    Default 9/8 Wootz razor

    I just finished this one. It's my interpretation of the W&B Ottoman
    9/8 with stabilized wood scales.

    Til shade is gone, til water is gone, Into the shadow with teeth bared, screaming defiance with the last breath.

    Very nice. Did you make the wootz also or did you use wootz bar stock? Still impressive either way but even moreso if you made the wootz.

    I didn't see this question sooner.
    Neither. Niko Kopra melts the wootz ingots for me. I then forge the ingot down to a bar, and from a bar into a razor.
