This is definitely not going to be a new hobby of mine, but it was something I had to do at least one.

It's a Shuredge that was in not so great shape.  I cleaned it up, still some obvious pits, but no rust and the edge is in good shape -- once I get it honed.

The scales I hand formed and made from 2x6 wood blanks.  Couple of challenges getting the pins right.. But all in all, I think it turned out OK.

I'd like to hear some other opinions though, since I have little to base mine on.

Looks like an excellent job to me, congrats and enjoy. If you ever have to unpin it you could try to do the hammered tang with some cold gun bluing.

Do it yourself is a great way to understand the razor you have. Your design and finishing of that razor looks very nice.

Nice job!!
I like the wood you chose for the scales and you've got a good shape on them. What type of wood is it?
