You are my inspiration Ralphy. I have bought a couple of Sword and Crown Stra8s and I have been procrastinating for a couple on months now. In truth, I am waiting for my Coti to arrive any time now; I bought mine from Timber Frame Tools, I was not aware of Brat's service.
However, after seeing your beautiful work on your S&C, I am now motivated to start the project and when I am done I will post some pictures to get your opinion.
Great work Ralphy, that is a killer razor.:thumbup:
