ZY straight razor blades are made from reasonable quality steel, they are one of the few manufacturers to offer a range of cheaper razors in carbon and stainless steel. They hold an edge pretty well and is preferred by some users over Gold Dollars as they do not require modification of the stabilizers prior to sharpening on whetstones. This razor has a "Grandslam' logo on the blade and is dressed up in Beechwood scales.It si quite a heavy razor at 76 grams, but its blade geometry and well placed jimps makes it comfortable in hand, we quite like heavy razors. The blade grind is half-hollow and is 70 mm long with a width of around 6/8, or just over 20mm. Although some don't align perfectly, we don't consider it to be a big enough issue not to carry their straight razors in our inventory, the pros of this razor, the primary being it's pricing, far outweighs the cons.Please ask for more info or pics of the specific razor you will receive should you be concerned with quality issues as all of them are not exactly the same. This razor comes with a light brown leather pouch.
