    Default Another alien2

    Another one done. 8/8. This time a French point. Scales are again Kirinite lava flow with a glow in the dark spacer. It's shaveready and oiled, the bevels are very, very small. The nice thing about krinite with different layers is that on the one hand it's a surprise how the patterns will coma out, and on the other hand you can control the pattern to some degree by careful sanding as the pattern develops.

    I've made a couple of this model so far. Some people might be reluctant to make multiple of the same thing. But the nice thing is that by making the same razor a couple of times at different points in time allows me to judge my progress in terms of a) efficiency and b) level of finish.

    Sweet! The scale material is the perfect dress for that serious blade profile.

    Agreed. I particularly like the way your grind follows the spine. Keep up the good work.

    Repetition fosters perfection, and there's nowt wrong with that.
