    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    I finally got around to taking a picture of my Hess. It was my first straight razor and purchased new in 1987-1988. It's an 11/16", 1/4 hollow

    Hello, Mr. newbie member, here!

    I just picked up a beautifully restored #1 from eBay today (Apr2,10) and I think I got a heck of a deal. Only $64. $72 if one includes S&H. What do you fellas think of the price?

    I love that one inch blade you have. It's awesome. I'm on the lookout for a one inch as well. That's a goal right now - to have each blade size to start with. Just beginning my collecting. Then as my collecting matures, the sky is the limit.....or until the wife says enough.

    The other pictures you all have displayed are of some gorgeous looking razors. It's amazing to me all the workmanship that goes into some of them. Truly works of art (imo).

    I suggest (if someone hasn't already) that we have a dedicated thread to the brand name HESS so that it's easy to search from our sites search engine. Plus, a HESS photo gallery sounds really nice too. Don't you think? We can morph this one into that thread.

    They're all awfully beautiful in their own rights and should be displayed - and I just like looking at them. Kind of like looking at a pair of gorgeous legs on a woman! But I am no computer NET guy and dunno how much it costs to store images on a server so it might not be a good idea afterall.

    Just a thought.

    I am now sold on HESS!

    Default Very tastey looking

    This is the voice of jealousy. 'Looks great. By all I've ever heard, the shaves should be outstanding.

    HESS 44 stainless steel frozen temper. This the first one I've found and it looks to be unused. Can't wait to try it out.
