    Default "Flight Club"

    This Top Flight has been my favorite shaver so far in this journey. I decided to get something going to see who else has favored these fine razors as well as myself. Show us some pics guys!
    This is one I finished on New years day, my New Years "restorlution" (I know it's a lame pun, but still...).
    11/16 near mirror finish, ghost jade g10 scales, purpleheart wood wedge that's been grain filled w/ natural shellac and finished w/ general finishes gloss arm-r-seal. Thanks for checking it out!

    Top Flights are a great little razor. I really enjoy mine. It takes such a crazy sharp edge.

    Fantastic !!....I love the scale design. Can you buy a 6" pair of Ghost Jade G10 scales for razors ?
    I'd love to get a few pairs. Thanks for sharing.

    I like my Top-Flite. Smooth shaver and holds an edge.

    I have 3 and always on the lookout for more...
    2 are 11/16" and one monster is 13/16". All great shavers, hold an edge and easy to hone. The steel is hard and a little chippy, so a good bevel then light pressure up through the hones and buttery smooth shaves after that! The first was rescaled by me in white acrylic using the original wedge. The second is the 13/16" with #5 in between the wings. The last 11/16", original scales.
