    I was just at the flea market, Saturday.
    Weather was leaning towards rain, so a lot of the vendors didn't show. But being labor day, and weather was great, I went for another trip . its the last hoorah of the year, so I had to go. Found lots of junk ones, but managed three good ones on this trip.


    #1. W.H. Morley & Son's, Clover brand 6/8. ( blade only ). Light, even, hone wear. And a easy clean up.


    #2. Sperry& Alexander Co. 5/8.

    Haven't done a search on it yet, but its German made, and is stamped with a Centaur on the reverse side of the tang.


    #3. J.R. Torrey. 5/8 with worked spine, and MOP covered tang.

    Don't believe their the proper scales, so I'll have to remedy that.

    Nice going, Mike! Have to stock up now while you can, the colder months are coming. You'll have plenty of projects to see you through.

    Thanks ,Eric.
    I've been fortunate the last few weeks, there was a Sheffield blade I got earlier, that has a worked spine, too.

    You have picked up some nice worked spines lately, Mike. Nice razors!
