    great thanks.
    So what is the conclusion about the best steel for razors?

    simple carbon steels with a splash of grain refiner alloy added.

    You know this but, 95% is good honing, 5% is steel, heat treat, and geometry. I was hoping that the steel made a bigger difference.

    yes but I think still you need to have finer carbides for better results?

    So, although there were additions for entertainment value in my response, did it help?

    My description did have a bit of "straight razor speak". A few years ago I wouldn't have known that a kamisori was a Japanese straight razor, let alone that they are single beveled.

    Actually, pics you provided were very helpful. I had a vague idea what kamisori razor was, but now I know.

    Have you considered putting more of a smile on any of your razors?

    I think some of those razors would look great in Max (or Max style) scales. I can envision them in black, white, or jade ghost.

    Here is one of his Jade Ghost:



    Picture one of Hoss's razors in those scales.

    These are the 5 razors I did for testing steels.
    Steels used were 1086v, L-3, 12C27, O-1, 1095CV.

    Handles are; lace wood, wenge, ebony, blood wood, and wenge.

    All have mokume washers.

    These are available for sale. PM me for details.

    The single photo is the one in the middle that got washed out in the photo.
