    This razor had spent a few months at a friends house for evaluation, but yesterday it returned to the herd.
    The response of the herd was positive. You'll see most of them smiling.

    Is that the same one that I saw as a restore job posted up here a month or so ago? Been on the lookout ever since! Very elegant razor

    Cheers Damian, give me the low down on your new Puma, I'm confident you will receive a top quality shave from that blade.

    No it isn't. Mine has not been restored. A good friend of mine has an identical one that he got restored by Brad recently. Perhaps you're referring to that one. He got himself black horn scales and a metal lined wedge. Mine still has the old Bakelite scales and plastic white spacer. I really like this blade. It's on par with my Filly.
