    Very nice! Do you think that this one was ground thinner than a hollow barber's use? Or just a name?
    Look at the Movember auctions in the BST!

    Looks great, Glen. (As they always do)


    Fess up now. That rocking at each end is just from that earthquake storm you had up in Idaho, right?

    The real funny part is that I didn't even hear about it

    Challis is near 400 miles South of me though Idaho is pretty big North to South

    Glen! You my friend have once again left me drooling like a dog that's been running a coon for hours!

    I'm really hesitant to now show my latest 'meager attempt' but I will still do so if only for sharing the History behind the razor.

    You have a talent, a 'gift' that can't be taught or learned as it truly is a Gift!::::

    I was wondering why you don't post your work anymore, glad you decide to share it again !

    I am not sure, but I think I see on the 4th pic from top down that the wedge has a little curve to it (narrower at the pin) when looking from the wedge towards the pivot?
