Gentlemen,

Cleaning and honing the Wade & Butcher set was quite easy: a scrubbing with Mass, a scrubbing with toothbrush, water and soap, sanitizing and honing. This is what they look like oiled and ready to party. I must say, they took a fabulous edge. The complete shave tests are Thursday and Friday. Thanks for viewing.

Gentlemen,
Thank you for the kind words. I shaved with the first in the set this morning and was quite pleased. The razor took a lovely edge. The second razor is set for tomorrow's shave.

How kind of you, my friend. Thank you. And they took a glorious edge, too, and about as sweetest shavers as you can fined. I am most pleased.
Stay well.

Obie, those are absolutely beautiful (as are the other razors in the photo). My only smiley Wade & Butcher is my favorite shaver. Did you make the racks for your straights, or are they available somewhere?
