    Default My first Livi

    Directly, three hours ago, from Livi's hands to mine. I'm excited!

    If I may come forth with a humble request. Some of you must have some Livi brushes as well. I have one which is part of a set and one that I bought separately. Please post them as well if you don't mind the extra hassle. I'd put my own up but I can either buy a camera or a new netbook (my old one is broken) this month. And since the book helps me with studies it takes priority.

    Both of mine are very rustic/rual/basic in their appearance but really nice.

    Default Mastro Livi

    These razors are very nice eye candy for us all. I have always appreciated quality in guns, golf clubs, music, art and many other things in life. I have all too many razors that can be considered mediocre quality. When I came across this M-Livi club page, it prompted feelings that I should sell all my guns before my benevolent government takes them away by force, then spend the money on as many M-Livi and other quality razors as I can afford.

    Nice razors anyway you look at them. Anyone interested in a couple of pre-'64 Winchesters?

    My new Mastro Livi Custom 8/8 Bergam Damask in Mammoth Ivory Scales.
    Great, fast service from Don and Lynn at Straight Razor Designs.

    The honing was first rate! Thanks Lynn.

    To bad my photos didn't really show how beautiful the blade is.

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

    When I showed the Livi site to my wife she thought them verrrry beautiful.
    Then she said "very nice, but, you're not really going to spend that much money on a razor, do you ?? DO YOU ???????????".
    It'll be a while before I join the club guys ....

    Default My "Late" entry to the club...

    The story of how this one came home is a good one too...
    This is an older originally 7/8 Rose pattern Livi that originally had warped Cocobolo scales on it... The second owner bought it with much needed edge work to be done... The blade came out to me and I evened up the bevel and sharpened it out... The test shave was one of the best I have ever had, BUT the owner just couldn't get it to shave, so I had him send it back re-checked the blade and again had a great shave, but I tweaked it up any way and sent it home..
    I had told him that if he ever wanted to sell the razor to please let me know, as it was one of the easiest most comfortable shaves I had ever enjoyed... About a year later the PM came, asking if I was still interested and I bought her...
    I took off the old scales and replaced them with White Pearl Acrylics and have loved the razor ever since...pictured here with Valobra Almond shave soap for the Italian connection
