    A little too big for me but the workmanship and grind is spectacular. Thanks for sharing.

    Although not that big, I have the pleasure of owning one of these razors.

    Both the quality and craftsmanship are truly impeccable.

    Holy crap that is gigantic-I love it, but my carpal tunnel is acting up just thinking about stropping it lol! I love that streaked horn, and it is a beautiful grind.

    In this case, it's a habit. I tried to do as much as possible so that it was convenient to use a razor both when shaving and when working with a razor on a leather belt.

    Wow, did not see the 12/8th, very nice work, lovely grind and really like the scales selection and how you chose the fade from black to translucent and the match of the dark wedge. Love horn.

    The dark fade almost looks like a flame. Very clean pinning, nice work as always and very nice photos.
