    Default Wade & Butcher Fine India Steel in B&W Ebony

    This one I had a little fun with, David told me to do whatever I wanted to with the scales.... Soooooo I used some Black n White Ebony that I had been wanting to use on something, and this 7/8 W&B Fine India steel razor that he sent me was "something"
    I built the scales using almost the original pattern, but tweaked it some, I used a Gabon Ebony wedge sheathed in thin brass for some weight and just because I liked the looks.. I used stacked, domed brass washers, with brass pins for hardware... The finish is a little different too....
    I used a water based Poly-Acrylic spray and left in the slight dimpling effect with 8 coats.. This stuff is about as tuff a finish as you can find....
    The blade came out to an almost mirror finish....
    Dwessel I still gotta put an edge on it then I'll send her flying south back to you.... Hope ya like it

    The brass highlights on the dark wedge really does it for me.


    Fine India steel is some of the smoothest shaving iron you'll ever come across!

    Like the tortise shell effect on the timber.. Tres elegante.
    But then Fine India Steel deserves it.
    It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that ain't so..
