    Default Snailforge standard in Damascus and orange juma

    I think Orange and Damascus go very well together. This is O2 and 15N20 Damascus. The steel was made by Maartn Van Hattem. And the scales material is orange juma gem. I call this design the snailforge standard, because it's a no-frills design that still has some touches that makes it 'mine'. It's the shaving comfort I always go for, without outlandish design elements.

    That one is a real beauty. I much prefer the more classic lines but still with plenty of "Bruno" in the design. The Damascus and orange scales do go very well together. I think this one is my favorite.

    That orange juma is a neat looking material. That Damascus, wow, terrific patterning in it. And a classic shaped razor. Hat trick of happy shaving right there. The owner is a lucky gent.
    Well done sir..again...

    Nice, Bruno! The thing begs to be held in-hand!

    Someone could rub the toe AND heel under the windowsill!

    Some cool things goin-on.

    Beautiful work Bruno!

    It'll be a while before I have the funds but one day I will own (and shave) with one of your blades!

    Speaking of...do you do lay-a-way:rofl2

    That's a classic, signature design that definitely lets everyone know the blade comes from Snail Forge. I love the double thumb-notches, spine geometry, and especially the orange scales. And those spinky ends demand a shaver's full attention or a bit of muting as Sharptonn has already noted.

    I agree that the Damascus and the orange scales are a nice combination. Beautiful work!

    If that means: can you send me money for doing nothing until the amount is paid in full? Yeah sure.
    I never really understood what layaway is about. I know it is a thing in the US, but what is the difference between layaway and plain saving up for something and then just buying it?

    Lay-A-Way was often used to get buyers to purchase an item that is 'On Sale' or at a Reduced Price. Typically the buyer can have the seller hold the item for a specified amount of time and the buyer can make payments without any interest until the item is paid for.

    With that said, I haven't seen any outlets offering this for a while and I for one have never used it. It just makes sense to save up your funds until you can purchase what you want. But there again, I'm very old fashioned. Today's purchasing public would just whip out the credit card and say 'Charge It'! Then make payments with interest for the rest of their lives.

    Lay away was also a great way to claim dibs on items that might sell out before you saved up all the money to buy them outright.
    Did that a few times in the 80s myself..a certain used econoline van comes to mind.
