    I got a bunch of straights in the mail today (just check the other Razor Clubs and you may see my crappy camera phone pics) but the gem of my purchases is this Japanese Straight I won on the bay for a decent price. I have no idea of the maker, nor do I know any history on it, but it's a beauty to behold. I'm hoping it can be honed into shave ready condition and not just be for show.

    Here is a great little Travel Razor I got off th'eBay and finally got around to cleaning up. There are still some water marks and a little very shallow pitting, but the edge is uncompromised and shaving very well after a few trips across the Norton. The edge is just 5cm long (2"). Here it is shown beside a demitasse spoon for comparison.

    Should be here Thursday. Circa 1930, it just needs a clean and a rewrap which I will probably do with to flavors of silk.

    Edit: I posted a pic from the original website. The pic must have changed with the same address.

    Will Repost later.

    Singlewedge, I think you posted in the wrong club. It's a very nice razor though.

    OK so my screen says my post is right. Do I need to log out again and change it?

    Edit: I am sooo stupid. Apologies.

    Default Tosule #3

    Yesterday I got my big Tosuke #3.

    It was not shave ready, so I honed it from Shapton Glasstone #500 up to my Nakayama Asagi. I expect that #3 is as sharp as it`s smaler brother.
