    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!

    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.

    I like the hammered spine. Robert does a good job.

    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.

    Now that's something! Who said it is not possible to shave with a cleaver? Hmm one of bosses from Diablo 1 came to my mind: 'Butcher'

    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.

    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.
