    Phenomenal work! Your razors are consistently at the 'top of the pile' of any of the newly made razors that I have seen... Just unbelievable craftsmanship!

    Thank you for your kind words!

    I have recently tried to go a step further and to make an extra full hollow bellied grind.
    To achieve this I have added one more grinding radius which results in a higher placed and thinner belly. The blade get´s even more flexible but is still not collapsing.

    No idea what these bellied razors shave like, but it certainly looks cool in the pictures.
    Nice work.

    That’s some craftsmanship! How in the world did that not just grind right through?

    Ulrik, How are the shaves? Any feedback to report?

    It can happen that I grind through, but not very often ;-) After some hundrets of razors with such a grind you get a feeling for it.

    This grind is very close to a "normal" fullhollow. The belly has not such an impact on the shaving behaviour. The most important parts are the thinnest part of the hollow grind which defines the overall flexibility and the last 1-3mm down to the edge. This part defines the micro flexibility torwards the skin and the whiskers

    Here is a photo showing the two areas:



    But normaly any proper fullhollow razor has at least a very subtle belly because the belly is automatically created while grinding a full hollow.
    Often the belly is then reduced in thickness by using flexible grinding wheels and leather weels with a special paste. This process is called "Pließten" in german. It makes the entire blade thinner and the belly is less visible, but it also rounds the edge area a bit. So a non rounded bellied blade is normaly a bit more flexible near the edge.
    Here is a sketch showing both grinds compared to a 1/4 hollow grind:



    kind regards,
    Ulrik
