    Things just keep piling up, and I can't seem to get ahead. Maybe I should hire some help... :rolleyes:

    At any rate, here are a few I've been working on. They are really still in the rough stages, but it may give you an idea what the ugly ducklings look like so far. Three are already promised to someone. One of the single-piece razors will likely go on ebay 'cause it's the only fair way I can think of to sell it.

    I may put the others that are available on my "Private Stock" page of my web site which exists specifically for my past customers. This page is not linked from anywhere on my regular site. In fact, there are two razors left on that page that will get bumped to my regular site relatively soon. I only leave them there for a while to give my best customers first crack at them.

    If any of you have purchased razors from me in the past and have not received notification of this link, shoot me a PM and I'll get it to you.

    Back to the upcoming batch. Once these get finished, I may not be able to work on razors for a while. I have to build a shed in the back yard. I have to build a rock and tile BBQ area there as well. I have to build my hidden room for guns and 'n' stuff. And... I have to build bookcases for the library and a storage area in the family room for DVD's and the like. I won't be able to fit in too much razor stuff...

    All this file work will need finishing touches...

    These are the one-piece razors. I have one similar on my site. One will go to eBay.

    More rough file work. Go to my gallery to see the rest.

    Work is never done huh Bill? I say you hire someone to do the domestic projects. Make sure to "eliminate" the person that works on your hidden room. :D That way you can keep with the knife and razor stuff and we won't fee deprived. ;)

    Tell you what I may do... if I can see some interest... and, it's ok with Sparky and Our Gang.

    I was thinking I could donate one of them to a raffle here on TSD. There would have to be a minimum of 100 tickets sold in 5-ticket blocks at $6 per block. To make it fair, I don't think there should be any more than 500 total tickets sold. Details later, but all proceeds will be going to the upkeep of this site.

    What say ye? [​IMG]

    That is a wonderful idea, Bill!

    I'm sure Bobby will agree to this. ;)

    Thank you!
