    Default 7/8" straight razor with ebony scales

    Hey everybody!

    This is my latest work. A custom order in classic style but I tried to put in a few modern lines. I have never seen this kind of sandwich edge: one brass sheet inside and two horns cover it. I hope you will like it.

    • O1 tool steel hardened to HRC 61
    • 7/8" (23mm) wide blade
    • 70mm cutting edge
    • Mirror polish blade including the hollow grind
    • Quarter hollow grind
    • Horn wedge with brass sheet
    • Phosphor-Bronze pivot bearing washers
    • Brass wedge/spacer pin with stainless steel washers
    • Adjustable stainless steel pivot pins

    Very clean looking and love the brass in the wedge. A very suttle touch. Something to be proud of for sure.
