Dang Joel you just stole the show. Very nice!
My newest two, the mirror on both is excellent just hard to photo without getting too much reflection in either one or the other
7/8 New Grelot 1/4 Hollow
A TIPTLE I used to own and was too scared to shave with on a regular basis. Very nice razor, but when these razors reach a certain price point, my hands start to shake and I stop using them. Enjoy.
Amazing thread can't believe I missed out on it.
Lol that's it in the morning I'm taking pics of my grelots.
I've got three. Bone, Rams horn and Ivory. I call them my three musketeers.
Somehow I missed out on this thread too. Here are my favorite TI razors. L-R: Le Grelot 1/4 grind, Silverwing II #051, TIPTLE #323, Fox & Rooster Wheat Berry
6/8 TI LeGrelot - Mirror finish with Bone scales. It was a Christmas present from my wife.
5/8 TI Crownwing
Took a quick pic this morning of my three musketeers.
The pics are not the greatest as i took them with my phone, ill update and post better pics soon i promise.
These are my three Le Grelot 6/8 razors, all are 3/4 to full grind. The bone and the ivory razors are stamped 360 on the blade, while the rams horn is stamped 52.
Love these Le Grelots so much that i sold everything else i own but these.
How is the ivory on your Grelot? Does it have a nice pattern?
Actually i was surprised when i got it.
All i was used to seeing was vintage ivory which is more yellow and figured. The ivory on my razor is very white and bright, you have to look close at the scales but you can see the pattern lightly.
I think its a set of scales that will age nicely and with age show more of the ivory pattern.
