    Default Coming out of the *Clauss*et

    Seeing we have the Boker Brotherhood, The Butcher Shop and Clan of the dancing twins, I'm thinking maybe we Clauss junkies should come out of the *Clauss*et and show off our stuff as well!

    I only have two myself and I haven't got any pictures ready to go but I'm darn fond of my 13/16" New Departure razor. My other Clauss is a 5/8 Special 47 lovingly renamed "The ugly Duckling" as it was my first $10 junk shop purchase. That razor has taught me just about everything I know about straights and I still reach for it more often than any other razor. The poor thing has warped faux tortoise scales, a tarnished blade and it's been overhoned, underhoned, slammed into the scales, nicked and had it's edge ruined with bad stropping but it keeps on shaving! It's THE razor I drag out whenever I get a new hone or strop... just because I don't care...... but that's not really true because of all my razors, it was the first and it will always be in my rotation for as long as I can put an edge on it.

    I'll see what I can do about pix, in the meantime how about some of you show the rest of the guys what they are missing out on by not owning a Clauss.

    Regards

    Christian

    Nice! That's a new one on me.... I've been following Clauss for some time now on Ebay and I don't think I've ever seen one of those.

    Thanks for sharing!

    I got this one from Ranat1. What ever happened to him? I'm going to have to get me a couple more of these.

    OK I know you guys are gonna be pissed at this entry
    These are the before pics of my Clauss
    I haven't done anything to it yet, in fact I haven't even honed this one ...
    This is the next on my restore list (should be a quick restore)
    And I won't tell ya what I paid for it because I'll get kicked out of the Clauss Set....
    This was one of the best purchases I have made on E-bay to date....

    Restored ???? how about cleaned and sharpened!!!I don't think there is much of a difference here but at least I cleaned her up with Flitz
    I just got her off the hones and strops, This was a breeze to sharpen, I don't think it had ever been touched before, and if it had it must have been factory...
    It makes it so easy to sharpen razors when you're not correcting old wear patterns or crappy new factory bevels.....

    Ready to shave now!!!!

    That is me. My account got wiped out so I changed my name. I am building a stock of stuff for something have in the works. I will be putting out razors again soon. It occured to me though that i had 2 razors of my own that shaved and I kept selling the rest. So I want to be able to shave with mine and take some time to make nice ones not quick polish and sell newby ones.

    So u happy with the clauss?
