What straight did you use today? Now with PICTURES

The top corner of your blade looks suspicious, you should check older pictures to see if the oxidation was there, if not it could be an early sign of cell-rot. It might be time for you to give a second shot at making scales.
Nice catch! Having recently encountered a couple victims, I wholeheartedly agree with you.
 

gold dollar 208, second time shaving with a straight so i don't have a clue how good it is.....
The GD 208 is a good SR. It hones up to a very acceptable shave-ready edge. When shaving with it, I found that its balance was rather blade heavy. This is due to the very lightweight scales. Most SR's when open 180° will balance near the pivot pin. The 208 balances near the shoulder.

Thanks for the info!
