    Even if the blade was not in good shape (which it looks like it is), it would be a good buy just for the scales.

    Quality razor at a great price. Nice job, Jim!
    A very decent deal, to say the least.

    Now if you can score one of THESE for $13.00—then you know you're living a blessed life. :D

    One just arrived, this afternoon. It just needs a little cleaning and honing and it should sparkle. I have a couple of others, by this manufacturer, and they are very well made razors.

    Razor- "SPIKE" by Union Cutlery 5/8th near wedge. Olean NY. $4.99

    Well it is official... I have gone off the deep end. It has been 3 weeks that I received my 1st 2 straight razors, thanks to Kevin. As of this afternoon... I have 7 razors and have 2 more on the way.
    Here are the 3 I received today... all shave ready and the Dubl Duck Kevin did a little work on it for me.

    I will post the other 2 on Monday as I had them shipped to my office, to avoid the prying eyes of my lovely wife.

    Today's catch was a nicely preserved razor from Union Cutlery. It only needs a little cleaning, and some stone work.

    Razor- "Spike" Union Cutlery. Olean NY.

    A buddy asked me if I still shaved with straight razors.
    I said sure.
    Then he said I found this in an old box of junk and thought you might like it. He would not take any money for it.

    That's the best way to acquire a razor, what a good friend.
