    I really enjoy my Japanese razors. Right now it’s about half my collection.

    Second shave with it and the edge already had begun to deteriorate. I have stropped the razor with FerrOx and put it back into the cabinet for another year or two.

  5. It is so sad to see what Giesen&Forsthoff has become in the modern day .I own a Vintage Giesen&Forsthoff razor made in the 1920 -1930's .It is a very high quality blade that holds its own against top German producers in the day .Quality and beauty was the standard in the past .Now for the most part profit rules regardless of how we get there.Just like what has happened to the PUMA brand .Once the top of the German Razor world has be reduced to selling cheap junkie Chinese knife blades.Thank God we have a few dedicated professionals like Herr Aust and Wacker Razors keeping the past alive in some small way .

    In my country there's an old saying "äras den som äras bör". It translates: Honour the ones who deserve being honoured. My late father often used it and lived by it. I too do my best to do so. So after having written less positive remarks about the Timor Giesen&Forsthoff brand I today shaved with this quarter hollow vintage razor of the same brand and what a jewel in disguise this razor is! So please don't make the mistake of confusing the old razors with the modern ones.
