    Default The MAB dwarf NOS razor shoulderless french point

    Picked this little guy up from a seller in Canada. The Mab dwarf razor. It is a shoulder-less hollow grind from the late 1800 to early 1900 from Birmingham England. It is a NOS (new old stock) razor, never honed or used all original with its box. Just needed a little polish to clean it up. Unique razor with a 2 inch cutting edge and French point. You dont see many of these in this condition. Now the difficult decision will be hone and use or leave NOS.

    Give it a hone and a shave, the poor thing has been waiting a long time to do her job.

    Hone with tape and use it at least once.

    That is one good looking razor. I have said this before but I love a shoulderless razor with a french point, hone that baby up and use it.

    I agree with 32t, honing with tape is the ticket.
    Bread and water can so easily become tea and toast

    I totally agree... couldn't have said it better!
    When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead. It's difficult only for the others.
    It's the same when you are stupid.

    + 1. Sort of like "if no picture, it didn't happen." If no hone and a shave, it aint a razor.

    I always feel sorry when I see a nun. What a waste.
