He does use 1.2210 steel at HRC 61-62. I think Aust and others use these blanks.

You are going to love it. Show us some pictures.I purchased a 7/8 Spanish Point hollow grind last Friday. It’s on the way.
If it wasn't for my other SRs getting jealous and biting me, I too would shave only with my Colling SR.I don't have a huge collection of straight razors. I have three, but I have three good ones. I have an H. Diamond 1000 full hollow, a Thiers Issard singing full hollow, and this Colling. The Colling has replaced the others as my favorite razor to shave with. It isn't as expensive as the Thiers Issard, but its shaving and handling qualities are better than either. I don't say this lightly as both of the others are dearly loved. But, I really love this razor.
That is one exceptionally beautiful razor.
The paua scales were on my list too but then I found the 7/8 already made.That is one exceptionally beautiful razor.
I was interested in the paua scales and they are beautiful. But the olive wood spoke to me and I grabbed one of his already made razors from ebay. It came in Friday. Outstanding quality and shave ready.

No, this razor was already made and had the etching on it. It’s not custom.That olive wood was very attractive. But I went with carbon fiber for now. Maybe next one Did you request the etching?
