Damascus razor

3 posts in this topic

Just finished this yesterday, 6/8 blade, 3" long, 400 layers of 1084 and 15&20 twist damascus, half hollow (smallest contact whee I have is 8"), maroon linen mycarta scales and spacer, brass pins and washers.  Shaves well, though it needs a little more stoning.

This is my second razor, and while it's got a few things I would do different next time, it's not bad and a big improvement over my first.  The biggest thing is I want to get a smaller contact wheel and go for a 1/4 grind.

I tried to get a decent pic of the edge thinness, but it's hard to see how thin it is.

Very nice, I like the simple black scales. Good job, I'd happily trade my dovo in for that :D
