    Default A bit of Custom fun

    So a while back I was at Dllandry's house making some strops. He handed me a razor to restore for him, and then gave me a second one. The second one he gave me had a monster crack. About a third of the way off the heal, and about 3/16's long. Sort of in a place where you can't really grind it out without it just functioning as a nice letter opener. So I though maybe I'd try something.

    I've been fiddling with it for a couple weeks in between other restores. Five minutes here, five minutes there.

    Here's a series of pics showing what I came up with.

    Thanks for looking.

    @Baldy - Thanks for the inspiration man!

    Amazing job. I'm really interested in the handle. How does it handle on those tight angles on the face?
