I think that you have done well. It is your razor! Enjoy the learning and the use of it. It should be comfortable in your hand and on your face.

I like it!

The holes add a bit of a steampunk cachet, which the Jules Verne reader in me likes.:love:

I would have used brass hardware for the occasion, but that's just me.

By the way: that's a nice looking linen you have there.

Kind regards,
