    Default Three pin 9/16 giraffe bone

    Most of my razors are larger, but here's one of the smaller hollow grinds from the shop in a three-pin design with giraffe bone.

    Very nice, Robert, as usual. I love the mirror polish you put on your razors.

    Wow that's lovely.

    When you say "from the shop", does that mean it's waiting on a shelf for someone to purchase it - or does it already have a buyer?

    I'm afraid that one is shipping on Tuesday. It was custom ordered. It's heading across the world to Hong Kong for a member here.

    Thanks, Xchris. The mirror polish on a razor looks great, but the real value is that a very, very high polish tremendously reduces the maintenance on the razor. Since the moisture has no where to hide and no crevices or scratches to penetrate, the mirror polished blades require only wiping with a little toilet tissue (soft, non-abrasive and absorbent) in order to keep it bright, mirror clean and free of staining. I've done brushed finishes for those that requested them but I always recommend against them. I'd rather do brushed finishes because they're a lot easier to do but... the brushed/satin finish on high carbon steel requires a good bit more care and something like Tuf-Glide is recommended to keep them in good shape.

    The spacer is polished brass to match the wedge.

    Forget Pavlov's dog. Every time you post, Robert, I start salivating before I even see the pic.s! She's a beauty, as always
