    Original Factory TI http://www.straightrazorplace.com/fo...ish-point.html


    This is custom scaled in Molten Metal acrylic with a black acrylic wedge...

    I took the mixed metal theme throughout the scales, the wedge and pivot pins and washers are layered in Brass and Silver with NiAg pins and triple stacked brass, SS, brass bullseyes...
    The center pin is also bi-metal the pin is brass and the center post and outside conchos are silver...
    Note the way the razor now sits pretty for pictures on the same glass base as it was on originally, the scales are now even and centered...

    If you look very, very, close you can see that the TI rounded Spanish point has been squared up to a point that I like much better for more exact trimming...

    Real nice Glen. Those scaler really compliment that killer looking blade.
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.
