Well I have been wanting a 3/8 slim razor for some time now for doing intricate trim work around the ears and such without having large blades to obstruct my view.  So I purchased a Franz Glanz Salzburg-Gnigl. from Revisor direct and awaiting delivery now.  Can't wait to get my hands on this little blade.

How tough will that be to strop ? I have seen this on Revisors Site but look pretty narrow I would be afraid I would roll the edge to easily.

Also keen to see this size. Let us know how easy it is to use and if it met your goal of getting it where you needed it.

Still awaiting it to arrive.  Yes, it will be much harder to strop and will need to be done with ease of course.  I just need something to do the intricate work around the ears and neck line with a much slimmer profile.  This should be the ticket.  I will post a picture and report once it arrives.  From Germany/Revisor I hear about 10 days.  It has been 8 days today.  So I hopefully will get it by weeks end or maybe Saturday.....fingers crossed.

The razor must have known I was posting about it!!!! Well the pictures aren't the best being from a phone but I did not feel like getting out the camera and equipment to take pro like photos!!!!

I placed it in comparison to my PRC Leviathan which is a 6/8 razor.  This razor is quite petite and was not very sharp at all from the Revisor company.  But in their defense, these are not made by them but this particular razor was made by Dovo and they just a seller.

So here is the little beast and I did put it to the hones of 4k/8k Norton progression then to the Thuringian then to the Naniwa 12k as a final and through the strop progression.  It is now a little biter for sure!

Shaved last night with this razor or used it might I say to do my upper lip and back neck line.  It performed well and my results were BBS.  This razor was relatively easy to strop as well unlike what I was expecting.  So in all for $52 new delivered from Germany by Revisor..............I am quite pleased.

Great job. I tend to favor 6/8's and larger but now you got me convinced to consider a smaller razor on my next purchase.  Thumbsup

Dachsmith it is definitely a great little trim razor to hit tight areas!  I would recommend anyone that straight shaves to have a 3/8 or even a 4/8 in their stable of shavers for sure.

I noticed you said you used it for your neck line.  Did you do this yourself with a mirror.  I can do my neckline with a cartridge when straightening up my hairline.  I've used a DE a few times.  But, I would think using a mirror and a straight would be much more difficult.

No way!  Just touch and feel!  When I try using a mirror and get all thumbs and cut myself!

You could easily I think.  It is just a light razor and to me a heavy beard or tough beard would make it harder possibly.  I really think these sized razors are better for small trim areas once you get near the beard of mustache to do intricate work.  So you could use the bigger blade to do the work horse stuff then use the smaller blade for the area near what you are trying to detail.

I routinely close my eyes to shave because I am a all feel person for the most part with a straight.  I visualize seeing it and do a better job.  I can't explain it....just works for me.

I have a preference for 15mm full-hollow razors. They give me me quick and easy shaves.
