Pros: Quality cannot be faulted
Just love these natural horn scales
Cons: Came shave-ready but not quite up to my desired standard (normal)
I bought this SR for about USD 160 + shipping & taxes in 2021. It was received well packaged with the SR wrapped in VCI paper inside its cardboard coffin.
As received, the SR was shave-ready but not up to my high standard. I put the blade through a full diamond pasted balsa strop progression (0.5μm, 0.25μm & 0.1μm) before shaving with it. All I could say was WOW!
This SR gave me one of the closest and most comfortable shaves that I have ever had.
