Gold Dollar!

A friend gave me a Gold Dollar a month ago. While I have honed a few, I haven't shaved with them enough to be able to have my own opinion of their shave worthiness. (And, yes, I know they are reviled by some.) I am going to shave with my Gold Dollar a time or two per week for a long time, or until I have a good sense for stropping, blade stability and the like.

Just my own personal experiment...
 
6/8 I picked up this weekend and honed last night. It has LaVaL on the blade in gold , registered trademark underneath that, and a made in germany at the tang. I haven't been able to find out any more on it.
