Folks, as much as I want to learn and use straights, I just have too many irons in the fire and not enough time to dedicate every day to using and learning the straight razor properly.

I have 3 for sale, the Shumate and Williams I bought from a member here, and the United came from Larry at Whipped dog.

Larry also honed all 3 recently and all have been used 3-5 times since I got them back. They shave like they did when I received them and I consider shave ready.

IF you do not have a strop, and wish to discuss the one I have let me know.

Prices include priority shipping to the lower 48, any other locations will be exact postage added.

Please PM with any questions and thanks for looking!

John Williams Damascus Sheffield Steel; Very high quality razors up there with George Wostenhom & Sons and Frederick Reynolds, but extremely scarce. My first str8 was a John Williams round point and I still have it. It took me 6 years to collect 4 more, all square points, this is only the second round point I've seen. Beside the ones I've owned I've only seen a 6 day set, a 7 day set and a half dozen other in 6 years.

The Williams is an excellent bargain and should sell fast. Rare indeed and smooth as silk to shave with.

The Shumate is a piece of long gone Americana. The fact it states St. Louis dates the razor to mean it was made no earlier than 1904, and the Shumate name itself (as opposed to changes made down the line, mean it was made no later than 1920. A 100 year old piece of American hardware with ornate plastic scales. Nice one.

I've loved every Shumate I've come across. Great steel.

The Williams is sold, Shumate and UC still available.

I am probably keeping the last one left for whenever I get the itch.
