Thanks so much. Yes, this is Torben's razor. I have had this for some time but just haven't been able to get to it as expected. Next up.... my Polish brother Matis.Bart said:That razor looks familiar.
Stunning work, Ray. As always. :thumbup:
Finishing wood takes a special kind of Patience. You're one of the best I've ever seen, Ray. And I've been around, trust me.rayman said:Torben and Ralfy (Dr)
The finish on this razor is 10 coats of Varnish, sanded to 2000 grit every 2 coats. Finally hand rubbed with Light rubbing compound, two coats of furniture past wax and a final buffing. The inside backing is brick colored with an Ebony wedge.

The level of detailed perfection in your scales makes me humbled and proud that you are posting on this website.
Matt,matis said:Oooo, oh, that's a lovely piece! Is this just the perspective, just me, or these scales are really of above-than-average thickness?
You certainly have a way of humbling someone. I have never had anyone describe my work quite like this. I am blushing profusely at the moment.
Thank you for those kind words.
