Given the Damascus blade and inlay that should have been relatively expensive.
Take extra care with that blade though. It will rust very easily.

It was $100. I figure a "good" electric shaver - Braun, Remington, Norelco, etc would have cost at least as much and I like the shave I get with a straight razor. Not sure I'll mention that to my haematologist next time I see her - the platelets are still an issue. After 20 years of practice I can operate one of these ambidextrously and not cut myself so I'm not worried but why get her going? One of the surgesons seemed a little concerned when I showed her how I could stick a needle in the dead area on my belly after my last surgery and not feel it. IIRC her exact words were, "You shouldn't do that", Of course some people felt I should let a doctor remove the staples too . . .

It is 30 years since grade school but I still remember how to look after after non stainless blades.

I figure an API CI-4+ oil with a TBN over 10 should be good for rust protection. This stuff is not recommended for extended skin contact.

It seemed like a good price to me, but I've bought some cheap tools over teh years and I've learned that quality ain't cheap. I bought a DOVO razor in 1991. I believe it was $70. It has a stainless blade and I've never got it to take or hold a useful edge. This new razor is very sharp and handles like I'd expect a quality tool to work, like the Sheffield steel I used to carry in the late 70s and 80s.

It is not inlay. The handle is made from solid Buffalo horn, Camel bone, and walnut and olive woods. It is surprisingly heavy for something you want to drag across your throat with fine control. The balance will take some getting used to. I probably would have killed myself If I had tried to use it three years ago, while I was weak and shaky from fighting the post-op infections from my bowel surgery.

I remember an algebra class in 1989 where the professor filled 5 or 6 blackboards with gibberish like that. He got to the end and the answer was a surprise. He started going back through his work and found a spot where he wrote minus sign instead of a "+", or maybe the other way around. He treated it as an operator rather than a sign indicator, which borked the rest of the proof. He tried to fix it but just ended up making a huge mess. He finally said something like, "the rest is obvious. I leave it as an exercise".

Condolences again on that and we all hope you recovery (nearly) fully.

Stainless steels cannot be made as hard as tool steels or some alloy steels. Lesser hardness means stainless steels don't hold as fine an edge. Rust-proof does mean they won't loose their edge as fast and start pulling while shaving. Nevertheless they start from a lesser point. . . . . unless one is willing to really spend for something like PH13-8Mo Condition RH950 or other superalloy.

I did something similar on a six page calculus homework problem. (Just that one problem that day.) My professor found a plus to minus conversion error on my part. Then a few steps later, I made the opposite error which negated my prior error. I got the right answer at the end. I was amazed he checked that closely.

Thanks, but my cancer is not curable. The best I can hope is a new chemo drug will slow it down. I'll know better in a few weeks, after my next appointment with the oncologist.

I have some knowledge of metallurgy and have done a little blacksmithing and flintknapping so I understand why stainless is not the best blade material. My pension keeps me going but I'm not going to be splurging on anything made of any "superalloy", that's for sure.


My DOVO razor is so soft and nicks so easily it is like shaving with hacksaw after a week or so of use. Even the texture of the strop seems to chew up the edge. This new one polishes out to a nice fine fin and cuts as well as I can reasonably expect. No steel blade is ever goint to compare to obsidian but I'm satisified.

Yeah, the KRAS gene mutation makes it resistant to most chemo drugs so it can only be managed, not eradicated. If any of the the tumours get too big and start to interefere with blood vessels or air passages in the lungs then we may try some targetted radiation to shrink them but that won't cure the disease, just keep me going for a bit more chemo.

I appreciate the consideration. Like I said in jusine's thread, it does help to hear (or read) good wishes. I've been in the position of offering such support a few times so I know it doesn't always feel like you're doing much but I'm happy to take what I can get.
