This stunning instrument features the incredible look of pacific madrone burl and ziricote, contrasted with the striking color of yellowheart wood and emerald-acrylic strips. Between the beautiful scales rests a restored, shave-ready, vintage blade with bottom jimps for added comfort and control.
Razor's scales were handcrafted from a double layer of fine hardwoods: an outer layer of the three woods (and the acrylic) mentioned, and an inner layer of black walnut. This piece was finished with triple pins of brass and stainless steel. While there is some vintage grinding wear on the blade, this razor has been shave-tested and can be used to shave immediately without the need for additional honing.
Tang is stamped "FULLY WARRANTED" on one side and blade has a hefty near-wedge grind. Instrument was finished with a water-resistant teak oil treatment. Wedge is made of pacific madrone burl, ziricote, yellowheart and emerald acrylic to match the look of the colorful outer layer.
