    Default Joseph Smith Regrind in carbon fiber

    Here is a full regrind, i reground it using an 8" wheel. It has a mirror finish.

    Carbon fiber scales, G-10 weave wedge, expecting it to stand out a bit more, but, I ended up liking the understated look. Enjoy.

    Gawd! that is cool! If I understand, that would be a fine shaving blade with all that hot and cold! Hard as a rock and pretty! Thanks for sharing! The scales are amazing.
    Look at the Movember auctions in the BST!

    Wowwww Brad...Beautifully done

    I just can't believe that all that rust came out of the "initial" razor . What a stunning transformation...There's no trace of crud remaining. Unbelievable!!!

    Amazing job! I have been thinking about using the carbon fiber myself, had wondered why i haven't seen more of it as scale material. Was it hard to work with? What did you seal it with?

    Great looking razor

    Awwww...words just dont do this justice, I love that razor and its inspired me for my next restore.
    I fancy a Carbon/Kevlar weave set of scales, just need to find a nice shoulderless blade

    Thanks for sharing your work.

    Hello, Undream:

    That is an incredible transformation of a straight razor in the hands of a craftsman. Great work.

    Regards,

    Obie
