    Default The RigaRazor Regatta

    Time to start a Razor Club for RigaRazors! Let's see them....

    Having acquired my first, with a second on the way, I'll start it off with this beauty, which I find reminiscent of the W&B, Ottoman Egyptian and Royal Windsor Razor.

    Made from Tungsten Carbon Steel, the feel of the steel on the face was very much akin to good old Sheffield Steel.

    This one is 9/8 + or 29.5 mm of pure shaving bliss.....

    What's it like to hone with that ridge? Someone said he sent tape with it. How about weight. Tungsten can be heavy.

    Actually was just refreshing the razor, wanted to put an Escher edge on it, it was me that mentioned he sent some tape.

    No problem, did some laps on the Nani 12k, then finished on the Escher, under the loupe, looks beautiful, stayed on the bevel that he set and nice gleaming edge. No different that any other big Sheffield chopper with a quarter stock of steel.....
