    Ugly old dog, but my first razor and still in rotation. Shave quality is up there with the big boys in my cabinet.

    Just picked up this crown and sword with a nice size chip. I'm not sure whether to use it for honing practice or have someone with some skill attempt to even out the blade for me. Either way, I still enjoy it. Name:  IMAG0222.jpg

    That chip can be blended in to the natural curve of the round point to where you would hardly notice it. Take your dmt 325 and put it to work...

    Thanks for the advice shooter, I was able to round out the point in a natural way, I think, and it looks pretty decent. I was able to get it back to shaving condition but haven't started cleaning up the blade yet. I will post pics as I get them loaded.

    You did just fine my friend. Most of us polish blades before we hone as most polishing will effect the edge, even by hand. Just a bit of FYI for future reference...you will see.

    I picked up an ERN Ator last week and I must say it is the UGLIEST yet COOLEST razor in my little collection. Kind of like an old Studebaker. Were these only made in 1903?

    I can't let that pass! My Ator (11/16) is not only my favorite shaver, it is one of the loveliest razors in my collection:

    I love the shoulderless heel of the blade, and the hump on the tang over the letters. To me, the whole shape is just super-elegant. And... shiny!

    Mine was made a lot later than 1903 I believe - it has 'Thursday' written on the spine, and the method used was spark-etching, which I'm pretty sure wasn't around in 1903.

    Elegant! Ha! We have very differen't tastes! I've got a bit more cleaning up to do on my Ator before honing it up. The razor is certainly growing on me... and hopefully she'll shave as well as I've been hearing about. Does anyone know if the serial number may correlate to the date of production? The serial on mine is O.M. 142302. The serial number is also stamped inside the scales and has 245 5/8 molded into the scales as well.
