Each one of these razors is shave-ready and has little to almost no hone wear, and all have been honed without tape. All are without rust, but some have slight water spots or remnants of pitting--the pictures are the best indicator of any aesthetic issues. All of these razors close center with the exception of the Flic and Gevoso, which should be closed with care (not that any razor shouldn't). All razors will be shipped shave-ready and oiled. The prices include shipping within the continental US with tracking (insurance extra). I will ship internationally, but the price will be more to cover any added shipping costs. For all buyers, I will offer free rehoning at no cost to the buyer other than shipping expenses.

PM me with any questions. I value honesty and my reputation over a quick sale.

Yes, this is a traditional frameback. It has two pieces of metal: the blade and the frame/tang. If you look closely at the tail, you can see how the tang was folded over. I don't know what the non-blade portion is made of, but I'd guess that it's a soft steel (certainly not brass). If you're into framebacks, this is a good example of the lean, Swedish variety.

PM sent on the Swede Dahlgren frame-back. I couldn't stand it any longer...

Someone got a great deal on that Schmidt Bambola.
Definitely worth more than what it sold for.

The Dahlgren is sold.

Alum of Potash kindly noted that today is a federal holiday, so the post office is closed. I prefer to make sure that the postal clerk scans in the packages so will drop these off during lunch tomorrow.

The Challenge Cutlery razor has been traded. All that remains is the Gevoso.
