    The advice I'd give a person with a 9/8 razor is that life is worth living.
    BigJim and bonitomio like this.

    Straight razor shaver and loving it!

    Yes. The razor was made by Abraham Knyn, Solingen.
    The Knyn family was in business since 1683.
    Abraham Knyn was born on 2 Jun, 1831.

    Just found this photo.
    Not exactly the same but the AK seems to be joined:-

    Oh my, oh my. I want the razor on the cover of Rasoi e Lame, Barbe e Baffi!

    I really don't care how well it shaves. I just want it!

    (I may have a thing for really old razors.)

    Manah, you are totally on my list of people to visit when I travel the world in search of razors.

    Thanks so much for sharing this with us Manah.
    Will add these to my list :
    Would you be able give your opinion as to the age of this razor?
    Judging from AKīs birthday circa 1860s perhaps?

    I have been wanting to find a BIG razor for a long time.
    I didnīt expect to find one here in Spain.
    Still waiting for a W&B 9/8.
    There is always something on the shopping list right?
