    I'm not sorry I passed on it, because now someone here can appreciate it, and post about it. I look forward to seeing what sheath design you come up with.

    :rolleyes: I was just doing some mini-themes. While I enjoy the oldies my heart still belongs to the modern erea... but since I like this Dorko so much and I am going to classify her as modern. :lyrtuy5:

    I guess today is Dorko day. Very nice

    Great shave today, from a rescue razor of mine. I had a very smooth, 2 pass shave, that left me BDBS. Zero issues. I find I am Gravitating towards The FW Engels razors, more and more. Just fantastically made. I decided to break out a bottle of a rar Shulton aftershave.

    Razor- F.W.Engel's Special. 13/16+inch. Solingen.
    Brush- RazoRock 400. WD HM Badger.
    Soap- TOBS Eton College
    Aftershave- Shulton Old Spice "Lime". Ships Lantern Decanter.

    Maybe I broke the German theme or maybe I didn’t... I honestly don’t know.

    I feel that is a Japanese blade but really not sure. More than happy to call it German to keep the theme going. :)

    Rolling rolling rolling..... some serious Soligen steel.... I agree with Tom, we will call his razor of German origin.

    Found this one after months of searching. Most were more than I wanted to pay. I was the lone bidder at $19. I did 60 x strokes on a Thuringian followed by linen and horse hide.

    At long last I can shave with my SK-3. She just returned for the razor spa, @gssixgun , Glen cleaned up the blade, the scales and put a wonderful edge on it. I have never seen a razor with this much smile have such a thin grind.
