Carbon Shaving Co. - Cx Mokume-gane razor

Kudos to Sean and company at Carbon Shaving for introducing another masterpiece!
I recently shared pictures of the Cx Damascus steel razor.

Here now is the Cx razor in mokume-gane.
This beautiful piece was crafted from hand selected pieces that were forged here in the USA.
It's a mixture of copper and brass alloys, patterned and finished beautifully.

This is yet another example of Carbon's mission to create 'authentic, lasting products that are worthy of being called an heirloom'

That's nice.  I think I like that one better than the Damascus version.

Here is a new one made out of carbon fiber and stainless steel as a limited addition

swing and a miss. Color and proportions are not appealing.

I disagree.

Ravi is the butt of your handle also carbon or is that just the light in the photo? If so, a slight improvement. The carbon just comes off as really flat and a mismatch with/overpowers the damascus. Maybe if it had some contours or the the color carried through to the head.  Also how is the balance? 


I'd rather see a black inlay in the circular grooves of the R2 handle. Makes for a subtle contrast with the polished steel and ties in nicely with the black engraving on the baseplates or a damascus finish. Just an optical illusion with the light in the photo below but you get the idea.

The Carbon Shaving picture of the carbon fiber handle has little appeal to me.  Ravi's picture is much better and almost "get out my credit card" nice.

My LE of the original handle with a carbon black stripe is still a favorite.

Is it all carbon fiber or is the steel wrapped in carbon fiber?

I’m fairly certain the middle section is entirely carbon fiber : I’ll check with Sean to be sure.
