15/16 “Odin’s Edge” Dragon Themed Fileworked Damascus Custom Straight Razor

Stacks Image 4180
Stacks Image 4181
Steel: Home made “W” pattern damascus featuring wrought iron (from an 1800s wagon wheel), 1095, and reclaimed PNW 15n20 from bandsaw blades
Size: ~ 15/16
Cutting Edge: 2.85”
Weight: 4.5 oz
Scales: Fossilized sectional tiger coral individually peened to nickel/silver liners w/ tiger coral wedge
Model: Odin’s Edge
Grind: 1/4 Hollow
Price: $1850
Comments: This is the most elaborate and quite possibly the best straight razors I’ve made to date. The damascus was completely made in house featuring ~200 layers of steel in a unique pattern w/ wrought iron salvaged from an 1800s wagon wheel and steel reclaimed from the PNW bandsaw steel. I very carefully controlled the pattern to ensure no wrought iron was near the edge to make sure the edge would fully harden. The filework on this razor is my dragon scales and dragon tail filework with a great flow to it, and more importantly it will not scratch your strop as I want my razors to not only look nice, but to be able to be actively used as well. The scales are my popular coffin scales with the most elaborate construction I’ve attempted using fossilized tiger coral on nickel/silver liners. These scales were some of the hardest I’ve made to date.

Everything about this razor is hand finished - yes even the grind so no machine mark are present anywhere on this razor (or scales for that matter). This all takes time and that is very much how this piece is priced
. Honed with a single layer of electrical tape over the spine. This razor does have some heft being a 1/4 hollow and having scales on the more heavy side, but I still find it easy to maneuver in hand.

The picture on the left is a professional photo of this razor (along with it’s brother clad in mammoth tusk scales, which has already been sold). This is a fantastic piece and certainly is a step above much of my other work.

This is again only for the damascus razor in tiger coral scales.

13/16 Smiling Odin’s Edge “Brute de Forge” Honyaki Custom Straight Razor

Stacks Image 4397
Stacks Image 4404
Steel: sc145 (very clean, high carbon steel w/ 1.45% carbon)
Size: ~ 13/16 (0.84”)
Cutting Edge: 2.85”
Weight: 2.5 oz
Scales: Desert ironwood burl w/ black oak wedge
Model: Smiling Odin’s Edge
Grind: 1/4 Hollow
Price: $975
Comments: Despite it’s simple carbon steel makeup, this razor is also one of the best razors I’ve made to date. The razor was hand forged from sc145 steel which is a very clean steel w/ a lot of carbon (1.45%). This makes it ideal for clay coating and formation of a “hamon” during heat treat giving a honyaki style razor. The razor was forged in a “brute de forge” style leaving a naturally forge tapered tang. What makes this razor truly special is the hand finish to truly bring out that hamon. While damascus is very cool in the looks - these razors are actually hand finished to a higher polish to try and bring out that special hamon - hence the price of these razors compared to a machine finish razor. This hamon is so hard to capture in a photo (hence the professional ones) and is best viewed in video - see below:
