Some Custom Straight Razors Starting to take shape

A nice group of custom straight razors ready for heat treated tomorrow.

Two custom kamisori razors, one double hollow, one traditional, and three western folding straight razors of both wedge and sheffield style hollow grinds.

These are roughly ground blades, and this is but the first step after forging the pieces. Many more steps to come after the steel is precisely hardened. Finish grinding, polishing, handles…

Still, this is one of the most exciting moments, as the character of the blades really starts to show.
