So, do you shave with that thing, or do you take over a small country? Pull that from a stone and they'll make you king! :biggrin:

I'm not kidding.... I am going to find a mail scale.... but I think it weighs more than a pound. Pics don't do this justice... when you see it in person, it's down right absurd.

I have no doubt in my mind if one got careless and slipped - this could actually shear your entire ear off (no joke).

This thing has balls that could choke a whale.

my thoughts aswell, but the extra width will hold lather nicely you can do more strokes before you need to rinse id say.

Joel didn't mention that this is a hand forged razor. Beautiful work.

Joel,

You must provide reports of its performance (& more photos)! Having new options available by custom makers is awesome, and word needs to get around about the availablility of these makers & options. :thumbup:

Two questions - how big and why?

I can't fail to be impressed by the beauty of this razor.

Size be damned! It's just a beautiful piece of work and even if never used it's worth the tariff just to enjoy ownwership.

#1 - I think it is around 11/8ths...

#2 - Wasn't by choice... I ordered it, without specifying size (thinking it would be around 6/8-8/8.

Are you actually going to shave with this beast?

I'm pretty new to this, but I can't imagine using something this big.

I didn't have any problems with 5/8 or 6/8, but found 7/8 a little awkward - I cant' imagine using a 8/8, let alone a 11/8!

If you do use it, you'll have to let us know what the experience is like - especially around the chin & under the nose.

One thing's for sure, a momentary lapse of attention with this razor and you'll be needing reconstructive surgery!

Beautiful razor - love the wedges.

You bet your bippy it's a user. ALL of the razors I buy/own/keep are users... I am a user, not just a collector :biggrin:

Shaved with it no problem and it delivered a superlative shave, just need to work on the edge a little more - but sweet mother of god this steel is absurdly hard. It just laughs at a norton 4K.

No surprise. Like I said, it's a razor I would certainly enjoy using. All that blade weight behind a keen edge no doubt makes for a breezy, pleasant shave. I also am a user/collector. There are a couple of exceptions -- razors I plan to keep pristine in their packaging to give to my son. If, by the time he's old enough to use them he decides he doesn't like them, I'm sure I'll be able to sell them for an even more substantial price than I could get now. It's a win-win. :wink:

I think that folks see a huge blade like that and assume it's harder to use. I own a mammoth of a Wade & Butcher wedge with horn scales, and while supporting its weight becomes more important than when I use a 5/8, the heft behind the edge helps the razor fall through the hairs with much less push-through than I'd need to use with a smaller blade. I find sharper and heavier more enjoyable to use than smaller and lighter. Each has its place, and I have a 4/8 Wostenholm that's sharp as sin -- and I'd never part with it. Light as a feather that one.
