    Default Jose Monserrat Pou – Filarmonica Novodur #12 - 5/8 (Pretty :))

    Another Sweet Razor!!.. one of those things that you we all know and love, the only problem I have found with Filarmonicas is that when you have none you want one… when you have one… you want MORE! This is one of the best brands ever made and I must say… on my top 5 favorites. Excellent steel and if you are new to honing not to worry: piece of cake to get it to laser sharp!!!


    This Doble Temple #12 measures 5/8", i couldn't say I notice any honewear (so i taped the spine for honing) but if any, it is minimal. It does have however a bit of watermarks, all this is visible in the pictures, as well as the status of the scales which are tight and close a bit excentric to the right.

    As you can see from the pictures it is in very good shape, and ready to be part of your rotation!

    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. Then stropped on 0.3micron CrOx -> 0.1micron FeOx,As -> Latigo leather -> Japanese Shell (40 laps each)…. As I said, comfortable shaving for me (that means, my beard, skin, technique etc…), but maybe some more stropping is required for your taste. No razor leaves if I have not tested, but no worries, after testing, blade is properly cleaned/disinfected and a thin coat of camellia oil is applied to protect it and safely packed for the travel.

    I only use tracked post for sake and peace of mind of both parties (to be covered by buyer), but no worries! Regular International shipping to the US & Canada is only: $5 (30+ 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 faster, let me know and I can quote different speeds. International shipping rates to other countries might vary just a bit (1 or 2 bucks at the most), please contact me to check. Will do my best to ship the next day after payment but else, no more than 3 business days. Payment is expected within 24 hours after commitment.

    Price: $110
