An 8/8 'Slick' hollow ground with gold wash, 5/8 Wostenholm with heavely etched blade with no rust at all in the original coffen box (price $2.00 which we could still get them for 2 bucks), 5/8 Friodur no stain, 5/8 Morley clover, 4/8 Portsmouth B.S co, Portsmouth Oh, and a 6/8 no name 'messerschmidt' razor.
