I don't care for the plastic scales. I have a line on some ivory that would look nice I think.
My Ator isn't the prettiest, but the shave is smoooooooooth. Also, sorry about the photo quality. I used my phone.
One I've been meaning to post.
ERN Eagle & Snake 6/8 Full Hollow - bought as a NOS at local auction site - btw. excellent shaver - very smooth and easy to hone
Now that is a beauty.
My new 6/8 ERN Gold Medal
Went on a little tear buying these the last few months
Here is the first- actually had this one a while and already posted it but I have since gotten rid of the butt ugly scales I made for it and replaced them with a nicer set..
ERN Boss Klipper
Ern #2- ERN Sword, 11/16 blade
Ern #3- 7/8 Eagle & Snake
Ern #4- ERN Ator, probably my favorite out of the bunch
Ern #5- ERN 15/16 Eagle & Snake w/ worked spine, just received a day or two ago..
And for good measure, all of them together..
Right now these are my favorite razors for a few reasons.
I like the steel, they give great comfortable shaves. I'm no expert for sure but I think the hardness of the steel in these hits just the right balance between too hard and too soft. They are easy to put a good edge on and not too quick to lose it.
They are not super sought after right now, I didn't pay over $70 for any of these. (Of course, I just realized that three of these are from a member here who sold them to me at excellent prices. The other two were off of Ebay though, prices were more than reasonable and most of the ones on my watch list stay within the realm of reason.)
Most of the ones I've seen come up for sale are 6/8 or better, it seems like they made a lot of big blades.
Now to find a nice Gong, that's next on my WTB list I think.

Eddie, that Hamburg Ring is awesome!
Thank you OTTO, I just wish I had a few more of them.
