    Default Pradier Paris, France

    I posted a picture of this blade a few weeks ago looking for information. You folks were not only gracious enough to provide information on the maker but pictures of a 2 razor set with bone scales. All I had to start with was the blade and the pivot pin and its 2 collars. The collars were domed copper and the pin was steel. I turned down some copper washers and domed them on a dapping block to replicate the originals and used nickel silver pins. Scales are bone and copied from the picture. A difference in my blade is the location of the pivot pin hole in the tang. The 2 blade set had the hole located what looks like about 3/4" from the end of the tang. I finished the blade faces and tang with a matt finish and mirror on the back of the spine. The tang is very thin and tapers to .020 at the end.Name:  P1010698.jpg

    Gorgeous stub tail.
    Great job on the pins and washers, nice contrasts.

    Great job.

    That bone is about the whitest I have seen. Did you use a bleach or something else to get that color?

    Thanks for sharing
