First Straight Razor

This is the first straight razor that I have ever used. Before that, I used to shave with shavette razor and ... I am not sure if that is the feature of straight razor that they are not as sharp as razors that I used with my shavette, but I am pretty sure that mine razor wasn't honed ( I used strop before starting shaving). So far this is the only thing that made me feel disappointed in the product, considering that West Coast Shaving advertises these razors as "honed". Otherwise, it is a great product. Waiting for honing stone to arrive :)

Lucky to get a fancy one as my first straight razor

Received an antique straight razor from The J.R. Torrey Razor Co. Worcester, Mass. This razor has a faux Ivory handle carved to resemble bamboo. I ordered two on same day to begin my straight razor shaving journey; one random vintage (this listing) and one other specific listing at fifty more. So my impression is that this looks great, is on heavy side to handle. Being first time straight razor user, I am extremely careful with this. With just one shave so far with each razor, I prefer my other razor (C. V. Heljestrand) as a beginner, but see myself using this once I get confidence in straight shaving. Good buy, overall!

Good Value, But With A Small Asterisk

Pros Order Fulfillment was quick, even with the free shipping (ordered Sun, delivered Wed). Good price for a quality razor Hone was well done, shave ready Fun to research the blade from its etchings (I received a Union Cutlery "Spike", manufactured about 5 hours from where I live) Cons The blade allegedly is 9/16, although it appears more narrow, while the grind is between a 1/4 and 1/2 grind (making for a less forgiving blade) Scales are a bit flimsy plastic, not sure if they are original or replacement (has a little wear, so it may be original or replaced by previous owner) No information was given on the blade, luckily it still had its etchings hat I could use to research
