    My TI Historic Silver Steel......she was such a beauty....but a lousy shaver. In the end, she had to go to a new master.




    This is the TI Limited Edition B&B Pink Ivory LeGrelot that 80 of us over at Badger & Blade are currently waiting for. Joel set up the buy for the very last 80 LeGrelot blades that TI had left.....can't wait to take her for a spin!

    I know sometimes those TI's break your heart with the quality control issues....

    I wonder what makes these historic? I've only seen one place make that claim. Just about all my TI's look like this and I bought them all years ago but back then no one was claiming that these were historic. All were pretty much sold as standard TI offerings.

    It's a shame it didn't perform for you. These razors are capable of a wonderfully keen and smooth edge. I love mine.

    Regards,

    The historic blades are 100 year old forgings that have recently been ground into razors as offered by rasupur below.
    http://www.rasurpur.de/english/shop/index.html

    My two TIs are fantastic shavers. One is 5/8's extra hollow with snakewood scales and the other is a 7/8's extra hollow with red stamina scales. The shaves from both razors are extremely close, long lasting and comfortable. They can only be matched by my Bergischer Lowe. I had no difficultly putting a finish edge on either TI with my spyderco UF stone.

    I will post pictures tonight.

    Historic?

    I'm awaiting delivery of my first ever Ebay purchase:

    1931 Le Grelot!




    I hope to have it in my sweaty little mitts by the end of the week and start in on the Maas & rescaling!
