Dorko 6/8" Near Wedge No: 43
I've deliberately been avoiding Dorko's for a long while as they are generally too expensive to get into something decent. There's still some beautiful ornate NOS Dorko's out there but they bring thousands of dollars. This one looked in good nick and was in my price range so thought was worth the punt. It's showing some wear and tear on the scales and some hone wear but generally in good condition. The etching is nice when the light hits it right. Looking forward to honing it up and putting it to work.
This one came from Japan and the Japanese always know how to package stuff. The razor was in paper in a bubble wrap sleeve inside it's own plastic case (in image), which was inside an envelope inside a padded bag.(y)
