You can see the majestic size compared to an 5/8" blade. (The second 5/8 razor in the pics is only for comparison purpose and not included in the price!). 

    Superlative blade, absolute flawless, scales that are unique in shimmer & Shine. >>Just please note that there is a slight overlapping of the front scale above the blade. It means the blade is looking very slightly out from the rear side of the scale (see last 2 pics), it's even less than 1 mm.  That was due to pinning and adjusting by hand which has not been very exact. This is not a major issue, but mentioned for the sake of a complete description. Just take care when closing blade.

    Never used VERY RARE ! so is this impressive blade. Its beauty will knock you down. Stored with care & slightly oiled to avoid rust.. Comes with original factory hone dam sharp, wrapping paper, tag, warranty certificate and its coffin box still wrapped in cellophane in excellent state.

    Condition: hair moistened, tip out/root in

    HHT-0 - shave: The hair can be shaved immediately at the holding point. This is strictly spoken not a true HHT, but it does tell us that the edge is capable of shaving. [all other attempts must be made at least half an inch from the holding point]

    HHT-1 - violin : The hair doesn't cut, but it "plays violin" with the edge. This is due to the shingles catching the edge, but it's not sharp enough to penetrate. On a full hollow razor, a faint ringing sound can be heard. On all razors it can be felt with the fingertips that hold the hair.

    HHT-2 - split: When it is dragged across the edge, the edge catches the hair and splits it lengthwise.

    HHT-3 - catch&pop: When it is dragged across the edge a bit, the edge catches the hair and pops it. The severed part will jump away.

    HHT-4 - pop: The hair is popped immediately when it touches the edge. It still jumps away.

    HHT-5 - silent slicer: The hair falls silently as soon as it touches the edge.
