I'm thinking I'll never be able to afford a nice existing set but if the custom engraving is reasonable I might be able to build a set and get someone to engrave them.
What qualifies (to most of you) as a 7 day set? Any seven totally different razors that you box or roll as a set? Seven identical razors? Seven identical blades with different scales? Seven different styles, maybe all from the same maker (think 7 Ellises or 7 Seraphim )? Do they have to have the days of the week on either the blade or the scales? (or maybe the seven deadly sins, the seven wonders of the ancient world, etc.).
I'm thinking the seven posted by Huracan aren't a 'set'. They are a collection. And a gorgeous one at that. By the way, is that Thiers Issard a Cock and Bull or a Cock and Fox? I can't quite make it out.
Is it really possiable that my knees just got weak looking at these beautiful blades WOW
I'm still ticked off that I broke my Saturday.
This thread gives me RAD very very bad RAD
Congratulation on having gorgeous sets

Beautiful sets, guys. I am considering putting together a 7-day set of my own, using restored W&B blades with ebony scales. That's more of a long-term project, though :)
Meanwhile, I'll just drool over these ones.
I also posted this in the Ivory scaled razor thread, but it fits both categories so......

I have a few more sets but I need to dig them out to snap some pictures.
That set is phenomenal. Full wedge?
