    Default Clan of the Dancing Twins

    Since users are posting to The Boker Brotherhood and The Butcher Shop I thought that I would start The Clan of the Dancing Twins.

    Here is a recent find at a local antiques shop. Of course, the razor wasn't in this good of shape. I spent about an hour with MAAS and a rag, as well as, an application of dental floss in those tight places. (Everyone has seen dirty razors, so I won't waste your time with those photos.)

    Notice that that it came with the original box, and I can almost make out the original owner's name handwritten on the label on the back.

    I am happy with this find.

    Bob

    very nice...
    I love my Henckels
    The one on the left is an 8/8 high carbon, and is my #1 shaver hands down...
    on the right is a 7/8 froidur spanish point in Kudu scales, and is also an excellent shaver.
    I'll step out on a limb and say I've yet to find a razor better than a Henckels.

    OK, here's two real quick....my 7/8 Friodur I bought from drfred and my rescaled spike. This blade needed scales and I had a Fily with a broken blade....so this became my first rescale project. I call her my Henkelmonica....lol....I'll probably put some customs on her once I get some more made.

    Smile My humble submission to the Clan

    This is my 11/16 Friodur not fancy but she sure can cut.... When Solingen blades are done right they really are done right....Smooth, sharp and easy to hone what more can you ask for!!!!!!

    I found the twin to my razor (see first post). It is another number 18. Unfortunately, someone neutered the spike.

    Different coffin also.
