I've been cultivating a pick at a local estate shop for the past month and finally got the shop owner to cave and give me a great deal on some nice straights.

2 x Goldenedge Dubl Ducks 11/16, and 9/16
1 x Lifetime Dubl Duck 5/8
1 x Ern 32 Crown and Sword 5/8
1 x Dovo Round Tip 25 6/8
1 x Red Imp 133 5/8
1 x Adoration 295 5/8
1 x Kama Roundtip 6/8

And the razor pics:

The Crown & Sword is the stand out razor along with the one Goldedge and the Fritz Bracht, the one Goldedge as a really nasty frown I would bin the blade and keep the scales for a nice Goldedge blade in the future, but If you wanted to you could breadknife the blade get it completely flat lose a bit of size probably look more like a 4/8 if you don't mind having a smaller blade, but to me the value is in the scales.

Good eyes Jamie! The frowning gold edge is going to be a restoration razor. The belly of it measures right around 9/16, after bread knife and bevel I suspect it will be a 4/8. I snagged it from the shop as a project razor. Overall the lot of 8 razors was quite reasonable, after thumb wrestling I paid $240 for all 8.

Congrats, those are some very nice finds and worth the patience it took to get them. That was a good thumb wrestle.

I went back and snagged a couple more. Wild picking is way too much fun! (though this was more like fish in a barrel!)

Today I snagged:

Cased FB
8/8 Monster sheffield (A Wilson.. anyone heard of them? Also, Gleg's a whittle... huh?), with awful home grown scales
Henckels 415 with the instructions, sleeve and case
