    I got a 7/8 WaB last week that was easily the thinnest WaB I've seen. I got a great shave off of it yesterday. Easily up there with the best of my collection.

    Does anybody here use an eastern style razor?

    And my noob question....
    Why don't they seem to be very popular?
    Pros/cons?

    For me, a kamisori just didn't work. I'm not a fan of "cross face shaving", nor do I like going WTG on one side and ATG on the other side of my face. It just doesn't work for me. I got a few decent shaves in, but nothing has come close to a Joseph Allen that a great friend of mine sent my way.

    The tips on kamisoris can be downright deadly too! Too bad, because I wanted to love it. However, as with all opinions, YMMV.

    I have used kamisori, I have issue with storage as the edge is not protected. Other than that they shave fine.

    I've used Kamisori's as well, and find them to be good shavers.
    That said, I would definitely pick a good western most days

    Paid 262 swedish kronor for that one.. so worth it


    He's got one more SSA that's coming up (when his other straight-razors auctions has ended, but you can message him and ask him what he has, he does business at the side of tradera too (atleast with me this time)
    And in total he has around 40 knives that are going up for auction.



    Björnar.. i suspect you've bought a SSA from him before, a 2,5cm tall one. Heard he sold one for 1900 to norway and instantly thought of you


    Here's the other SSA that's going up, i passed on this one, but if anyone wants it i bet he's going to take 200 for it:

    Haha, well, non the less, you've dealt with him before!

    I'm thinking the SSA i got must be worth much more than i paid for it in this condition, unused. So i think i made a great deal
