As some of you remember I had contacted Jerry Stark on making me a custom razor, see this thread if interested http://shavenook.com/showthread.php?tid=41105anyway I had some issues with the thumb notch just did not seem to fit my hand well and made stropping a chore and the original scales were larger than I liked so I brought my concerns to Jerry along with a few sketches and he said no worries just send it back and we can remake it more to you're liking and to my liking it is, have not shaved with it yet but the stropping and overall size of the blade and scales fit my needs.


Jerry has been great to work with and I cannot recommend his work enough, not to many Vendors would do what he did so hopefully when I am off on Monday I can give it a test run.

I loved the sleek look of the first one, but it must have been a bugger to strop. I think you are going to really like this one. Congratulations.

Yes Sir, just a tad difficult to strop had to reposition my thumb about every 25 laps or so, it did get easier the more I stopped it but never could really get a rhythm down plus the scales were a tad oversized for the blade so I asked him to streamline the scales and shorten the cutting length of the blade to 2.75", very nimble now and very similar to my Wacker Chevalier pictured here:
