    Bumping this thread because I think it may have slipped under the radar and I want to see more of these beauties while I wait like an excited child in the run up to Christmas for mine to be finished. Normally very impatient, but this is pleasant anticipation.

    This 8/8 half hollow just came in (Photo: Koraat). I had honed one previously and liked the edge so much that I was left with no choice

    Better than I'd thought it would come out. Ulrik has made something lovely. Well pleased.

    Hi folks,

    Let me help populating this thread with pictures of one of my two Koraat razors. Ulrik is such a nice and decent young man with an unbelievable talent.

    I know him back from the day when he was still concentrating on making knives, in particular kitchen knives (and I still have one custom kitchen knife form him of these earlier days).

    My first Koraat was a custom made 8/8 Western Kamisori:









    Here in comparison to my classical Iwasaki kamisori:


    Ulrik had been so kind as to document his work in process. If you're interested (and don't mind the German ) you can see them here:

    Cheers
    Jörg

    Some how, I had not only missed this thread, but I have never even heard of these razors. Even with just these few pictures you can see some evolution to his skills. Is he an SRP member? I see a few comments of how easy the edges are to hone, how long do you feel the edges last in comparison to vintage Solingen steels? Very curious now.
