    Cool GemStar Customs and SnailForge Collaboration - Again

    Many of the members here will remember over the years Bruno and I working together across the big pond doing Straight Razor Collaborations..

    Well we decided to do it again this year

    Bruno@SnailForge in Belgium did the Steel (W2 Carbon) work along with the Heat Treat and Temper on these 6 razors. They are now heading across the ocean here to North Idaho

    Once they arrive Gemstar Customs will do final polish, and offer limited customizations to finish up the razors in Horn, Bone, Kirinite, or G10 scales.

    The razors are 13/16 -7/8 size final size after honing

    The price will be $350usd plus shipping for standard builds ie: 2 pins and most shapes


    Once the razors are here in hand I will finalize orders and take a small materials deposit on each one..


    These are cross listed on GemStar and SnailForge FB pages

    They will be FCFS

    All six blanks on this run have been spoken for,,,

    However I think Bruno and I might do something together again later this year, these collaborations are fun and they get the creative juice flowing
