    Default Bartmann Lovers Club

    I have seen few Bartmann's posted in forums or for sale on ebay or in the BST or classifieds. I have a NOS Bartmann 86 15/16 High Class Manganese Steel that was shave ready out of the box and is my favorite of 90 or so straights.

    I had to do a search and found old posts here and there about Bartmann. I'm interested in any company history and for others who love Bartmann's to post there photos.

    Very nice. Did you find your's needing a hone before you used it? Have you honed it and is it easy to hone? My edge feels like it will go on forever without need of touchup.

    I'm also very fond of the Bartmann razors.

    I've got three of them (two 15/16 and a 7/8).
    The 7/8 I still have to polish up.

    These are the pictures of the 15/16 blades.

    Cheers for bringing this one up Robert! I really like Bartmann razors, but I've only got one and I think it's a contemporary Wacker model (never bothered to find out for sure though - bought it on German Ebay), but it doesn't feel like I think a vintage Bartmann would feel, (with extremely fine and delicate grind, like only the very best vintage Solingen blades can feel like):

    Thanks for posting that beautiful Bartmann. Does it say France on the tang?

    So, a relatively young company. Still don't see many for sale, just the same one or two on ebay that are way overpriced and no one is buying.
