Now I'm pretty lucky when it comes to hunting down certain NOS Japanese razors, but If truth be know I've been trying for years to find a NOS King Pelican with absolutely no luck not even a sniff, yes I've seen them in nice condition and even close to NOS but not quite there by my standards, well after a long wait this one finally dropped in my lap today a NOS flawless King Pelican and I'm over the moon I can't wait to give her a run out in the next few days, she will naturally have a little run over my finishing stone and stropped before but I've finally got that elusive Pelican yesssssssssss!

Congrats Jamie on the sweet looking Pelican!  Don't lie, I bet the only time you've put that thing down was to take some pics of it wasn't it? Biggrin

That's beautiful.  I need to come over to the UK so you can teach me how to hunt down gems like this.

Thumbup  If this razor were manufactured today, it would be among the customs—heck, it would even rivals a lot of the customs out there. I love the clad tang/tail pieces.

Great find Jamie, I just had a chance to hone one of these last week for another member, the steel is very good. I'm sure you will enjoy it immensely!
