Default Straight razors - forged

I have not posted in a while. I have been busy though. Just finished carving a chess set - mostly from boxwood. And knives....I bought a little gas fired forge and made a few things... a few straight razors. Three with micarta scales, one with brass scales.This is the nicest one so far.

That's cool Pete! You do nice work. That was the only thing I was good at in high school shop. There is just something about shaping almost molten steel on an anvil that appeals to me. Don't be a stranger.

Good job Pete. I built all my carving knives from straight razors. they stay sharp for a long time. Where have you been hiding?
