    Two W&B's

    Hello all, life is keeping me busy with a new job and a few other things, so I haven't been much around lately. (I promise I will be around more as soon things settle down a bit :) ) I've gotten a little time in between to do some work in the workshop, the latest are these two I did for a...

    What's your top 3 razors?

    Title says it all, well at least almost... I was just standing in front of my cabinet last night looking at my razors when I started thinking about which of razors I like the most? The answer is not easy as I like all my razors (after all that is why I have kept them) but if I had to pick...

    Hi Guys, Lately an old interest in photography have taken to seriously grow and I'm trying to expand the hobby and hopefully develop as a hobby-photographer. I've always enjoyed taking photos, but haven't really put any effort in really learning what I'm doing, but since I started doing SOTD...

    666

    I got this for a song on the bay, in fact I came across it just a couple minutes before it ended and placed a bid more or less just for fun, and to my surprice I won. I didn't expect much of it as the pics was a bit blurry, and it was hard to tell how good or bad condition it was in, my...

    Top Flight & Gold Eagle

    Here's two eBay specials I finished tonight: First one is another one belonging to Amund, a 6/8 Burrel Top Flight. The scales were a wreck when he got it, not sure what material they were made of but they more or less crumbled when touching them. I left the tang untouched to keep the...

    Horny Gotta :)

    Did this for our very own Amund (Blix), the original scales had broke off by the pivot pin. Didn't do much on the blade, just a light buffing through the polishing compounds. The scales are made of tranculent horn in the original design, kept the original wedge and center spacer, pins are...

    Old Sheffield brought back to life

    First, sorry for not being that much around as I use to lately, I've been spending a lot of time in the shop the last few weeks. Lately I've put the custom restoration a side and have been working mostly on original resores, not much to show off really, but this one I wanted to share...

    Crown & Sword in Wedgeless G10

    The blade is the same I posted a while back, but I put those scales on an old frameback some weeks ago and the blade have been lying on my bench since then. Yesterday I decided to start my vacation with making new scales for it, inspired by the wedgeless scales Alex Jacques posted a couple...

Razor is a 6/8 half hollow vintage Dovo that I got from johnmrson last week, the scales she came in was just fine, but I wanted to give it my own touch. Scales are Hunter...

    First attempt with horn - Wade & Butcher

    This is my first "real" attempt at horn scales. I did try to make some a while ago, but with the equipment and knowledge I had at the time I screwed up when trying to thin the blanks to the right thickness. Thanks to Grant (Baldy) who gave me some tips and links that was very helpful, this...

    Crown & Sword dressed in red for Christmas

    This "little" girl dropped of in my mailbox last week, and in the spirirt of X-mas, what would suit her better than a pretty new red dress? She's a 7/8 ERN Crown & Sword, scales are made of red G10 with bone wedge and brass pins and washers. Since I still don't have a buffer I hand sanded as...

    What did I pick up?

    Picked up this one at flea/used/antique marked today. According to the info I have found it looks to be an Executive, but what's confusing me a little is that it's date code is E1, which would make it 1st quarter of 1959, but I thought the first Executive was made in 1960? Any one to fill me...
