    Default Show us your thumbnotches!

    I thought this would be a good idea for a thread, as i kind of realized that my favourite razors all are thumbnotched.
    so it'd be cool to see all the different thumbnotched razors that people like/own!

    These are mine:

    from top to bottom, j.rodgers & sons 7/8 wedge, E. Kron Solingen 7/8, Mussel (Ern) Hand forged 13/16, and Minerva werk 11/16

    Nice collection.

    I like the 3 pin horn scales and the blade, on the Minerva, what are the scales on the dark one next to it, the ERN? Ern’s are shavers.

    Are the 3 pins at the wedge a design element?

    Hey, Thanks first of all!
    The scales are desert ironwood cross cut.
    And the 3 pin "arrangement" is because i re-used the scales from one i decided to sell, and i wanted to keep the wood.
    But the first time round i glued in the brass tube (they were i think one of the first set of scales i ever made for a razor) as i didnt have any collars for peening.
    so i had to cut down the center of the wedge and put another 2 in for re-assembling (not so easy to drill out brass tube with just an old dremel). haha I know it doesnt look nice... i just didnt want to throw that beautiful wood away.

    And i totaly agree! ERN has some lovely steel!

    Yea, looked like Ironwood, have some and looking to make some scales from it.

    You could do a 3 pin design and make it work. A pin vice and a new bit works pretty well, if you don’t have a drill press, on wood and brass.

    Did you do the horn, looks nice? Line the 3 pin.

    Here are my thumb notches. A smiling blade with a thumb notch doesn't get much better than that.
