Yasuki and Kikusui. Getting an edge on it slowly. It is a little stubborn but getting there.

    Should be a fun change of pace razor.
    Happy hunting.

    Latest acquisition, CVH MK No.30 with Ivory scales. Really not the best picture from the seller on the auction site. Perhaps a little like the Pig in the sack, but for $30 it’s a bargain only for the scales.

    Nice grab Hans! :eatdrink047:
    At least from that side, those scales look in beautiful condition.

    It is a mismatched set as Red Imps were stamped by three trademarks over time that I remember: Morris, Case and Ludo. I’ve also read that Ludo was a trademark of Morris and some Morris’ were stamped Made the the USA by Case, so maybe they all tie back to Case. :)

    I’ve owned a 132 and it was a near wedge grind and yours looks to have minimal hone wear, so I think you found a winner.

    The scales on these blades sometimes shrink and the blade tip hits the wedge, but I always liked the design of the Red Imp logo.
    Nice find!

    Awesome thanks! I was trying to find information but i guess the JA Henkels was the confusing part. How can i tell if it has hone ware? IMG_0415.jpg

    The upper edge near the spine (yellow) looks crisp and not worn.

    When that edge looks worn or uneven, I stay away.
    What name does it have on the reverse side of the tang, opposite the Red Imp trademark?
