    Thank you Hans, I was watching that one Hans, I expected 1,500 US, so I wasn’t far off. As far as I can tell, the pair of No 140s that I have are the same razor, just branded differently for different markets maybe. CVH did make a lot of the same model(s) with different stampings. My 140s have been re-scaled in ivory and black horn, but the one in ivory is 15/16 or so, the one in black horn has a small bit of wear on it but is still 7/8, both are full hollow. Look for them out of Japan or South America. The last one that I saw for sale was out of South America but the condition was too poor for me to consider.

    Bruno Blades Alien, soap was MdC fougere lathered with an Omega 49, and Myrsol Agua Blasamica finished up a shave on the wild side, lol.

    Here are the No 140s. The one in ivory scales is actually wider than the black-scaled one, the camera angle changes the appearance of width.
