I have had the pleasure to see many blades, none in tortoise until now.

This set was amazing both in completeness and being tortoise.

There are a couple members here who have a pair, and perhaps another one or two with a single one. They are indeed spectacular to behold.

Seven seems insane. While very impressive, if I could somehow cut down to 7 razors for a set, they would all have to be different and unique.

I would/could never have only seven and all of them alike. If I had to have "only" 7 they would all have to be different

Here's a pair of simply stunning MK31s:

I have a set of MK32s which are going off to mycarver for a clean up. If they come out looking like these, I will drive out to PA just to give Mark a handshake and a hug.

Wow! That's quite a set. Though, like Doug, I don't know if I could "Only" have seven of the same razor. Heck, I'm only now up to seven razors.....my wife calls it overkill, I call it a pretty good start Biggrin

Very nicely, I gave each one a JNAT finish on a different stone.

I really would like to get an Ivory MK32 to complement the Turtle one in muh bathroom.

Congrats on convincing the person with the full set to let go of it. I was trying to find that man the other week to see if I could pry it from him, but my search came up empty. Looks like you already beat me too it!

Ivory clad MK32s can be found.


Not me to convince anyone to sell anything though

Yes, but a few people in Belgium and Sweden have them.

I want your tortoise shell ones.

I can't stop opening this thread and going through the pictures.

You lucky devil.

Only thing that would make it better is if it had the rounded point:
