Arrived earlier than expected, shave-ready and with a beautiful custom note. This is my first ever straight razor, and Christopher made sure it won't be the last. Bit dissapointed with the strop size and the fact it's got no handle -it makes it rather difficult to properly strop for a newb. Other than that, outstanding product and service.

Agape - 7/8 Damascus, African Blackwood, Swayback, Tanto Custom Straight Razor
Damascus with deep Greek engravings along the spine on one side, and my maker's mark on the other.

I love seeing old razor styling enlivened with damascus and exotic woods. I was really taken back by the durability of Osage - no wonder it's used for iconic longbows. I highly recommend this wood.

::::::: Razor Condition Grades :::::::

We use a system of evaluating a razors condition according to the following:

Fair - Prominent cosmetic flaws, but gives a fine shave.

Good - Noticeable cosmetic flaws on the blade and/or scales. Pitting on surface metal. Moderate-heavy use observed through spine wear. Ideal for basic/beginner use.

Fine - Some cosmetic flaws observable, but not prominent. Light pitting in small areas. Moderate use as observed through spine wear. A higher grade razor for the beginner.

Very Fine - Few Cosmetic flaws observable. Little to no pitting. Light to moderate use as observed through spine wear. A nice razor for either the everyday shaver, or the collector.

Near Mint - Few cosmetic flaws. No pitting. Light use as observed through spine wear. A razor for high-end use, or the collector.

Mint - No cosmetic flaws from use/age. No observable use from spine appearance. A fine razor for high end use, or the collector.

New Old Stock (NOS) - Unused, in mint factory condition. Highly collectable, or for the gentleman who wants to christen a pristine vintage blade.
