This came in today from Japan a NOS vintage Japanese Gold Rex for Barber first quality full hollow 13/16, I'm so pleased to have picked this razor up has I always regretted foolishly trading the very same razor a few years back it was a fantastic shaver so when I saw this I jumped on it.:-)

Thank you Richard and thank you Obie, I have one more razor coming in the not to distant future a Michael Waterhouse custom I've been talking to Michael for sometime, I've given him my specification and minor detail for the razor and Michael as shown me a few drawings and he's also made a start on the razor I'm extremely excited about this razor, so this will be my last razor for a while I think.

As being very new to Straights, and not being able to attempt shaving with one everyday, it is taking me awhile on the learning curve. Just when I think I may throw in the towel, it is seeing the nice razors you all buy and have that keeps me wanting to learn to use them.

Stick at it, Mike. You won't regret the persistence one little bit.Smile
