    Hi Luke, welcome to the forum. You are in the right place, there are lots of people here that also make razors.

    Also we really like to see pictures, so when you have some to share let's have a look

    Good luck on your journey.

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! So I’ve made my first kamisori style razor (still needs a little work aesthetically) but it’s functional none the less... now I’m not the most talented bloke when it comes to producing facial hair (think joe dirt, all white trash and patchy) but tonight I finally had enough growth to trim the neck line and cheeks a little with my own handmade razor and I have to say. As a guy with sensitive skin this was the MOST comfortable shave I’ve ever had and I’ve only used a straight razor twice in my life! I’ve got the bug and I’ll be practicing the art of shaving and continue to learn and make more razors!
