    Lightbulb 7/8" custom straight razor with cocobolo scales

    I hope the owner happy to use this custom straight razor in France. The wood was coated with a very clean, light shellac. I like to use this natural finish for woods nowadays. This is the first time I made double hollow grind.

    Thanks for watching!

    • C125SC steel hardened to HRC 62
    • 7/8" (23mm) wide blade
    • 71mm cutting edge
    • Spanish point tip
    • Half (double) hollow grind
    • Mirror polish blade including the hollow grind
    • Cocobolo scales with brass wedge
    • Phosphor-Bronze pivot bearing washers
    • Brass wedge/spacer pin with brass washers
    • Adjustable stainless steel pivot pins
