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.
