    Default a new Grelot in poplar scales

    Hi!
    First of all, many apologies for my so bad english.

    For my friend Siamois, member of the Coupe-Chou Club (french forum about straight razor)
    He bought a new grelot blade and ask me to scale it.



    I start with gold and brown plating the blade



    Puis la soie

    Spacer is with gold plated brass and elephant ivory.

    Gold plated washers and ivory painted pins.









    Many thanks to Siamois for his confidence !

    That is simply stunning!!!

    Wow, I like how you limited the gold plating... A perfect amount to make the razor classy without too much that can lead to some of the garishly decorated razors out there. And the wedge is just magnificent, honestly theirs issard should just hire you to make limited editions on their le grelots.
