    Default Le Grelot 360 6/8", L'Espagnolette 6/8", Biken japanese frameback

    Three more beautiful blades on offer.

    1. Le Grelot TI 360 6/8"
    Original scales, top and bottom jimped, blade excellent condition overall. No box.
    Centers well, no issues with the pins. Pictures here.

    Never shaved with it. Purchased from a fellow forum member in either B&B or SRP ca. 2011-2012.
    I assume it is shave ready but as we all know different people have different standards for the term 'shave ready'.
    U.S. $230 (North America), 180 (UK/EU).

    2. L'Espagnolette 6/8"
    This is supposed to be a cool blade, but to be honest I do not remember very much about it from the period I acquired it.
    I got it from an experienced member in this or another forum (SRP or B&B).
    May have shaved with it once, years back, and then put Ballistol on the blade and wrapped it in tracing paper.

    Video on the razor here: https://youtu.be/n9BuK5rqrF0

    No box, not sure if the scales are original. Centers well, no issues with the pins. Pictures here.
    Even after wiping the blade clean I still see traces or marks of Ballistol 2-3mm above the edge, I suppose these will be easy to remove.
    Likewise for the tang, at the point where it meets the end pivot.
    U.S. $110 (North America), 85 (UK/EU).

    3. Biken Japanese frameback **SOLD**
    Another fantastic blade which I received years back in NOS condition.
    Scales slightly chipped near the bottom pin, and hand-inscripted "No. 9" on both sides.

    Must be Swedish steel, width from blade edge to spine 22cm so I can only suppose this is 6/8"-7/8" or thereabouts.
    The spine and tang are pitting free. I have never shaved with the razor.

    Price to reflect the fact that the scales are slightly chipped. Pictures here.
    U.S. $85 (North America), 60 (UK/EU).







    Prices include shipping with tracking as well as PayPal fees.
    I ship from Athens, Greece.

    All my straights have been stored in humidity-absorbing paper, blades had Ballistol in it, and all articles were positioned in a plastic container full of desiccant bags. I stand to be corrected if the asking price or description are in any way not rightful or accurate. The above article is part of my straights collection. The substantial majority of the blades I possess were originally purchased from other fellow members in SRP or other forums. At the time I was not skilled in honing or sharpening so I was making sure I buy from solid fellow members and that the razors were truly shave ready.

    Very recent transactions (straights I have sold) have provided very positive feedback on the overall condition and sharpness of each article. Glad to provide more pictures or article particulars at request. Plenty of references in wet shaving forums since December 2009, so buy with confidence.

    Thanks for looking.
