    The blade says, "Kon'nichiwa",
    but the scales say, "USA!"

    Nice work. Are the scales flat on the sides with a bevel made using a router? Or how did you shape them?

    That is what SRP member Frans does with his biz called Art Razor. It like a community of craftsman, each contributing their particular skill, with a stunning end result.

    Rough work with a belt grinder, then by hand.

    The razor arrived today. The scales look even better in person, the blue has a sparkle to it which goes well with the steel. Overall excellent workmanship. Stefan is a true artist.
    Kudos to the wife who chose the scales, I would have gone with something plain probably
