LThis Higgins came in as a shorty. I sanded and polished up the blade as usual. And for the scales something unusual was requested. Bog Oak ( buried in the peat bogs of England for 3-6000 yrs.) was chosen. Seemed appropriate somehow for this English razor. A white wedge contrasts the nearly black ( from the acidic water ) of the Oak scales. [Image: zw0OlgO.jpg][Image: I7nmTRz.jpg][Image: YttSSnC.jpg][Image: Ch7TduR.jpg][Image: AeNmGda.jpg]
