    Default Custom Restores - CV Heljestrand No. 9 1/2 - Spear #10 - Thiers Issard 1937

    This one is heading out to my good friend Erick/Ookla...
    Erick said to have fun and do what I wanted on this Swede...

    I started by polishing the blade out on the buffers, yes I swear it is the same razor that Erick sent me...

    For scales I chose a Dyna Blue acrylic and got a little wild on the wedge end design. when I thought about what color to use for the wedge itself, it finally it dawned on me, "Yellow" after all it is a Swedish razor
    I used bi-metal pins and washers to hold it all together...

    So from Eskilstuna Sweden, here is a No.9 1/2 CV Heljestrand Half hollow squared point razor...

    Glen,

    You need Max to teach you the ways of the camera and lightbox

    I'm sure those pics dont do it justice.

    Too cool!!!

    A perfect outfit for a swede. Telling you to have fun and do what you want always turns out well.

    For the record, that blade was covered in black stains when I sent it to Glen. It came out much better than I ever expected.
