LR Harner told me about this new section of this forum.

Here is a picture of one of my latest razors. It is O1 with a acid etched handle.

That's one tough looking razor, Charlie. I think my whiskers would turn tail and run at the sight of it.

Charlie alot of the japanese straights are made just like that . I will be making a few of them way easier and great for starting out. I like the design have you shaved with it yet ? Now from the picture it looks like the spine is thicker near the spine and narrows up towards the tip. If it does you may have alot of trouble getting it to hone proper. I know that the angle from the spine to the blade edge is very important to be perfect for the dimentions . Lets hear how it shaves on the face . kellyw

The razors shave well. I have made and sold a few of them. The shorter blade length requires you pay a bit of attention. When you first start using the shorter blade can not go on auto pilot like you can with a regular straight. After a while it becomes second nature. Here us a review of the razor from a different forum.
