    Default Wedge razor club

    Dunno' if this has been done yet, but this is a club for those who like wedges. Joining is on the honor system. All you need to do is like wedges. No photo required unless you wanna'. Let's see your best (worst is good too).

    I dub this club "The Wedgies".

    Beautiful razors!
    Now I don't want to be picky or anything, especially since you are the lead member, but the bottom one is the only one that looks like a wedge to me. Are the other two 1/4 hollows, or just very hollow wedges (if that made sense)?

    The caption above the picture says: "C-Mon Wedge on the far left:", the C-Mon is a wedge as Dovo terms it....slight grind on it. The photo makes the C-Mon grind look deeper than it is.

    You are correct about the other two. The DD is a full hollow, as I suspect the Engstrom is too. The black Engstrom is thinner than it looks in the photo. I was too lazy to crop the picture.

    I like to think of myself as more of an instigator then a leader...

    Nice. They make my poor C-Mon wedge look like an anemic toothpick!

    More razor porn, please!

    and here are some of the smaller ones, they are also all in their original scales. the Abrams and Bowdins both have identical stampings of 2 wedges and a hammer... my guess is that they were made by the same German Razor maker.
    these are all stellar shavers.

    top to bottom
    9/16 Giesen & Forsthoff "Adoration Ax" model 292
    5/8 Pearlduck "Dubl Duck Satin Wedge"
    9/16 G.D Abrams & Sons "Our Wedge Handmade"
    5/8 Bowdins Wedge "Hand Made"
