    Default The Cattaraugus club

    I'll start this off with my Cattaraugus Green Lizard. It isn't the best of shape but it will do! I have not cleaned it up or honed it yet. I hope to find one like this in mint condition one day.

    How do I go about joining the club? These both need some work on them still. The smaller one in the second set of pictures is the Cattaraugus. (The other one is a Case, so it's extended family.)

    Nice catch Drygulch. You're in it! I love the Green Lizard's. They are great shavers when honed & stropped right. The Case is nice too & you're right, they come from the same family pretty much. Made in Little Valley, NY.
    I will have some more Green Lizard's to show off soon. I'm making a seven day set of 'em!

    Here's darker version of a Green Lizard & the only difference I can see is this one hs an 11/16" blade on it as opposed to my others that are lighter green & are 5/8" or just a tad more.

    I'm working on a seven day set of the Green Lizards & i just got another darker version. Rather than the previous one mentioned, it is actually a 6/8" & so is the one I got Just got. I have six of the lighter green versions & hey have 5/8" blades. It seems the dark green version in 6/8"!

    Here's my cattaraugus paired with a W. Korn razor of the same shape an name. I alway find it interesting when you find razors of different brands that are named, shaped, the same.

    1st cattaraugus real in cream scales.

    2nd W. Korn real in transparent red scales.

    So here is final product just off the hones and test it tonight. Left some patina behind so as not to lose any etch plus I always like the character.
