    FS - Stanley 151M and 151M Round sole

    These are the malleable iron shaves. One has both front labels and one can still see the image of where the missing label was on the other.

    The flat sole one is not common, but the round bottom is even more scarce. Both of these are made in England, are in excellent shape, and have good blades made in England that are sharpened to 30*.

    Finding one of these flat sole gray shaves will take awhile and accumulating both the flat and round will be difficult. There are some 151 shaves that have had the soles ground round, but this one clearly has the round sole cast into the tool.

    According to Peter Robinson’s site - “This is a Malleable Iron version of the Stanley 151R round bottom adjustable shave. This shave and the flat bottomed Stanley 151M are believed to be the only malleable iron shaves made by Stanley.”

    Sold as a set they are $175, plus shipping.

    John, nice! Last year I was hunting for these. I ended up with cast iron for both, but it would have been nice to find the malleable iron versions. Doug, enjoy!
