    Default Straight Razor Blanks

    G'day guys, does anyone know where i can buy straight razor blanks?

    I want to make sets of scales for them, polish and hone the blanks myself
    then create a box for them to!

    Unfortunatly I don't have the equipment or space to forge my own.

    Thanks in advance.

    You'll probably have to clarify what you mean by blanks. Do you mean finished blades that just need honing and scales, or heat treated metal that needs the final grind, or rough ground stock that's not heat treated, or just raw stock?

    Whatever it is you're looking for, I'd suggest looking through the custom builds section to see who's making blades, and contact whoever is to see if they have what you want. Or you may get some responses from this thread.

    By the sound of it, he's after something close to finished, if he's asking about something he can polish and hone after putting on some scales.

    Yeah MickR thats right. I've been researching forging today I would like a blank to be gound in half hollow and heat treated.

    I would like to put the 'polish' grind on myself.

    Good luck with your search mate. I don't know what the boyo's over in the workshop do. I'm never there myself .
