    Gentlemen,

    This morning the Bob Allman custom razor had its premiere in my humble shave den — and it was a fantastic hit. What a delicious razor. The blade is a 7/8 in Spanish point; the scales are wood, a couple different types, I think — Bob explained it to be, but I am having a senior moment and forget.

    What is remarkable about this razor is its balance in my hands: Perfect. The razor tucks in my hands, left and right, as if designed for me — oh, Bob did design and make the razor for me, didn't he? It is not a very heavy razor, which is a blessing for my arthritic hands.

    The blade is also the perfect size for me: a 7/8. I am slowly shuffling away from the 8/8 blade, as I find it too big and bulky for my small hands and Hollywood face. My Max Sprecher 8/8 is an exception. I don't know what Max did to it, but that blade is another perfect one for me, for both hands, and I love the remarkable shave — pure silk.

    The edge on my Bob Allman custom is celestial: it's like an angel's wings slicing through soft clouds. Good show, Bob. Thank you for producing a work of art for moi.

    Bob, impressive build! Not to take away from a magnificent blade, but those scales make me want to find some side jobs in order to afford. Hat is off to ya bud.
    Obie, may it brighten your day and bring happiness to ya each n every time you use it.

    It already is, and it will be coming up in about three weeks, if not sooner. Yes, it's a sweet razor.
