    Default " For Barbers Use " in Translucent Horn

    I was fortunate to receive a couple of these blades, and finally got around to doing one of them. It is a Full hollow. Blade was already polished with 80 grit greaseless before I got it, and I dint really want a Satin or Mirror finish , kinda in between, and I think thats how it turned out.

    Scales are Translucent Horn, however I wanted to pick a part of the blank that was a lot darker then the previous horns I have done. Wedge is Green/black G10 and Ill try to get a close up but the green really comes through which is kinda neat. Stacked washers of SS and Brass , with Nickel Rod, and added a third pin. There is still some fluff and lint from cleaning in the pics, but these things look pretty nice in person

    Oh and the shave, Awesome!!!
    Thanks for Looking guys.

    Very nicely done! It is hard to beat shaves from W&B's barber's use blades.

    That looks great. I like the squared off scales, they mesh nicely with the large blade.
