    I have been on the road for a while, and this set up will have been with me in eight hotel rooms, in five cities. It has been a fun trip. It will all come to an end soon.

    Had to think about what section to actually post this one in :D
    Workshop, HOTD, SOTD


    So I get in this razor, Basically "Here Glen it is yours, Keep It, Pitch It, Fix it, I just never want to see it again, dropping it makes me sick"

    Mint Dorko #14
    Big ole CRAAaaaaaaack :(

    [​IMG]

    So I do some thinking, if I just grind it down I am looking at a 6/8+ with that big #14 staring at me saying "I used to be an 8/8"
    I can do a heel cut away but Meh
    So I start drawing on it with my sharpie... I want the 8/8 size, it doesn't have a Double Grind with a Stabilizer, Hmmmmmm Japanese Slant with a bit more smile :)

    Head out to the shop fire up the 2x72 and hope I don't hear the "Tink" of death

    Get the slant in

    Work it out into a smooth Smile on the hones :)

    Testing a questionable Dark Blue Escher (left) against my Blue Green Escher (right) that yielded a smooth edge

    Having been on the road for a while this was my first change in shave gear for a while. It was pretty easy picking this one out.
