    Model: 7-0007
    Size: 7/8
    Point: French
    Blade: Solingen

    Notes & Photos


    Other than blade width and French point, the razor that arrived (months later — it came by boat due to pandemic shipping pandemonium) looks very little like the one I ordered (shown in the vendor's description). But I like the red scales and it's the right size and a nice shaver, so I just kept it. I did inquire about the scales and they said they were out of the black ones so just put one handy set. They seemed relieved I wasn't going to send it back.)


    This razor hit the floor from The Great Shelf Collapse and the blade has bent or warped such that it will not take a bevel along its length without a great deal of effort — and a lot of ugly honewear trying. Blade is now closer to 6/8 than 7/8. Most successful effort was using a 1.5, 5k, 8k, 20k progression on the side edges of hones.

    Do not sell without clear statement of defect.

    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.
