    I can see that razor with a set of thin & narrow scales in a "fixed blade" style rather than a pivoting straight razor style. I really love the tang.

    Cell phone close-up of the hollows of the wootz razor I am working on. The green specs you see are the remnants of the nail polish I used to protect the edge during etching. The pattern is coming out nicely. The final polishing after etching is close to finished.
    This is going to be an 8/8 wootz razor based on my ottoman design, with buffalo bone scales.

    Is that a finished edge?

    Of course not
    You can even still see parts of the nail polish that was on the edge during the etching phase.

    Beautiful steel, and nice total package, I really like your style of razor. I would love to get my hands on some wootz to play with and test someday.
