    Found a damaged Dorko 14 blade with perfect scales. Lucky me. Got this beauty back in her proper dress.

    As has been said by many others.. Great work!
    It is probably me just not paying much attention when a member has posted a pic of their Dorko 14 but i cant recall ever seeing one before Austin's here and the few others that you guys just showed.. Is a Dorko 14 blade quite rare?
    Thanks, Scott

    Scott, I am by no means an expert on Dorko 14's. I have lusted for a Dorko 14 after acquiring several Filarmonica 14s. I was especially intrigued about a Dorko 14 after reading about the "14 club" thread in this forum. In that particular thread, and on other forums, there is a lot of discussion and speculation where the 14 blanks were forged and why they are so popular. I believe the Dorko company could still be in business and they make a fine, high end product, sought after by wet shaving enthusiasts. The Dorko 14s are probably no longer made but seem to very collectible. They are great razors. I will not be parting with mine any time soon. Several other SRP members have one as well. Thanks for your comments. Austin

    Hey Austin.. My only 14 I have is Ulrik's version in the Koorat 14.2 and like you with yours its not leaving my possession anytime soon.. Superb shaver. After reading this last post of yours i did a forum search for 14's.. I did find that as you said many makers bought those blanks and turned out 14's... A lot more than i knew for sure.. I would like nothing more than to add a few more to my collection of SR's but they do not stay for sale long or they fetch a premium price..
    Thanks for the info brother!

    Scott, Koraats are great razors and still have a 14.2 on my wish list. I bet it is one of his better sellers. Believe it is priced well too, very reasonable IMO. I have one Koraat and like it but may sell it to pay for one of Ulrich's 14.2s. They are magnificent looking razors. Something to pass on at some point.
