    I've got one like that as well except that mine's got a barber's notch. It's one of my favorite razors, and gorgeous to boot.

    I'd love to take some pictures Joel, but I don't have a digital camera...I'm trying to get my buddy to come up and take some pictures, but it's been kinda hard to set things up with work and catching the flu and all...

    I too, am on the B&B waiting list....

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

    Well, the restoration isn't quite complete, so I'll post it here as opposed to the restoration thread.

    I sanded down the blade, it's too bad, as there was an awesome etching on the front with the little LeGrelot bell and something about the razor being made in 1931. Alas, the blade was also pitted, so the sandpaper ate the etching to get at the pitting. The blade also had a frown. Nothing that a little elbow grease couldn't take care of!

    I had my first shave with it last night. This razor can take a very sharp edge! I finished it down to 0.5um on my hanging strop, and it was almost too sharp. I got one cut from hesitating for but a moment with the blade on my face. I'll try leaving it at a 1.0um finish next time to try and tame it down a bit.

    Next up is to make some scales for it, as it certainly is shave-worthy!

    Viva La France!

    Is this for TIs only or will you accept other French razors also? I have a Sarry-Thiers Frameback would this count as my entry to the club, but I am also waiting for a SRP TI from Classic Shaving honed by Lynn
