My first straight razor

Made this yesterday.  I haven’t decided yet whether to keep it or sell it.

The blade is 1084/15n20 twist damascus.  The handle is ivory paper micarta.





And, here’s a knife I finished today.  It’s been in the oven for a long time.  The blade is CPM D2 (it’s one of the one’s featured in the heat treating post I did not long ago).  It’s hollow ground and hand rubbed to 400 grit.  The polishing alone took about 6 or 7 hours.  So I’m burned out.  It’s got a full tang, and ironwood scales.







Have a good holiday weekend,
