    Look What I Found!

    I came across this beauty today, while searching for a strop or materials to make a strop for a straight razor. It's cocobolo and measures 1/4"x3"x24". I see many scales coming!!! I couldn't pass up on figuring like this.

    Nice! Highly figured cocobolo seems to be kinda hard to find these days.

    I cut this baby into three roughly 5.5" long pieces, one 5" piece and a little extra for spacers, or bolsters. They will be ripped in half and will only lose 1/16" max for nice sets of scales.
    I tried to maximize the "niceness" on the scales, by choosing where I cut. Damn, these are pretty!
