    Very creative -
    Did you have a spacing in mind for those top finger/thumb notches or are they part of the flow of the spine?
    And I have a suspicion this looks even better in person...
    Thanks for sharing...

    Very neat design, looks as if it would shave with ease. Love the horn scales, great character and the molten spine is so raw looking. For some reason when I look at it I think pirates and old treasure maps...

    Very nice Bob. Let us know how the balance feels.
    May your lather be moist and slick, the sweep of your razor sure, and your edge always keen!

    Excellent looking razor, it's very creative. I think the shorter edges are underutilized. I have one shorty at the moment, and there is nothing not to like about it when shaving...
    I love living in the past...

    the top notches are designed for the fingers, I put that is a lot of my razor designs. Its all about the grip.

    Handling, stropping and shaving were all normal...with the exception...with the heel being further from the thumb than normal, it was awkward to place the heel on the skin in the intended place. That might be a deal breaker for any more of this design. Oh well!
