    Vandalism!


    How could anyone take a dremel to a classic razor such as that! Unheard of! The society for the preservation of antiquities will surely be notified!





    Or so I've heard!


    As a fan of razor modification, I fully applaud your work! Clean, crisp lines. You have taken that 19th century razor and brought it fully into the 21st century, and perhaps a bit beyond!!!

    Excellent! I look forward to future works!

    I must have missed this thread earlier.

    Brad, that's a fantastic job with the razor, it looks great. I really enjoyed the step by step photos and explanations too.

    That is exceptional work. I never could have looked at the razor in its original condition and seen the finished product.
    Truly Outstanding!

    I honed it up tonight, along with 3 other razors..and when I was in the bathroom, I reached for it first... I ended up having half my face done before I remembered I had 3 more to test. hehehe. It took an amazing edge.




    Oddly enough, my favorite razor of the batch was the faux abalone Joseph smith that I chopped down to 2.5". It was an absolutely phenomenal shaver, a perfect size, and a pleasure to strop and maneuver with.

    Too bad its the only one that I've already sold. hehe.
    Is the faux abalone the blue one? That's a beautiful material. Where do you get stuff like that for making scales? I know of several sources for nice woods, but have never looked for other materials.

    Thanks in advance

    And that razor is gorgeous! I like the more classic looks myself, but I don't think there is anything wrong with what you did to that old W&B.
