Sigh... isn't she lovely?
Phew.... these TI's are a chore to photograph they are so bloody shiny.
Again, typical TI... gold work isn't the best, but hey.... usually when you buy a TI, you know you aren't going to be getting the best markings/gold inlays - still though, for a razor well over $200 - it's pretty agitating. Somehow the dummies managed to get a little gold at the tip of the razor - but again.... with TI - you kinda expect medeocre (at best) detailing.
This razor was originally labeled, and sold as a 5/8, BUT when you measure it - it is a full 7/8'ths - and now is being advertised/sold as a 7/8 at Classic Shaving... albeit for an additional $30 now This beaut has a reputation for being a wicked, wicked shaver, and many pros (Lynn Abrahms for example) feel this is one of the "gems" of the TI line. While I am not wild on the scales... and the razor feels really light (almost too light for my tastes) it really walks the walk. Tune this thing up - and you have your self a duck/puma/whatever creature eater. These razors really take & hold an incredible edge, and if you don't mind the light/weird looking scales (to each their own I suppose) this razor is both a thing of beauty, in form and function.
If you are looking for something with show and go... this dog will hunt.
