    Wow, nice going, Bill! How was the shave when you threw in the towel? You know, that's probably right up there with most Solingen razors, or at least not lagging by much. I think somebody here just got like 180 shaves from a Filly 14 but hey that's a Filly 14.

    The edge went from cutting well to tugging mid shave. I was able to finish but that was enough.

    You aren't as I would have pictured you. I didn't think that you would have a beard! Well, I guess you don't now.

    How is that camel bone to work with?
    Semper Fi !

    Well, as you would guess, it is very stiff. It must be thinned down quite a bit to have any flex. If course you can use a spacer instead of a wedge, but I like a nice flare-out in my scales. I haven't done anything with the bone yet. They are still sitting on the dining room table. Mrs Monster won't stand for that much longer though, and I will have to take them out to the shop. Bone can be very noxious and smelly when cutting or sanding but all the hassle is worth it when you are done. Next best thing to ivory, and most laymen can't tell the difference at first. They don't warp like horn does, either. I will get around to making some scales some day soon. I got a lot of other projects with higher priority right now. Got to have a brew day soon. Got to hone some more razors to sell. Got the Herder blades to HT and grind. Got to do some more work on the boat, got a pistol to build (.45ACP, 80% frame), got my ongoing day trading, and an ever growing honey-do list. So sometimes new projects take a while to get off the ground. But very soon, probably next week, I will make a few pairs of scales.

    Camel and giraffe bone are considered the best bone for razor scales because of their density. Cow or buffalo bone is a bit less desireable due to lower density but it has been used quite a bit. Horse bone might work, though I have never heard of it being used.

We don't have to like what we don't want to like if we don't want to.

    Then you got guys who just go along with the hate and howl in the chorus cause they are not actually familiar with the razor. When the proof is right there before their eyes, they can see and accept. They aren't true haters. You just gotta show them.
    I bought 3 Gold Dollar 66's for just messing around with honing and such. Yes, they're not as refined as the typical Solingen offering but in terms of actually shaving with them, they take an edge just as well as anything else. Blindfolded no one could tell.

    By the way, I always shave with just my right hand too. It's how I learned and I'm sticking with it.
    I switch hands. No biggie. When I wore a flattop, my wife couldn’t wrap her brain around me switching hands with the clippers as I cut my hair.
    You always a smart***?
    Nope. Sometimes I'm asleep.
