  1. It's been a little while since I've posted anything on here, and I'm back. My latest build was this little straight razor. The blade is forged from a scrap piece of leaf spring with a dual and reversed twist in the tang. To add a small bit of flair, I did a bit of file work as well. The finish is gun bluing. The blade edge has a length of 2 3/4" with a bevel of 6/8. The spine thickness is 5/32". I used brass for the pins and the handle is oak with an angle grinder treatment then sealed with tung oil. Yes, this is hones and stropped. Is it normal for bladesmiths to be afraid of the edge they produce? lol
