    I really like this colour of g10, perhaps an idea for some new scales methinks. Great work as usual and amazing addition with the grommets, completely in chracter and perfectly placed. Congrats on a super stellar piece.

    Hi Max,
    Very nice ...I like the "quartet' of holes in the scales...any functional significance to them?

    The razor itself needed an Army theme. I spend a while tinkering as I was asked to keep it army, rugged, sturdy, jeep, outdoors styled but at the same time keep it traditional, classic and functional. Nothing better than G10 Olive Drab tapered with black G10. Hardware for the washers and rods are SS and silver nickel. 3 gromets are silver nickel and one is brass.

    Unless they nuke the place this razor can withstand some punishment. It's rock solid build to last.

    Honed this puppy up and like all Gencos they take a super edge.

    Enjoy.
