Razor features a 4 ˝ inch feather-patterned Damascus blade.
The quarter hollow-ground 8/8 blade is secured to the copper
scorpion tail by three 14K gold pins.
The blade spine features 24K gold inlay from the scorpion’s tail
to tye Spanish point.
The scales are made from a Texas whitetail antler which has been
carved and textured to compliment the blade and the overall them.
The scales are separated by a carved musk ox horn spacer.
The crown of the antler features a gargoyle-like carving with opal
eyes, 14K gold teeth, and a feather-patterned Damascus spacer.
The blade is heat treated to a Rockwell of 62.
I call this Goliath’s razor because of the overall large size.
I would like to thank Larry Fuegen for inspiration and
encouragement on this project.

I started making straight razors about 2013. Making useable quality straight razors presents some very different challenges than making a knife. This razor features a 3-inch Damascus blade forged from 01 and L6 tool steels. The razor is six-eighths and quarter hollow ground with a Rockwell hardness range of 62-63 and features 24K gold inlay. The scales are India stag with a 14Kgold escutcheon inlaid on the name side. Sole authorship.
