In my last antique store shopping for "honing practice" razors, there were a lot of razors that were stamped solingen on one side and a maker on the other. In that trip i did buy a W&B "special" for 45 dollars, with a slight smile, I did hone it up and it is very nice. The Sheffield steel was hard to hone all togethor i put about 10 hours into it and i am happy with the result, shaves nice. I ask about Solingens becuase i want to go back and buy some, my DE buddy wants to make the plunge to straight shaving. Any makers to esp look for, obviously Dovo sticks out, but what are other quality shavers that are made from solingen?
