Nice review, Bub, and a lovely looking razor. Looks like it's got a nice weight to it too.
I'm currently using a German DE safety razor, a Muhle R89. I've had it for about 4 years now and use it 6 days a week.
Having a safety razor has completely transformed my shaving experience, from one where I resented the experience and the price, to one that I look forward to and smile at how much I'm saving.
That bronze jobber looks the dogs, Bub. I'm sure it'll serve you well.
