    Default Hot Rod Reaper

    Well if your strictly a "restore as original" kind of guy your not going to appreciate this one as much as the rest of us. My friend Chris wanted red and picked 1 of the shades I had on hand. The yellow I had for a wedge seemed to go best with the whole plan of an "Inferno" Reaper. The colors of fire. We already put a black 1 together for him last time so going completely hot rod with this 1 made sense to me.

    As evident from my less than perfect pictures I haven't had a lot of time to spend on razors the last 6 months. I want to thank Chris for being so patient and understanding and let him know how close he came to losing this razor. When it was done I started thinking all kinds of evil ways to keep it :<0)

    Nice choice of colors my friend and thanks for letting me be the one to put them together.
    Good judgment comes from experience, and experience....well that comes from poor judgment.

    I am normally a restore to original kind of guy but I sure can't fault the colours used on this one. The whole effect is very pleasing, well done.

    +1 on the normally restore as original, and +1 on really liking this one. Looks better than the original AFAIC.

    Can't thank you enough for the great work on this one! The colors came together very well and can't wait for it to "get" here.

    Well I usually sit in the traditional camp, however I do see the logic in breaking free in the case of cell rot prone scales. This is one of the things you have done a lot of, and have been doing them well. I too have been to busy for doing much razor or hone stuff. Oddly enough I seem to find the time to talk about it. HMMMMM. Nice job.
