    You going to put a ca finish on it? Glen has a great tut on how to do it somewhere around here. I am going to scale about a dozen razors soon and will be watching how it goes for you.

    Nice I like that 2 pin look. I got to get an anvil. I am thinking a Cliff Carol 35 lb. Where did you get your peen ? I bought a Craftsman but had to regrind the darn thing. It looked more like a chisel than a peen.
