    This was a rare project

    I had a request from a customer to recreate a razor that had been stolen from him
    It was a TI Dreadnought but in the Red Birch Burl scales that TI no longer makes
    So he ordered just a blade and sent me a Block on the closest Stabilized Birch Burl we could find
    From Block of Wood to a recreated razor honed to a final finish on a Nakayama with a Kita Nagura

    ps: Not sure what people mean by "Stabilized" any longer but this wood needed a CA finish to get it right in the end..

    I have to double check the email exchanges but I am pretty sure he had The Invisible Edge UK get it for him

    Nicely done, Glen, those Stabilized Burr scales from TI cost a fortune, I remember fitting a few for Steve Bowles the original owner of the Invisible edge, he told me the failure rate was so high with breakages that TI gave up producing some of them.
