    I bet that made you look.

    My latest is a razor. The steel is 1095, forge finished flats, smokey hamon. I used ebony for the handles

    Looks awesome... don't blame you one bit for not shaving your face though. That's a whole lot of sharp to be putting on highly bleedy bits if you muck it up.

    Always something I've thought would be cool to know how to do, but never got around to learning.

    I'm not sure. I ground the edge to around 10 thousandths then used my water stones. I can't remember what grit they are. The final buff was with a leather belt and green compound

    Ah, cool. You will want to go up to at least 8000 to make sure you get a proper "shave ready" edge.

    It's gone now so it is out of my control. The new owner said he wanted to hone it himself. I will keep that in mind for the next one

    Fair enough, most SR shavers either hone their own or have a favorite honer/honist/guy who sharpens razors.

    I made it because it was something different. I learned a lot and still have more to learn.

    My next knife I have to make is a great big survival knife. Talk about one extreme to the other.

    really nice, I like the antique look it has. Razors are hard, I have a few fixed razors on the go but I put them on the back burner for a while.. zero grinding scares the crap out of me.
