    There is actually. it can be quite a pain to maintain an edge with a bevel that size, so, once I got it shaving with 1 layer tape, I put a 2 layer tape microbevel with a few passes on the 8k->coti->YG Escher.

    It all comes together like it was meant to be, well done.

    How many sets of scales did that block yield?

    MJC, one. There is a possibility of another set; but, I'm sending the remaining material back to the customer and I won't be finding out if I'm right

    Beautiful, Brad. I love it. Why such small pins?
    I love the smell of shaving cream in the morning!

    Honestly, I don't know, I just felt like it. LOL. I actually had a customer in the store, and I asked her what would look better (holding up two options).....she chose brass versus silver (yes, I had a woman shopping in my store...lol). Sometimes I just make decisions like that on a whim, once it is done, it is done. I think the small washers get out of the way of the ivory, which is the star here.

    Very nice, usually I like my blades polished nice and clean, but the theme worked out very well, great job!

    If I could trade my olfactory senses, smelling that rotten smell for the remainder of my life only to shave with that beauty, I would... Actually, only if I could call her mine! Great job!
    Sippin' on some slurry.
