    I really like the wedge design
    Thanks G!

    I've been playing around with extending the base of the wedge a bit. It can be a bit finicky to taper accurately, but I've found that they look sweet when they fit. Hmmmm, maybe I got some firsthand knowledge about that with a WB of my own??

    If you taper first, then cut/sand out the swoop it will never be a problem again

    I saw it once on an old set of scales, and I realized that it also would act as a blade block if dropped or mis-handled and started doing them that way about 3 years ago.. plus I like the look

    Great looking razor and a very skillful resto job. I especially like your scale shaping and the white spacer in contrast. Ken

    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.
