Gentlemen,
This is the Joris gold in light buffalo horn. It's dazzling. The price is $120 shipped U.S. Paypal is fine. Thanks.

One of my personal favorites. The lighter handle makes it an exceptional shaver.

Thanks for the kind words Ray. The razor is beautifully balanced. Beyond that, though, what I find really striking about this razor is the silky feeling of the barrel-shaped handle in bone. It tucks comfortably in the hand like an ancient king's little scepter.

Oh yes, it is really pretty. Also, the silky feeling of the buffalo horn handle makes the shave quite pleasant. I will especially miss this one, but happy that someone else will enjoy it.
Stay well,
Obie

I'm hoping someone buys it before my resolve crumbles.
Alas, too many recent acquisitions...

Have faith, my brother. If you want it, grab it before it goes. I'm a sucker for beautiful things — and this one is beautiful. The first time I saw the razor I heard a voice in my head that shouted, "Oh, yes!" I grabbed it.
Stay well,
Obie

Ray,
That's how much I paid for it — $160. They are expensive. They are also stunning. Also, I use the straight razor predominantly, so the DE razors see little work. Since I also rotate both straight and DE razors, this one probably has had no more than five shaves, if that.
Stay well,
Obie

In my case, the broken bones inflicted by SWMBO would be remembered long after either. Tongue
