    Also an EMDE Bros, but I dont have a picture of it at the moment.
    I just sold my "Peter Hahn" because I needed money. It was one of my best shavers too.
    What a curse be a dull razor; what a prideful comfort a sharp one

    This is one of my favorite and best shaving razors.

    A Garibaldi made by Wusthof in Germany. It is a "singer". Loudest blade I own. From SOTD

    Ok, since I consider "Nogent" razors top notch by default, no Nogent here.

    My two best surprises :

    I seldom like hollow grounds. Initially, this japanese razor was a friend's that I restored. Accustomed that he is to very sharp razors made of insanely strong steel, he did not deem it sufficient, and offered me this same razor for my birthday
    It was indeed a little rough around the edges when I started with it, but the more I use it, the better it becomes.

    And, of course, there is "the kid"

    All horns and spikes, yet extraordinarily light and soft. Hence "the kid" (the animal). If I am not in my optimal state while shaving, I know that nothing can go wrong with this one

    Beautiful is important, but when all is said and done, you will always be faithful to a good shaver while a bad one may detter you from ever trying again. Judge with your skin, not your eyes.
