    Default A little Faith

    Here is an interesting razor I bought as part of an Ebay lot. I have seen the brand but never the model. Any one ever seen one? After showing it to a Preacher friend of mine, he bought it on the spot.

    Never seen it and I would have bought that in a heartbeat. That design on the tang is known in the world of tattoos as "Rock of Ages". It was a hymn written at the turn of turn of the last century by Augustus Toplady. That image,IIRC, first appeared on the cover a periodical with the sheet music for the hymn and quickly became widespread on calenders and such of the period. It became a tattoo icon and many of the old time tattooers wore that design as a mural on their full back.

    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    Sounds like I could have gotten more than the $20 that I sold it for but everyone knows you don't want to cheat a preacher. lol Nice tat by the way.

    Not mine, I actually have the ROA tattooed on my entire back as a mural. In the industry we call it a back piece.
