    Default Bruno Blade Project

    So just real quick I finally got my Bruno Blade in and I could not wait to give it a try. So just wanted to take a picture of it in person and show you guys the outcome. I also got a brush turned to match with a 24mm TGN Silvertip badger knot. Super happy with both products.

    The shave was really nice. Its a very different shaped blade so I will need to get used to it. The razor took an amazing edge and just felt so so smooth on my face. IMO getting a Bruno blade is very well worth it. Thanks again Bruno and everyone else involved with this razor.

    I like just about everything about that razor! The scales complement the razor well even though it seems kind of diminutive for size of the blade it really works. The only thing I would change if I were asking for a Bruno blade would be making the top transition from the tang to the monkey tail a little less abrupt. I think that would make it a little easier to strop. Then again, I might be full of it. The whole thing is beautiful.

    edit: Yup. I'm full of it. Looked again and scales seem perfectly sized and tang looks long enough with the curve underneath to allow easy stropping.

    Outstanding job, and a great cost-effective way to get a custom razor that you can put scales on. A Bruno blade is deifnitely on my list to do!

    It does take some getting used to when stropping but wasnt too bad. the long tail is helping me control the unfamiliar shaped razor.
