This razor is the clients great grandfathers. It came in for a restoration but since the scales it had weren't the originals he decided on some wood. I chose Padauk which I personalized for him and as you can see the lettering is tapered over its length and the tallest is 1/4 inch high. Now it will be passed on to future generations.

Good show, mycarver. The razor maintains its warm and antique look. The blade is quite handsome with its sculpted spine, and the Thiers-Issard style scales complement the overall picture. Such handsome razors make shaving such a pleasure.

That's great, an heirloom now. What is the design along the spine?

Thanks guys.
Nothing says warmth like wood I believe. Then again this is coming from a wood carver!
The design on the spine? I've done these but this came on the blade originally. I'd say it is just scallops and a cove? Looks good regardless what you call it. I also have a penchant for decorative spines as well. I think I'll have to do a few more.

Hi Mark

You most definitely nailed those new scales, just look at the razor in its closed position, the blade and scales compliment each other perfectly Clap

Take care, Mike

Thanks for noticing. I do try to keep lines parallel to maintain a symmetry for the razors. The scales compliment the blade. Just things I look for as an artist I guess.
