    Default Anyone ever heard of this custom razor maker I found on eBay?

    I first saw this on eBay a few weeks ago & was going to mention it them but I went ahead & saved it to my razor list. I was deleting things on it to make some space & saw that it had ended so I looked thinking the listing ended but someone bought it . This is a 15/16" made from 01 tool steel. I would have wanted to know more about this new seller I never heard of until just a few weeks ago. I just haven't heard any good reviews about. Here is the link to the listing:

    I haven't heard of this guy. Maybe new to the scene?
    I'd go with someone who I knew and that has a reputation of quality goods.
    Maybe this guy eBay has good stuff? Hopefully others will chime in.

    Happy Easter, Steve!
    Is it over there or over yonder?

    Thought I saw that before, thanks Grazor.
    I liked it as well, crooked name etch not withstanding.

    Yeah, it doesn't look bad & I just never heard of this person. I never even saw the post here before. I wish Jared lots of luck in the future!

    Thin spine combined with 15/16" blade = wide bevel and a weak edge. If you want to get an idea what the spine of such size blade should be take a look at a #14 Filarmonica or #17 Friodur.
    It could be the pictures but I do not like the heel stabilizer, it reminds me of a Henckels kitchen knife- too thick and at risk to drag on the stones.

    Sorry for the rant, this is the third custom I have seen this week with spine to blade width ratio discrepancy.

    I understand Stefan. Thanks for your input. I just never heard of this maker until I posted it.

    Good point Stefan, hard to spot when you are looking on your phone.
