    I have these lovely razors coming in the mail next week. Both seem to be 504 but one is Best silver steel the other Manganese Steel. Does anybody have some info on the diffrences between both razors? Why one is made with diffrent steel.

    From what little I can find out from googling, silver steel is the term given to steel that has chromium added and the manganese steel has more manganese added. The chromium gave the steel that shiny silver-like look. If my Bartmann with manganese steel is any example, the manganese makes for very shiny, stainless steel-like look, as well.

    Yes, they do look better than the earlier pics. Nice catch. Were these from ebay? I can only find the same two razors for sale for too much for the last few months.

    I got them of a Belgian second hand site. They were on there for about a month so I thought they would be gone but they were still not sold. I made an offer to the seller for both and that is how I got them. Couldn' be more happy. .

    I was lucky to buy my Bartmann at an antique mall for $120. The seller had it listed for $150. The ebay prices for the same at $499 and $599 are ridiculous. I just bought one of JimmyHAD's Bartmann's and he has 3 or 4 more he will put up for sale eventually.

    I just received a Bartmann 504 round point Best Silver Steel from JimmyHad on SRP. I will use it in a few minutes. It is 15/16 with the worked spine. Here are some photos Jimmy took.

    All right, so I have a Bartmann 503 6/8, cracked ice scales, and a slight smile if I am not mistaken. I need to have it restored but I would be thrilled to be a member of this club.

    I will update the pics when the razor is restored. I have the original box also, it says high class on it. If anyone here has info on this model, especially how it shaves, I would appreciate it.

    Best Regards

    I shave because I want to, not because I have to!
