I'm still building razors but just haven't posted in some time. Finally I got the inspiration to build one for myself. Not long ago I restored the scales for my Electric razor which brought this design to mind. I also have recently restored a Japanese frameback. Well I knew I had this Elliot "Chinese Razor" and some stock left from restoring the scales on my Drew 7 day box set so I figured I give it a go. Carved Ivory with Black bone with brass lined wedge.
Hope you enjoy the results.

Thanks guys! Yes , they are comfortable to hold. The little leaf just curls around my finger when opened. And really you're not grabbing this as a handle so there il little issue with that.

Even if it did I'd look at it the way women do with spike heels. They may not be comfortable but they sure do look good!

Do you have the build pictures posted anywhere? Would be awesome to see how you did the carving work and how you duplicated it ...

Pretty straight forward Mike. Here are a few. Drew out a design, transferred it with carbon, scribed it with a tungsten point, added ink, sanded away the extra ink, and then started carving it.
I do this stuff daily on a larger scale in wood so it was pretty basic for me except for the size of the piece.

Now the Cherry Blossoms , they were a different story. But these initially started out with me just playing to see how the stuff carved. It started going well so I just kept going and completed a set of scales.
