Patch Knife continued...


Well to my disappointment I found a hairline crack in a 1850's era razor... But not to be down to long... I now have a patch knife piece to make for my rifle :)
This razor would have been a great shaver, if it wasn't for that frigging crack hiding next to that chip. As I was working out the chip I saw a scratch that wasn't going the right direction, being paranoid about these things I checked the other side... yup same scratch... Crap not a scratch... It's a crack, and they never hone out right enough to shave with again... /cry...
So I'll be removing the scales (putting them on a Bell Belfast) and looking for a piece of horn to set this razor in :)
