    Cool 8/8 Friodur in Feathered Horn

    This is one I just finished up, built to spec...

    Scales: Polished Buffalo Horn done with 3M Cloth 400-600-1200-4000-6000-8000
    Wedge: Filed Elephant Ivory
    Pins: NiAg
    Washers: Stacked SS except the center with only a single small SS washer
    Center Post: Nickel
    Honing: Naniwa SS 1-3-5-8-10-12

    I took the scale blanks down to just under 1/8 inch (.108) after I contoured the outside, gave it a really nice feel in the hand and balanced it right to the center of the tang...

    Sweet work as usual Glen. Beautiful piece of horn you've used, and the filed wedge just cool.

    Sweet Love the look of that feathered horn!

    I don't see the wedge very well on my work computer, I'll have to take a better look when I get home..

    Obscenely beautiful work, disgustingly consistent Sigh. 'So fine, G.

    The middle spacer: are those stacked stirling beads? Do you have to drill the hole to fit 1/16" rod?

    Many Thanks Rob,,, I actually have to embarrassingly admit to stalking the Bead Shows and Sections, I find tons of stuff that with some tweaking and imagination can be used quite often on razors ... That is where I found those little doodads in Silver and Brass

    I am usually the only guy there that is not being towed along by the wife LMAO
