Thread: A couple of firsts! Calling all razor nuts!

  1. #1

    A couple of firsts! Calling all razor nuts!

    The first first, is my first hollow grind. (By the way, I ain't got a round wheel)

    Second first, is my first razor!

    So, this is ground from 1/4" forged 52100 @ HRC 62, bright finish (not a perfect mirror) I'm net even sure how to describe this thing...

    Here goes... 1/4 hollow, slight smile (Maybe a grin?? lol!) Its between 6/8 and 7/8

    I used a 1/8" hardened folder pivot instead of traditional pins.

    The scales are presentation Koa, and the wedge is walrus ivory. Holding the tail together, is a mosaic pin...

    The curved tail is left wide, not sure if its staying this way, but is seems to give great control, and all but stops pivoting/rolling against the face.

    Please, let me know your thoughts on this one!

    **EDIT** I forgot, there are .010" Nylatron washers between the scales and tang.








    I will try to get white light pics tomorrow...

    damn, too bad I don't use straights.
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    Nice Pierre! I'd go so far as to say that's still a wedge, tho. Nothing wrong with that.
