New Catch.

Mon Apr 22, 2013 5:05 pm

Here is my newest buy. Thought it was in slight poor condition.. Turns out she cleaned up very well and has the full size left with no honewear. Could not be happier :)

just took some fast photos, need to take better.

MAGNUS <> Congraulations! Looks like a super hollow grind?

Is that a Spanish razor? If so, is it Spanish steel, and if so, how is Spanish steel regarded in relation to hard Swedish or soft German?

Yepp its a spanish razor. Filarmonica is known to give great shaves, pretty easy razor to hone so i would say kinda soft steel but at the same time hold the edge very well. this model is ice-hardened there for calld SubCero. only bad thing with the filarmonica razors is the price :) i got this one for 200euro (very low price) in a gamble of how good the condition was cuz pictures of it was very bad.

They are indeed huge and I like them. they are on the softer side, so a 30k edge wouldn't go well, but most naturals give a nice edge. I always hated the scales myself, but you forget about that really fast when you shave with it.
