I received my Michael Waterhouse 7/8 smiley blade with flecked horn scales today. Photos don't portray the true beauty and workmanship of his blades. Just amazing. I have Jamie to thank for telling me just how great these razors are, as well as providing many useful ideas.

Thanks, Ravi. My first true custom, made to my specifications. The number of artisans in the shaving community is truly impressive, and part of what makes shaving so much fun.

A beautiful razor, right up my alley! I love those streaked horn scales.

Alas, I think I've waited too long to get a custom, and probably out of my price range at this point.

This razor has quickly moved to the top of my favorites. It is very well balanced and a joy to hold in one's hand. I love smiley blades, as they seem to maneuver well through the sagging neck line of someone my age. Overall, it's an incredible shaver, which just seems to get better with each use. Michael is a highly skilled artisan and is a pleasure to work with.
