    Just to stay in step with Jimmy who posted both his beautiful Snake in snakewood and his Livi-Takeda damascus I'm going to use this tomorrow. A Livi-Takeda damascus in snakewood (pic stolen from Lynn)

    Thanks for posting that video Howard; his Damascus steel is stunning. As a shaver and collector (although somewhat new), the price tag on this caliber of craftsmanship seems well warranted. In consideration of prices I'm seeing on eBay these days, I find it difficult to ignore such rationale: “instead of forking-over X amount of dollars, I’ll just save a little extra and own a custom work of art.” To illustrate, I'm writing this and looking at an eBay listing for a NOS Filly Doble Temple (#13)… nine hundred dollars! I thought I was paying a lot for this same razor just a few years ago when Tanowa (who I’d vouch for any day) charged me under two hundred. Her razor and its box were in mint condition. Obviously the purchaser determines the value of a razor—as it’s frequently stated on these forums; but considering that out-of-production razors are sold with warped scales, an intrinsic potency to cell rot, and in some cases of restoration, hollow grounds/singing razors are reduced to brittle compositions, it seems logical to refrain from jumping on the next Buy It Now Puma Gold and secure the means for the likes of a Livi. Sorry to rant, I think the eBay listing set me off…

    Well, to answer the original question (and while I never even held a Wacker) I'd say the Mastro Livi new grind I have is a great shaver. Coincidentally, my last shave last Saturday was with it. I got it from Lynn, and here's a pic I took the day it was given to me:
