Custom straight Razor CS18
Note* Excuse the damn fingerprint on the tang, its been wiped clean and oiled, I'll drop new pics when I shoot the next lot. Only picked it up when the item was already listed.
Another fine razor from the Cape of Good hope. This razor is all dolled up in Padauk scales and wedge with black Micarta inlays on the inner scales to finish off this classic piece. The scales have an orangy, red glow to it captured en preserved beautifully in a high gloss CA finish. The blade has a satin finish with a conventional round tip. Geometrically spaced jimps on the top and bottom sides of the tang will help ensure this stays firmly between your fingers and gets handed down to the next generation as a fine shaving tool.
Length of blade: 70 mm, width: 21.5 mm (7/8")
Material: High Carbon Steel, with a hardness in the range of 61 to 63 RC.
The blade has been "wet tested" and is shave ready, strop on leather before every shave.
