He's not the only one here that does incredible work but his blades definitely stand out. Good luck and can't wait to see what you decide on.
    Max Sprecher sent me some price quotes recently and his razors start at around $500 for custom made. I don't know if I've seen vintage restores for $300 or less on his website.

    Ok, thanks a lot for the imputs, i think i will ask my wife for the hartsteel 7/8 cocobolo, square point polished finish as i think its more resistant to rust. Is 7/8 too big for under the nose? Im have a dovo bq 5/8 and i think it is small. The store when i can get it in canada also have a 6/8 SQ in stock but its satin finish and black resin. Your experisnce with a 7/8?
    Thanks guys.

    I shave under the nose with mine to trim the top of my 'stache. This is a HUGE razor, but I find it to be my favorite at the moment. It seems very capable to me.

    I will warn you though...I have only two Harts, but both of them have very unimpressive scales. They look good in photos, but they do not pass muster under heavy scrutiny. You are paying for a great blade, and mediocre scales. That said, I will probably be adding a third Hart at some point...I like them THAT much

    Woah! That razor is not worth the coin he wants. Alot of his blades are crazy high price

    japannippon on ebay has beautiful razors, some in excellent condition, some well priced some not so much. I regret to say this, but his use of the term Shave ready is misleading. It seems obvious to me that he gets his razors honed by a knife sharpener.
