So... I got this junker from eBay that was so bad that I asked for my money back. The seller actually jumped right on it and refunded my money and part of the postage and told me to keep the razor.
OK... now I have a razor that I'm not going to use. Might as well make something with it. I trimmed it and added handles. Essentially, it made a Japanese style razor that was reminiscent of a Kamisori.
I shaved with it this morning and it works great. The small footprint is quite manageable and it sharpened up nicely. Took a few more passes and it isn't a Kamisori but at least now it will be used.
If mycarver is watching this... I apologize for the rough appearance. ;-}
Oh... and ... it was a Joseph Rodgers... eek... sorry... it was just too far gone to be a respectable razor.
