    Was that the one on ebay? I was in the running, but it went out of my league. She's a nice blade!

    (My largest is a tie between an 8/8 W&B wedge and my 8/8 Savage & Sons wedge; I crave something bigger - I want a 9/8 and a 10/8!)

    Edit - By the way, I just went back to look at the auction photos, and you did a really nice job cleaning her up. I bid low cause she didn't look like she was in great shape.

    There's space enough to reflect the full camera body on that nice blade!
    ..I was in the running too, holli4, and the same for me.

    Can't top that beauty! I do have a Friedmann and Lauterjung "Tiger", but it is 15/16 and hollow ground. Yours is ancient and super well preserved. Very nice addition to your collection!

    That's a very nice score you made there! Cleaned up really nice. Please give a post after your first shave with it.

    I have a few 8/8s but I believe this one is just a little bigger. Brought it to the barber once (I always bring my own straight) and boy did his eyes go wide and his chin hit his chest, as do most people. I believe it is due to the reflection from the hollow grind on such a big blade. He really enjoyed using it.
