Except for new Feather str8 razors, my only traditional str8 razors have been Gold Dollar's (or modified Gold Dollars), and used/vintage razors from Ebay. This used razor is however near mint:

I will probably touch it up on lapping film, then some finishing before trying it out soon.

Well, you got a good one. Hart Steel makes an excellent straight. I've been testing one for the past week.

I have tried a couple of W&B wedges that I had on loan, and I liked the heavier grind than the hollow grind, so I am "really" looking forward to this one.

Is that a 6/8 or 7/8. The one I have been using is a 6/8.

Congrats that's a beautiful razor. I don't know much about straights but whenever I see a picture of a Hart Straight it screams luxury.

mmm.. that is beautiful.

What material are the scales? Are they one piece?

That square tip scares the living out of me.

The scales are some kind of composite material. I agree with you on the square tip. I've caught myself a couple of time this week not paying attention to what I was doing.

Very nice, what's the grind and the size of the blade?

Jamie.

Thank you guys. This one is a 7/8 size. The handle is one piece - although I am not sure what the material is. And yes, I am a little bit scared of that sharp tip on this square model!
