    Default Genco in a new suit.

    I picked this one up a while ago, and a fellow member from Toronto just recently asked if I had anything laying around that would be nice....I thought of this. We chatted, and came up with Cocobolo, brass and NiAg pins. It had quite a lot of deep pitting in the hollows and on the spine. I was able to remove much of it, but got a bit hesitant to keep digging. Still, I think this came out pretty nice.

    ...and since we've had a bunch of comments lately on Arko, I thought I'd use it for a prop instead of my regular use of Cohibas.
    Thanks for looking. Name:  Genco, Cocobolo, 1.jpg

    Beautiful work on the blade and the scales. Wonderful prop as well.

    Well done! Two of my favorites, cocobolo and Genco razors. There is too little metal on hollow grinds to remove but the lightest of blemishes. As long as the blemishes aren't on the bevel they don't effect the shave. Enjoy this beauty when she comes up in rotation!

    Those scales are perfectly proportioned and look great. I agree with Joe, cocobolo and Gencos two of my favorites also.

    Beautiful! I like how the grain interacts with the overall "sweep". If you don't mind me asking as a noob to cocobolo, what is it finished with?

    I love the look of wood. Great job, very eloquent.
