the shaves with this... oh so sweet..

After using another FWE yesterday, I remembered how much I like these.
Restored Fredrick Reynolds 13/16 full hollowish with custom green paper micarta scales.

This one for me this morning
Wow! I almost feel ashamed of my ugly razor in this company!
PAROSO. One of a seven day set I picked up at a local charity shop. Four of them went straight in the trash, but three were worth saving. This was the best. Couldn't be bothered to sand (and thus lose the wash) or rescale, so I just gave it a bit of a polish, bread-knifed out a few nibbles on my new King 250/1000 and honed it up on the coti for today's shave.
Shave was okay, although I think I could have spent a bit more time on the coti. I might give it a touch up when I do next weekend's 'polish n' hone' razor!

One of my early pieces. A Jos. Rogers 15/16, near wedge. Even the shank ( 5/8ths) is wider than some of my other blades and a 1/4" thick spine,, you know you're holding something even after I ground off a quarter pound of rust. Made the scales out of Elk Antler.
