    Default S.Colling &co straight razors

    I am interested in the 7/8 versions of these razors I have seen on ebay.
    Has anyone tried them & are they worth my time & money.
    Cheers

    From what I hear, he's been around awhile, making customs. Seems he's going to market, now.

    Supposed to be good, but I've had no interaction with his products.

    Thanks, I've since found out he uses the same blanks as boker &Ralph Aust.
    I've had a number of these razors pass through my hands & found them problematic for me.
    I think that the blades have too much flex for me . Although I tried different finishing hones & different angles to try and get the blades to give me a shave I was happy with I have sold all my modern razors& are now using a 5/8 extra hollow grind sheffield razor & a Thomas Turner 9/16 1/4 hollow and theseare giving me great results.
    I have tried modern & vintage thiers issard razors & found that the modern steel leaves me with irritated skin . So my quest goes on , but I find myself leaning toward vintage razors more & more.
    Cheers
