    I found this one a few weeks back. It is totally brandless except for the post horn and the initials "U" (or "L" - I'm not sure) and "E" on the tang. I honed it on a Belgian Blue. Two passes with this razor and finish with a Rolls Razor (mostly for touch-ups on the throat). As the camera in my cellphone is kinda carp, I used a scanner.... :D

    Does anyone have an idea as for the brand of this razor?

    I thought the praise of the C V Heljestrand MK 31 wasn't based on reality, until I shaved with my just received MK31 this morning. The ebay seller put quite an edge on it, silky smooth yet keen.
