Hello everyone, Last year I asked a friend of mine to make me a razor. He said he did not want money from me so he proposed a trade. He would have drawn a project for a kitchen knife, since he didn't have a nice one and, supposedly, in his opinion, I was getting the hang of it. I accepted, of course, as he is like a third brother to me and a very good bladesmith so it was such a honor for me... Well, after a little more than a year here are the projects. It has a lot of references to violins... because I am a violin maker. This will be a very cool project, the blade will be laminated, all 52100, but my friend deciced for full dip quench, no clay. He want it to be as simple as possible, even the finish. The flat side will be ground slightly hollow with a scraper and the signs of the scraper left on the surface. Maybe he will me to leave even file marks on the bevel side... we'll see. Anyway, the stop pin will be a violin peg, linked to the tailpiece with a violin string. So, the scabbard would most likely... play! I know it will be a lot of fun!
