I picked this beautiful razor up last month.  It was purchased brand new from http://goo.gl/Fw4vZ3 for $560.  7/8" French Point.  This is a simply stunning Western version of the classic Japanese Kamisori style razor.  I simply cannot use a blade of this type.  Blade has been used one time and has not even been stropped, other than by Robert himself.

The tang has cocobolo cladding with a matching cocobolo stand.  The standard purist (the step below the Regal series) retails for $480, while this Regal version retails for $560.

$450 shipped via Priority Mail.

Thanks guys. It honestly shaved like a champ, but my fingers / hands just cannot deal with it easily. I hate taking such a loss on it, but if I am not going to use it, it needs to find a better home.

In one of my hundreds of emails (yeah we talk a lot) Robert told me the Purist line is his best seller. I am hoping someone will want to pick up the Regal for less than the standard one. IF not, it will sit on the shelf looking pretty. Biggrin

I know I say this every now and again, but if I didn't suffer from a VERY serious case of SBAD... I'd be all over this. Rolleyes
