About Straight Razors and steel?

If you are interested in straight razors, and the types of steel they are made from, please watch this excellent video by Tomas from Austria (aka ShaveTank)

Excellent information, very interesting, well researched video.

It also reminded me, there was a forum member who had a lovely Ralf Aust straight. We don't see them on the forum anymore.

Eish... the info here is a bit thin... the experience is totally valid... but dont use the steel theory explanations for anything...
