Gentlemen,

This is the legendary Swedish razor C.V. Heljestrand, an 11/16 blade that's as sweet as they come. The pins are tight and the  blade closes center. The razor shows minimal signs of age. It's a handsome razor that is perfect for the newbie, and a good change of pace for the pro. The razor is shave ready. The price includes U.S. shipping. Paypal is fine. No trades, please. $115.

If I still shaved with a straight, I would be all over this.  Nice razor.

It's a sweet one, yes, Johnny, and a fine shaver.

Ah, my friend, thank you for the kind words.
Yes, these are great razors. I had an MK 32 some years ago and it sparkled, but I gave it up. To this day I kick myself.
Anyway, this one on the BST is a really sweet shaver. You're right: good steel, fine production and, if I may say, quality honing make the razor a winner. You can't beat the price, of course. It's just a wee bit small for me, as my tastes run to 6/8, 7/8 and 8/8 blades.
