    Thanks guys, Bruce, I just recieved your new tool list and there are No,s 2, 4 @ 8. Your email address has my order already (hopefully I will be first in queue) TinkerTailor, In the catologue the hollow edge shaves are Dixon's dated from 2013. Dixon are no longer trading but I will try to contact them and order if available, just need to figure out how to order in German. Cheers Frederick

  9. Dixon hollow edge shaves

    Hi all, Could anyone help please, I'm searching for Dixon hollow edge shaves No.'s 1-8 maximum or at least No' s 2, 3 & 4. Sometimes the tools are not stamped and must be original not "Dixon style". cheers
  10. Hollow edge shaves

  11. Hollow edge shaves

    Hi both, Thanks for your feedback, I bought a set of 8 from 'Abbey England' which where in a Dixon style. These were shocking, when I sent images for a refund the reply was "whats wrong with them", I got a refund and Abbey England received their tools back. Abbey's service is excellent however the 'Dixon style' did not work. Maybe theres a different old feller somewhere else making good ones. Thanks again for replying, in the meantime I continue to search. Cheers
  12. Hollow edge shaves

    Hi all, I live in the UK (near Nottingham) and just missed out on buying a set (1-8) of hollow edge shaves from Dixon 's as they had gone intio liquidation. Luckily I had bought a large set of slim-line pricking irons 6mths before. Is ther anyone out there who would sell or consider swapping for other Dixon tools? See image below for a No.1 hollow edge shave. thanks John aka "Woodentop"
