    3,94 inches width, and 23,6 long

    We size our razors in 1/8th inches

    At that size you could say it is well worth the money. Just a fantastic piece of art.

    As some have inquired as to the sizing (and I am also interested): Would it be possible to put some 'perspective' in a photo; such as some kind of ruler either metric or inch? To represent the height and length of the blade and scales

    Thanks for considering :

    Well, that was the seller's description. I guess international sending would cost quite a money, but it would still be less than $30K

    I'll ask for sup' pictures

    I just phoned the man and asked for sup' pictures, he's going to send some to me.

    I checked with him, 10 centimètres width, 60 centimètres long.
