    Arkansas Love...Let's see those Arks!

    It's like 7 5/32x1 29/32x1 5/32 and it is sort of cut slightly lopsided in both axes. It didn't show any signs of upkeep or heavy use really besides the dings. It seems sloppily dimensionally for norton.

    Coticule love... show off your rock

    It has really heavy draw. I used to have one slightly under 5x2 I sold to a friend that looked similar to this but was glued. The bbw had lots of pinhead white dots.

    Toggle Inflation?

    I have a feeling they are charging final value fee on the sales tax they collect that we obviously never see in our money and not saying so. If they are there will probably be a class action someday

    Just outnof lapping. Looks like a piece of wood. Natural combo. Not really hard at all. Came in an ancient paddle.

    Toggle Inflation?

    Inflation isn't helping, nor are ebay's filthy lies about lower fees under managed payments that actually seem a twinge higher somehow. It seems like people are factoring this into asks lately

    What do people think of cast steel + Restoration

    My early razors with cast steel have been all over the place as far as hardness. Some have been maybe a step soft vs typical Sheffield steel, others similar, while some have been surprisingly hard.
