Selling my Discommon Carbon Fiber 6/8 straight.

Milled carbon billet (Aerospace grade)


Rare, only 10 produced.


Z-FiNit nitrogen steel blade.  Hand ground by Joseph Bowen.  Blade has a "dual concave grind" that supposedly has enough concavity to allow traditional honing (though I've never tried)

Razor has literally 4 shaves on it following its original hone by Eric Engle.  The spike-point just doesn't agree with me and I feel like I would never actually hone it myself, but rather always need to send it out for fear of damaging an otherwise gorgeous piece of steel.

Retail is $1,200 

Selling for $650 CONUS


PM if interested, and please don't tell my wife how much I spent/lost on this thing.

I've been looking at those lately, and they look like fantastic razors. Unfortunately, they are way out of my price range, even with your very generous offer. Good luck with the sale.

Thank you. If it was a round point and I wasn't afraid to hone it myself, I'd have it buried with me.

I'm sure that he would make it into a round point for you. I'm not much on sharp points, until I run the end of the point ever so slightly on the side of a hone. You can't see it without a good loope or a microscope, and I stop worrying about slicing an ear off.
