    I printed to a normal piece of paper in landscape and selected "actual size" in the scaling (which is similar to printing at 100% zoom).

    Alternatively, if you can't find these printing adjustments, you can always print, then check against an actual ruler to make sure it is the proper scale.

    Good afternoon,

    I'm new to straight razors and straight razor shaving. Would it be possible to send me a PDF version of your chart, it would be most helpful to measure my purchased straight razors. My email address pieerik@gmail.com.

    Thank you in advance,
    Pierre

    If you look through the thread, you should be able to find a link to the PDF. If I remember right, it's in there somewhere.

    I recently printed out some grid paper that has 1/8 inch squares so I can tell how wide my straights are b/c I know some people advertise 6/8 and in fact it is smaller than that. Or it depends some people measure from the spine to edge and some start a little further down. Either way it works great, just have to make sure your printer isn't set to rescale the grid like "fit to size" option will probably shrink it some.
