    Default Dorko Razor Blanks

    Griffith Shaving Goods has some unfinished Dorko 444 razor blanks in the rattler style.

    If you are a grinder and want to try one, the price seems quite reasonable.

    I bought seven off the bay a while back. Got close finishing one and got distracted and never went back to them. They hold an edge. Mine are 6/8 square point.

    They seem to have a very nice assortment of razor stuff.

    These have been around for 10-15 years. Seems temper is questionable and results would be a chore.
    Not worth the effort I think. Likely why they keep making the rounds? What are they wanting for them?

    Having had one in-hand, not worth fooling with. JMO.

    I still haven't done anything with them. No time. When I do, I think I will HT and temper one, then grind it and one as received, for comparison. I don't remember how many I got, probably 10 or so, so I can play with them a bit. I agree, probably nothing particularly special, though, apart from the brand stamp.
