OK, for all of you who aren't on the B&B limited edition list, don't despair! You can (and should!) go out and buy the regular plastic scaled, and satin finished LeGrelot and it will shave you awesome! Mine was not a perfect specimen. There is some kind of ding/divit (fairly deep) in the toe of the razor, and the honing bevel on one side had some sory of inward curve to it in the middle of about 1/4"-1/2" long. That being said, those are not show-stoppers, as this blade kicks some serious butt! Mine arrived nicely packaged and oiled up. The blade was not to my standards of being "shave ready", but some work on the lapping films and pasted hangers took care of that. Shaves nice and smooth, and seems more forgiving than a thinner grind razor. The pics turned out a bit fuzzy for some reason, but I think you get the idea of what this razor is all about.
