How the Ugly Duckling Became a Beautiful Swan

Last month, in a forum about shaving, have been published a series of very negative comments about Mastro Livi razors and quality. It has evidently been a deliberate act of bashing without proving a word of what these persons were saying. I do not want to talk about this here: those who want to know more can read Mastro Livi's response in his website. I want to talk about this fabulous and beautiful straight razor instead. Let me say this is the straight razor the former owner was complaining about in this shaving forum and returned it to Mastro Livi and asked him to discard it. The razor was severely damaged by an improper and very bad honing. Mastro Livi reground it, fixed the bad geometry this person caused with his very unskilled honing skill and gave this razor a new life. Because of the regrinding, the razor has now an extra full hollow ground - this makes it quite a great singer - the blade is unavoidably a little shorter than the original one, it is however a fabulous shave. This razor, before Mastro Livi fixed it, was a Club Razor 2016 and the former owner deliberately destroyed it and then tried to blame Mastro Livi for that. He returned it to Mastro Livi and asked him to discard the razor. Mastro Livi magnificently repaired it and - as he did not think selling this razor would have been honest because it is a used razor - he gave it to me. And I am very very happy - and proud - to own this beautiful masterpiece. Welcome to my collection, beautiful and singing swan! Forget about the ugly duckling you were and how the former owner badly mistreated you and reduced you in that shameful condition!
