    Wow! It must be great! I did the Jimi Hendrix experience once. Man was that weird!

    Default Finally have some decent pics!

    I've had this razor for the better part of a year, but it's a PIA to photograph. So finally...This is a 6/8 French point high carbon blade. The scales are pre-ban elephant ivory. Robert scrimshawed my initials. I love this razor. Great shaver and the scales - fuggedoudit!

    This is my Classic English 7/8 in Stag Horn. Although, not exactly mine (because it is going to be a present for my bro), I thought I should post it here, since it is at least for the moment in my possession. I even gave it a try and all I have to say is that my brother might eventually end up without a present at all. This is hands down the BEST EVER shaver I had! EVER!

    Also, check the tang. It is etched and reads "Robert Williams, handmade".

    P.S.: When it comes to RW's experience though, we should make a special note to the character of the man. Friendly, polite, helpful apart from an extremely skilled smith.

    +1 on Robert's character. That is a beauty you bought for your brother. I love the blade and the scales. RW is hard to beat.
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    I just want to say that I placed yet another order to Robert. And from now on I won't let any other blade touch my face. RW FTW!!!

    Default My first RW

    A 21st Century "Barbers Use" razor...

    8/8, 1/4 hollow, burgundy micarta with brass wedge

    The tang has his paddle tail design (and easily long enough for two fingers to rest on), and the thumb notch's ergonomics are really nice.
