This is the sister to the previous French razor I did. It's also the 4th of a set of 7 I plan to carve.
 The blade was missing parts of the script so I etched them back into place. While playing with the blade I decided to add some "file work" to the spine as well. Small as they are they remain crisp.
 For the scales I drew up a design, carved them, added an Abalone shell inlay, and finished it off with some dot Scrimshaw.
 Since I wanted an old school lead wedge I made one out of a .45 bullet. Brass washerless (traditional) pins holds it all together.

Holy smokes! That is so nice I'd almost be afraid to use it in fear of dropping it...almost. That is museum quality stuff right there. Mark, your work is something else.
