I haven't posted any scores for a little while but I've got some great straights in the last few weeks so I thought I'd put a few pictures up of them.
First is a 11/16 Le Jaguar. I was drawn to this one as it's one of the few I've seen with the inlayed scales in good condition.
An A Vedel 13/16 in fantastic condition with a worked spine.
A 6/8 vintage LeGrelot with a worked spine. The original scales were in poor condition so I put the blade in a great set of bone scales I had in my spare parts bin.
A 15/16 Palmier 14. I'm guessing that this is a Spanish made blade for the French market.
A Morris Red Imp 11/16. I've had a few Red Imps and haven't been that impressed with them. This is the first Morris and it's a wedge so I'm expecting good shaving from it.
An F.W. Engels Leader. 11/16. I love the detail they put into the bolsters on the scales.
A 13/16 Hoffritz with most of the gold wash still intact.
An Eric Anton Berg 6/8 shoulderless. A beautiful Swedish blade.
An finally a 15/16 Rudolf Schmidt from Solingen.
None of them are shave ready so I've got a lot of honing to do over the Easter break.
