    Those are REAL purty. If it were mine to design I might have chosen different than green liners, but that is just me. But WOW that is perhaps one of the most beautifully scaled razors I have seen. Great work and gives me something to dream about (both because of the skill and the final result).

    I'm with coachshaller in that I think these are one of the most beautiful scaled razors. I'm a sucker for mother-of-pearl. I think white cars are boring (I have two), but I think a pearl-white car is very cool looking, like the difference between red and candy-apple red.

    Your pictures are of a work of art. Very fine job. I am downright envious.

    FYI, pic one I'm using for wallpaper on my computer at work. It replaces a cool picture of Saturn.

Maybe it's the poor lighting the pictures where taken in, but as I twirl this razor in my hand, they really are a nice tight seam.

    I've been busy on this, and another project, trying to finish in time to get them back home enough time before Christmas. Now that getting caught up, can start replying to emails from some good friends, lol. Happy Holidays all.
    I have looked several times since. I still cannot find a suspected seam! Fit and Finish as well as panel placement have rendered a one piece look. Better than ever! I feel there is probably some translucent qualities to the shell which is enhanced by the liners. I would think reds, blues and greens bring out the colors in the pearl, much as a basecoat. This green worked fantastic. Great work, Walt!

    Thanks for sharing, it looks great. I hope it shaves as nice as it looks.
    Why doesn't the taco truck drive around the neighborhood selling tacos & margaritas???
