My first experience with a Dubl Duck razor ended in tragedy (for the razor) about 4 years ago. I picked up a very much used 5/8 Satin Edge at a flea market, and stupidly removed the blade from the scales and tried to polish it on a high speed buffer. I took "one last" pass after I had it shining like a diamond and ready for sharpening, and it flew out of my hands and was badly cracked. Into the trash went the razor and I was very sad to have personally destroyed it.

Now for the happy part of the story. After a lot of searching, I found two Dubl Duck razors in very good condition. The first is a GoldEdge 6/8 round point in MOP scales. The second razor is a 13/16 square point Special #1 in butterscotch bakelite scales. They'll be here soon, and I can't wait to sharpen 'em up and see how they do. I'll try to remember to come back and post the results of the first shaves.

Both of them have been cleaned up and given a nice wicked edge, and I've used them both. Here's a link: Pair of Dubl Ducks
