    Default Le Grelot 193 "Royal Canada" P.Hospital (thiers Canada) 5/8 Excelent Condition

    For those who know the brand Le Grelot, you don’t need me to tell you how good are these razors, especially the ones from the P.Hospital era; they are absolutely great!
    This Royal Canada P.Hospital & Co. (193 model), with a near mint blade of 5/8 hollow ground and gorgeous original scales (ivory color), made in Thiers France, is in such an excellent condition that I should call it a near mint razor. Almost o cleaning at all made (or needed) in the blase itself, and the only signs of aging are in the tang and just a small section of the spine (as you can see in the pictures) nothing that actually calls the attention.
    The fact that you can actually see the original factory grinding on both sides and the super nice golden etching perfect and vivid as the first day is a prove of the integrity of the blade. Near zero hone wear, I would say this blade might have been honed only once before it came to my hands… I just had to clean a bit, hone, strop, test and oil it for you to enjoy a shave from one of the most notorious French Thiers razor company. Without a doubt on my top selection of razors/brands, this razor is just made for giving you pleasure!

    The blade is Shave Ready (for my taste). Honed with one layer of electrical tape on Naniwa Progression: Chosera 1k -> Aotoshi 2k -> Chosera 3k -> Chosera 5k -> Junpaku 8k, SS 12k, and finished in Suehiro Gokumyo 20K. As I said, comfortable shaving for me (that means, my beard, skin, technique etc…), but maybe some more stropping is required for your taste. After testing, blade is cleaned and a thin coat of camellia oil is applied.

    I only use tracked post for sake and peace of mind of both parties, but no worries! Regular International shipping to the US & Canada is only costs you: $5 (around 20 business days is what the post office give as estimate time, I’ve seen most of the times it takes less). If you want it a bit faster, let me know and I can quote. International shipping rates to other countries might vary just a bit (1 or 2 bucks at the most), please contact me to check.
    To be paid with Paypal F&F (come on guys price is low already, I can do G&S but you’ll have to cover the 5% fee from Paypal). Will do my best to ship the next day after payment but else, no more than 3 business days.

    Huuuuuuurry up First-come, first-served (as usual )

    Price: $115
