    Cool Tuckmar in G10

    Love the way these shave

    No steel work

    Scales are Gold G10 @ .090" thickness
    Wedge is Double Black Linen Micarta @.050" at the end
    Pins and Washers are solid Brass

    Basically I was aiming to get it as close to the old originals as possible but using modern materials..

    Considering it slides right back into the original box it must be close

    When I actually measured the original celluloid scales they were .110" thick so I went just a touch less, their wedge was .030 at the end however, could not match that and get it right

    As always...... stunning! No stabilizers, bet this one really sings when it shaves. I have an Othello that is almost the exact same blade.

    That's beautiful work Glen. Where do you buy your G10 in the US? I can't find that color in Australia and the Chinese manufacturers want you to buy it in 100kg minimum lots - that'd be one heck of a lot of scales!

    That's my razor--I can't wait to shave with it. I bought it because the blade was in good shape, actually surprisingly good shape considering the condition of the scales. Looking at the pictures, I know I'll be quite happy with it (once I get used to the round point).

    This was the first time I dealt with Glen and would not hesitate to do so again--his work is great and he was a pleasure to deal with. Thank You.

    Really nice work on replicating the original scales Glen. Those turned out great!

    Very nice razor. If it wasn't already going to someone, I sure it would have sold fast. I enjoy seeing your finished work.
    That micarta has a slightly translucent quality to it. I don't believe I've seen that before. It actually seems similar to some of the old horn scales. Looks great.

    I've been wanting to see more of this. I think it looks great keeping the original shape/style, but using new/modern materials.
