View Full Version : Straight for sale Dark Twist in O1

11-04-2013, 09:11 PM
Blade is O1 @ HRC 60 I would put it at 1/4 grind maybe a tad more. Shoulderless, with a bit of a tail. The blade has been etched a slate grey that is a near match to the carbon fiber.

I went with a worked nickel silver wedge, and pins, stainless washers, to accent the "bright" hollows on the spine. Also used brass pivot washers.

Scales are "lightening strike" carbon fiber.

EDIT: Blade is 8/8 spine to edge, but due to the geometry, would sharpen as a 7/8

Pierre, can you please PM me the price? I really like the looks of it, although my shaving skills are such that the point will cost me a few extra $ in band-aids :O

That looks awesome. Too bad I haven't shaved in years.

Me either, and I'm afraid if I used a straight I would cut myself to ribbons but were I going to, that would be the one. Super nice.

Pierre, That is one good looking straight!

O_o whoa nelly. That's beautiful craftsmanship.
One day...after I stop cutting myself with a safety razor.
