Hand forged and shaped, hollow ground, hand sanded, etched and polished before being fitted with beautiful box elder scales finished with a laser engraved logo. These razor are one of a kind and unique.

The Damscus is made with 1095 and 15n20. The billet is forged to the right width and thickness, and the tang is drawn out and shaped. After annealing, the razor blank is profiled and soaked in vinegar over night so the scale can be wire brushed easily. The tang and bevels are rough ground and then the blade is heat treated. After heat treat the blade is thinned, refined and polished. The blade is etched in ferric chloride and polished to reveal the pattern. The case is made by splitting a single piece of box elder to make a matching set of scales. the pieces are then thinned in the mill to make the gap for the blade, and leave a wedge which is tapered at the end. They are then hand sanded and finished. Titanium washers are made by hand, punched out of a sheet and turned down to size to stop the pin splitting the scales. A stainless pin is penned at both ends to hold the scales on. The scales and the pin are then polished and oiled before the blade is sharpened honed and stropped ready for shaving.
