    Default Forging to Shaving Video, The Whole Enchilada

    For a while now I have been wanting to make a video that documents the whole process of making a razor. This is a soup to nuts video, I have included a little bit of most of the steps. I start with a chunk of metal and finish by shaving with the razor.

    Charlie I haven't even started to watch your video but I'm very excited to do so! I've seen most all of your videos and they are wonderful! They tell and show what you are doing and why you are doing it and i find them very informative!

    I'll post later after I finish making the popcorn so I can enjoy the show!

    It was in original condition, faded red, well-worn, but nice.
    This was and still is my favorite combination; beautiful, original, and worn.
