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.

OK - I give up. How the heck did you get a hollow grind without a round wheel ???

Bend a piece of steel around something round, then counterbend the ends of it till it will sit nicely on a flat surface, clamp both ends to your flat platten, and run your belt over that.

Yup, make up a piece of metal to go over your flat platen that has the radius you want. Guys do this a lot with single bevel knives with the hollow back, otherwise you would need a wheel with a 3-4' (FOOT) radius!
