    Default Wostenholm, 6/8 Barber's Notch.

    This came to me from one of our members. It's in an acrylic called "Blue Hawaii". Bone wedge, brass hardware, and as close to a mirror as I can get at the moment. Of course, continued practice leads to better results!

    Before I even started, the edge needed to be re-profiled and tested. The razor was "rainbow" all over, and I was worried about the temper. Once we knew the edge took and held I got the green light to complete the project.

    Thanks for checking it out.

    I bet he would roll over as too much time was invested in it.

    Old George was known to be real prick to work for from what I've read. His men sure turned out some awesome knives and razors though.

    Wow, love that blue. Very nicely executed, both the blade and the scales. Well done.
