    Just finished up my Bruno Blade (Snail Forge Razors). Initially, I'd put a pair of acrylic scales on it, and then felt like a schlep for not doing the blade justice. Here it is in its new Gabon Ebony scales with a nice brass wedge. For those not familiar, you can purchase raw, unfinished, heat treated blanks from Bruno and finish them yourself. As close as I'll ever get to making my own razor without a forge.

    It's actually a really nice shaver. It's big (REAL big, ~10/8's), so it's a handful, but a very sweet shaver.

    Holy cow! Very nice Mike.

    10/8 though?
    Man, I thought my 6/8 was a bit on the bigger side.

    I had no idea anyone offered heat treated blade blanks.
    I'm going to look them up.

    I like that set much better Mike, simple elegant lines, for a razor that has more then enough style :D

    Beautiful razor! The line of the scales match quite well with the blade. Nice job! :happy088:
