    Default 6 new customs in the works

    I threw these 6 in my new forge yesterday. 2 of them are spoken for, and one I will never shave with, I don't like spike points. Guess which one that is. They were double tempered yesterday and have been on dry ice over night. I will start grinding them soon. Will send more pics as they get finished.

    Ok, I'll be the gentleman here. I offer my services as a test shaver. All you have to do is ship them to me and payment will be one blade for every 6 test shaves. So if you send me all 6 of those I'll send back five with detailed write-ups on how they shave. If they are really exceptional I'll offer to pay return shipping just to lower your cost.

    In all seriousness very nice I cannot wait to see them finished. Is that one with 3 holes in the tang a fixed blade? Its very interesting doing a fixed in a traditional folding style tang.

    I really like the 3rd from the top! The depth of the spine, on all of them, is very similar to mid 1800's razors. It gives a razor a really "solid" feel.
