    Man, I laughed my ass off and enjoyed the hell out of that film even at such a young age. Gene Wilder quickly became one of my favorite under-appreciated leading men.

    Blazing Saddles anyone?

    I know there are tons of hilarious quotes, but this always good out to me.

    Mike, after I saw some of your razor resurrections I realized how appropriate that avatar was.

    The Mel Brooks movies always provide a whack of good one liners, most of them so corny, they cause groans and laughs at the same time.

    For example, when looking at the massive hardware on the castle doors, Gene WIlder says, “What a pair of knockers.” Everybody knew that was coming, but laughed anyway.

    This toasty old fellow.

    The Lancet is in better shape and just needs to be cleaned up a bit. I'm wondering what you'll think of the scales on the Lancet when you get it- they seem to be a bit on the small side for a hefty grind like that.

    I have been looking for a razor with the large gold lettering, hopefully in better shape!

    I've been hoping to find some of the less common grinds too. Feather edge, double stage, double concave. Never come across them though. Mostly 5/8" hollows and slightly larger wedges!

    I don't know if you've followed the What Are You Working On thread, (edit- just saw from your post above that you have) but I've seen Outback make lettering on scales look like new.

    I'm pretty sure the original scales on the Lancet were supposed to be similar to the 75 Cent with gold lettering. Someone has re-scaled it with a small set that has a tiny wedge. It works and centers properly at least.

    I've gotten lucky on Ebay in the last month or so. I never used to see the unusual ones either, but then a few have popped up recently.

    It's Alive!!! The Frankenmappin lives!

    Ol' Outback brought it back from the dead.

    Tomorrow: the first shave that thing has given in this century, at least. I'm not so sure it saw much action in the 1900s either.

    The Franken will receive much better care now, of course.

    I think the 75 may impress you. It did me, for what it was finished on. That i will gladly reveal, once you give your honest opinion on it.

    How it felt, while shaving. ( Pulling, too keen, ect.)
    How close it shaves.
    Your skin comfort afterwards
    Did the AS, burn/sting.

    I've tried this hone on several razors, with exacting results.
    Hope you enjoy it, as much as I do.

    The Lancet is finished on my true n trusted, B/G Escher.

    I'm calling it right now, boys. This mystery hone is going to be an old school barbers hone. Or an 8k Norton. Maybe one of those Chinese stones I've heard about?

    A Harbor Freight special?

    Piece of slate you found at the local quarry?

    (I figure if I cast a wide enough net then one of these guesses will be right)

    Suppose I'll just need to wait until tomorrow.
    sharptonn and outback like this.
