Gentlemen,

This is Art-Razor Capitaine, a custom razor made in the Ukraine. The blade is an 8/8 quarter hollow in French point. I am unable to capture the sparkling shine on the blade. The scales are black and in buffalo horn. This is a formidable razor, big and heavy, and the shave is glorious. Sadly, my arthritis has flared up and the weight and the size of the razor have become a wee challenging for the thumbs, especially. I do not suggest the razor for a newbie. If you’re a pro and like big blades, this razor should be yours. The  Capitaine is in superb shape — the blade is so shiny that you might see a few miniature scratches here and there. New, the razor was $300. Your price is $245 shipped U.S. Paypal is fine. No trades, please. Thanks.

Your first and third pictures seem to capture almost a metallic sheen the color. Very nice!

The lighting in my shave den isn’t exactly photo studio quality. Actually, the blade has a dazzling polished finish. It is a gorgeous blade.

I meant the scales ... that's the handle, right? The polish on the blade comes through clearly in the third picture. Just a gorgeous razor. If I were into straights, I would have to consider jumping on this. As it is, I would say this razor is sexier than the DE razors from that-which-cannot-be-named.

Ah, my friend, how right you are.The shine on the blade is dazzling. Yes, the scales are the handle.

I know what you mean. Temptation, yes.
