    Lightbulb 7/8" custom kamisori with inlayed handle

    Hi Guys!

    This is my latest kamisori. It has two disting features. Double hollow grind and inlayed handle. Neither was too easy to do. I hope you will like it.

    • O1 tool steel hardened to HRC 61
    • ~7/8" (23mm) wide blade
    • 65mm cutting edge
    • Double (half) hollow grind
    • Mirror polish blade, fine-satin hollow grind
    • Horn inlay with copper and brass pins

    Holy Cow, Gregg, beautiful work. It's the first full hollow fixed blade that I've seen, and it comes with a smile. Very nice.

    I have tried several different Kami's but they were not western grinds, I would be curious how one shaves compared to a eastern grind.
