I’m excited to add the Kai folding shavette to my rotation soon as well as the Irving Barber Company shavette. Both are sleek and use AC style blades. The Irving uses a DE blade too. Pretty dope. Anyone else enjoy using shavettes?
This is a beautiful 7/8 Shell frameback that was NOS when I bought it. The razor will need a slight touch up. It is in great condition with no rust. Pivot pin is snug. Comes with the box.
Asking $85 Shipped conus.
I have a 1 and 5K now and wanted to add another synthetic stone to my arsenal prior to the natural stone onslaught finisher. I would finish with a coti, Escher, Jasper, or Jnat. Is it safe to jump from 5K to a 10K? Just curious. Was wondering if I should get an 8 or 10K stone? Thanks Gents.

This is Tomo nagura slurry on a jasper finishing stone. Wow! The edge it produced was keen and mirror polished. I spent about 15 minutes working this bad boy slurry and finishing under running water. I have the finishing side lapped to a fine 800 grit. I was so giddy, I nearly spit my beer out...
