    Default Middleton FABU Sheffield Chopper

    Showed up today. Steel is less rotten than I figured it would be. It has to come off those overly small replacement vulcanized scales and have horn reinstated.

    This was actually a cared for blade but it got bit a bit on the tang and up by the spine by what looks like cell rot storage proximity. It's pretty mild though, usually when I get a chopper I need to find the razor within the rot. Never saw the fabu stamp either. Have seen for barbers use, for barbers only, for gentleman's use, not that though. This razor also has top and bottom jimping that is tremendously grippy which is strange.
