I think the Filly looks amazing. Nice work, mainaman!
Here are my razors that I use.
My great grandfather was the president of the barbers union and he ran a barber shop here in Seattle at Pikes Place Market in the 20's to the late 50's. The green razor is the one he used every day and the strops they are laying on are also the ones he used in his shop.
Very cool, Drew!
Good job on the Filarmonica, Stefan! You are talented.
This is my second western Iwasaki Tamahagane.
Rescaled because the original scales were busted. Made the new set from Ivory paper micarta and transferred the Tamahagane kanji sticker.
Mirror polished by hand with 1k and 2k WA powders, and etched in lemon juice to show the hamon.

I've been straight shaving for a while now. My favorite razor is my Gens # 14 Razor. I'm having trouble posting pictures, but I think you could see it by googl image search for "gens 14 razor": it has black inliad scales, and a nice goldwash bullfighting scene on the hollow. It shaves like a dream.
Here's my newest, and very likely last straight razor. Surprisingly I have zero acquisition disorder when it comes to razors. Brushes, yes. Soaps, sort of. Razors...surprisingly, not.
It's a BEAST (likely 8/8) quarter hollow, with walnut, to match my parer (weird, I know). I can't capture the beauty or size of it, quite right, but here are three shots, in an attempt. Notice the tail bend that Butch put in there. This thing belongs in a museum!
Nice whisker whacker, Tom!
