My "new" old razor. Impulse buy on ebay, but yes, I know how to use these things, and I plan to sharpen it for actual use. What I didn't know, was that it was made before 1891 (according to an expert I asked)

    That is a rare find.

    It is pretty rare, at least considering that I only paid $55 :). They also tend to be much rustier by that age, but this one is in excellent condition. If it's very dull I'll send it to a professional sharpener I know. When they are ready, these things can cut hairs in mid air.

    The guy on ebay didn't know. It was after I bought it that I found out how old it is. Anyway, I'll let you know how it shaves once I have restored the edge, which may take a while.

    I shave my face with a double-edge (head with a HeadBlade). I would love to learn how to effectively use one of these. Nice.
