    Default Anything less than seven club!

    Okay guys, I have found that I prefer the smaller sets (get your mind out of the gutter)...You know, 2, 3, 4 blade sets! I love them! When I see them I want to acquire them, Especially if they are in their original containers, so I am forming a new club. If you love razor sets better than your hones,better than that John Barber that was going to be your last razor acquisition, better than a set of 36C...err...strike that. If you love your razor sets then show them off here!

    seven day sets need not apply!

    Well, here are my sets! First is a 4 day set by Mappin & webb, 3/8's 1/2 hollow with thick ivory scales
    the second is a Joseph Rodgers 2 day set, 6/8's wedges. one has ivory scales and the other was likely rescaled with bone
    the third is a Harrison Bros. & Howson 2 day set, 6/8's shoulderless wedges with ivory scales. Likely my favorite razors!
    The fourth set I just acquired, in fact they just came in the mail today! A Henckels 2 day set, 5/8's double hollow with bone scales!

    The scans suck and do not do these blades justice.



    So, what do you guys have?

    Mine is a four day Mappin & Webb, Celebrated Sheffield Hollow Ground, with ebony scales. The blades are marked "Special Steel." I am not sure what that means, but from what I have read, it was supposed to be a harder type of steel the manufacturer used. The set comes in a slim wooden case with brass bolsters and hardware. The dividers are leather. The green satin and felt liners are worn, and maybe someday I will re-line the box. Or not.
