    Arrow A Custom Razor

    Well everyone, I finally finished a custom that I plan to sell. Everything here was done by me. The blade is 8/8 or slightly larger. Made of O1 (high carbon steel). The scales are canvas micarta with .45 shells on both sides. The shells were tough to do because of the non-exact fitting hole which they needed to sit in. I still need to hone it, but it should be just like all the others I've made so far- i.e. a great shaver. I do need to say that I hate these photos. They really don't make it look as good as it does in person. The harsh light makes it look scratched and less than shiny. I need a professional photographer from now on- really. Anyway- hope you all enjoy.

    Very interesting design. Thanks for sharing. I'm curious, about how thick are the scales?

    True talent. If it shaves as good as it looks, (and I've no reason to believe it won't) then you've hit one out of the ballpark with this.
