    Thank you! So its already colored like that, poured and all.
    I haven't seen anything like that in germany yet. Only unicolor.

    An awesome compilation: an old blade and a modern scale.

    Acrylic pen-blanks, that's interessing (wie heißen pen-blanks auf deutsch ) ... must be something like this...

    I have found that with my 7/8 scalloped back. The 5/8 No50 1/2 NOS ones i've honed have been a little more straightforward though.

    Enjoy. They'll make an awesome pairing if you matched the scale shape!

    Be very, very, careful there, watch the word in my description of the pen blanks.... "OVERSIZED".... Most of the pen blanks are 5 inches long, they will not work... you have to have the 6 inch ones for most of the razors out there.....

    That fella may a bit of a jump from your usual choice in size but 'variety is the spice of life'. Enjoy !
    Loving those acrylics btw.

    This is an 8/8+ #14 "Doble Temple" with ZERO hone wear, I polished it out and got rid of that gold wash and etch, and stopped at the stainless compound level on the wheels....
    The scales are acrylic with brass hardware....

    This one I made for myself today, I have been wanting one since I gave my #12 to my Brother in Law we shall see if I finally keep a personal razor over 6/8 size LOL
