    Why not simply call the club: The Hessians?

    No Hess pics yet? I'll post a few.

    The first is a 42 that came in a lot w/ a Gold Edge square point and a Red Imp. Hone wear is a bit heavy. The Imp was the best of the lot.

    Second is a 44 5/8, a real nice shaver. An EBay pic that I will update when my son comes over.

    Last one is a 8/8 I just received this morning. Pics are EBay specials. I will post better pics the next time my son comes over. It cleaned up really nice w/ some Mass. I can't wait to try this one. Maybe I'll be able to get it honed and try it this weekend.

    Wow, those pics are fantastic. My photography skills suck, but here's a couple I snapped...





    It seems like Hess blades don't find their way on to ebay very often.

    Hey Joe, does your 1 double as a spatula? It just looks sooooo huge; I still can't believe it's only an inch wide.

    Hess is still in business as a barber supply company in St. Paul, Minnesota on Rice Street. The only thing they sell now are Dovo razors. I cleaned out their remaining inventory 1-2 years ago and only have a few of the good ones left and those I am keeping.
