    I have to admit they make beautiful razors. I'll have to get my hands on one some day.
    Thank Ryan! Until last Feb 8th I did not know anyone actually USED a straight razor. Bought my first 2 on Feb 10th, a WISS & Sons and a A. W. Wadsworth (antique store, both about 16.00 ea), and it was after joining this forum and getting in the 3 water slips stones from Troggie (Whom I am eternally grateful to! ), that I actually shaved with a straight razor. So, yes I have been oogling the Revisor razors, but not any longer than in here.

    Mark, thanks for the compliments here and at the other thread I put in about the AK-SAR-BEN razor. It was my first "restoration" if you will. I have shaved with the AK-SAR-BEN a couple of times and I must be getting my honing down better as it was a good shave.

    Sony082: It's like those previous posts say. Email Thomas Kronenberg with what model you want to buy, he will email you back the price and attach an invoice. I used the invoice number as well as the actual model number of the razor on my PayPal "send money" form. PayPal will auto change the currency configuration for you at that moment, depending on whether the eruo:dollar is up or down, it's what you pay at that moment.

    BuddyRockefella: I ordered at PayPal on the 17th of March and I got it on Friday the 25th of March. Thomas said in an email it takes between 7 to 21 days to get here from Germany depending on the amount of time in customs.

    Now, FWIW, at another forum Woodash told me that Thomas Kronenberg had told him that they use a Belgian Coticule for their hone for the razors before sending them out. It is a testament to the expert use of a Belgian Coticule. They also could (more than likely) have access to some of the better vintage Coticules there at Revisor. There is sharp, but this was an exceptionally sharp AND smooth razor to shave with.

    IMHO you need at least two.
    Thanks for the sharing of the pics! Those are great looking razors. I had also had a 6/8 shoulderless on my "looking" list. I liked the way that the upper spine had all that decoration work. You don't see that a lot in razors. They are both elegant and functional.
