    Pic 2 looks like there is some streaking and variegation in the horn. I bet they are amazing in hand. Also that’s a cool old blade.

    Shaves as good as it looks, Tabac shave soap finished with Pinaud Bay Rum. I think it was made between 1820 - 1830 but i am definitely not an expert, I just shave with it.
