Ready for work


Received a couple of fine vintage razors from Stefan out in Sweden today.  I'm a sucker for a nice etch, and especially if it's in some teutonic language like Swedish or German.  

Stefan always gives good value for the money, and these are no exception.  Nasty sharp out of the box and ready to go -- but be attentive!  They'll shave like a dream but nick you in an instant if you're not paying attention!

I'm going to put the Hellberg to work tomorrow, and maybe at some point send it off to Max for new, more interesting scales.  

Good all around fun for sure.  I love this stuff.


  1. C.W., does this Max you mentioned work on pocket folders? Dad's old 3-bladed Kutmaster turned up when I cleaned out his stuff and it's in need of new scales. Can't justify it financially but emotionally is a different set of calculations...….

    1. Not that I know of, but you could ask. The emotional justification is justification enough. Money is money, but Dad's old pocket knife is one of a kind.

  2. Thanks much, C.W., I shall inquire.
