Hello again.


I am the guy in Twin Falls that you helped out the other day in the introductions forum. I am looking at buying a razor that I found in an antique store here in Twin and was thriiled to see your name next to an offer of honing services. The razor I found is a Case's Ace that is in very good shape. I have no idea when it was honed last but i thought that it would be a good idea to send it off to a pro like yourself and have it worked over before I try to use it. So do you know much about this brand? I have read a few write ups on them and they are apparently a pretty good razor from what I have seen. The markings on the razor suggest that it is from the 40's but if that is the case then it is in excellent condition for its age. Other than a couple of very small spots on the blade it is absolutely clean.


I will most likely be picking it up in the next couple of weeks and I will ship it off to you shortly after.


Thanks again.

I can't say enough about the great job Six Gun did on my razor! It was in "butter knife" condition after my first attempt at honing and therefore in dire need of professional care.
The 1st shave from this razor was better than the very 1st time I ever used it! What is so amazing about that fact is that the vendor guarentees "shave ready" razors honed by a "professional" before thay are shipped. That same claim is made by almost every vendor site I have visited AND they almost ALL use the same "professional."
The turn around time was almost immediate. I received an email one day to inform me he had received the razorand the next day I received another email to let me know he had finished the razor and would have it in the morning mail.
Not only was the razor sharpened, it was treated with germacide, dried then coated with a preservative and wrapped with anti-rust paper before being shipped back to me. The "professional" who honed it for the vendor simply rewrapped it with the factory paper, put it in an envelope and mailed it. Who sounds more professional? I leave it to you to decide but my money is on Six Gun!
For future purchases I will send all new razors to Six Gun for the initial "professional" honing to achieve a true "shave ready" condition unless he is the professional that vendor uses.
Well done Six Gun. Thank you again.
Semper Fi,
Sam

Communication was difficult. Received half written emails that were confusing. Some emails were ignored, taking 2 or 3 to receive a response. It took about 5 weeks to receive the razors back.


Shipping costs were very reasonable, excellent work performed, quality of work was high. Price for work performed was excellent. Worth the wait.
