Well hat's off to you Michael you've done amazing work on this beautiful razor even though I was probably a difficult customer :-) anyway lets get down to the spec's and the nitty gritty firstly I contacted Michael and asked him for a 7/8 with double jimping which I'm a big fan of especially when stropping I love them, second I wanted a little more hollow a grind than a quarter which fare play to Michael he even ordered another set of wheels from the USA for this grind I also wanted flecked Buffalo horn scales and Giraffe bone wedge they look stunning the fit and finish and more importantly the balance of the razor is superb, and what can I say the shave was what I expected having tested out one of Michaels earlier razors, I'm going to start a Michael Waterhouse razor club over on the straight razor place probably later today so I would appreciate any Michael Waterhouse owners to post their razors.

That is a Super Looking Straight! Shoulderless blades are so nice to look at.
I'm glad it shaves as good as it shows.

Very nice Jamie

I may have to ask Michael for his pictures of my Waterhouse, my camera skills are somewhat lacking :-)

Thanks Richard, now that I know you are waiting on one of Michael's razors that's something I certainly look forward to, I'm sure you will love the craftsmanship quality and design of Michael's razors his custom knives are a prelude to his razors.

That is very nice. How easy is it to get him to make one for someone, like me, in the USA?

I just received an email from Michael with a photo of the razor he's working on for me. I'm so impressed with his craftsmanship.
