    Default Douglas cutlery

    Hey everyone I just made an impulse buy on this travel razor. I don't know much about it except my eye really liked it. Let me know what you think.

    Did you get that from Bishop Pickle???? Douglas Cutlery has done 2 of my razors, one a Reynolds restore, the other a custom. I love them both to death, and your's looks a lot like my Reynolds. Doug does a great job and cares about his work.

    Excellent buy!! I like it!!!

    I did get it from Bishop on their eBay listing. I'm glad you like yours. It makes it even more exciting for me.

    Hey Hd172,

    I just bought a razor from Douglas Cutlery as well, and I'm really excited! Have you shaved with this one yet? If so, how was it???

    Did you have one made, or buy off of ebay?? I have both from Douglas Cutlery now. Both are wedge or near wedge razors, and shave incredible, as any well honed wedge is expected to!!

    I love both of mine, I have a really old Reynolds that Douglas restored in walnut micarta, and a hand made custom made just for me that is a spanish point near wedge. Incredible razors, and incredible shavers.

    Highly recommended!!!

    I just bought this one off of ebay this afternoon. I actually hadn't thought of buying it when I first saw it because it seemed too cheap to truly be a hand crafted razor. Plus I'm generally wary of new razors on ebay in the first place. But when I had a Filarmonica DT13 snatched out from under me at the last second (still a little mad), I decided to take another look at this and do some research about the respectability of Douglas Cutlery. I'm so glad I did, because if these shave as good as they look, and as well as everyone says they do, then I just scored a fantastic, one of a kind razor for an unbelievable price!

    Thanks so much for your recommendation earlier in this thread because that's partly why I bought the razor. Also, it's nice to see some other folks on this site from Colorado!

    Thanks again, and Happy Holidays!

    Thanks you guys! I was also skeptical when I saw a sweet looking 8/8 axe head with black micarta scales. Your feedback made it easy for me to pull the trigger!Name:  FC9pGGV12BQyQ)Dh(Vg~~60_12.JPG

    I would be asking myself why the bevel is so freaking huge on a new "custom" razor...
