    No Phrank, I'm afraid if I post mine you will show us all of your's,and that would take all day and leave us feeling inadequate. Although I will post this one which has me puzzled.

    How bout a 9/8 or 10/8 blade? something that'll build muscle while you're shaving!

    Wow that WB looks almost brand new is it NOS? I am assuming the obviously authentic carbon fibre scales are a later addition.
    Would you be willing to part with such a speldid specimen?

    To me the 8/8 The celebrated FBU is the most iconic of W&B and probably of all straight razors.

    The Celebrated 8/8" hollow and the FBU versions (is there any real difference? ) is the one I like the most.
    For me what really sets that one apart is the grind and the blade balance.

    Sorry , it has been in the family for generations. It is said that my great ,great uncle obtained it from the footman of a Uyghur warlord, or from ebay,not sure which.
