Description: Bozeman bladesmith Maverik Murdock is an up-and-coming maker to watch. This young bladesmith's attention to detail and devotion to the craft is clearly evident in his work. Murdock's knives are inspired by faith and family. His maker's mark shows his initials surrounding a stylized person in prayer.
This exceptional straight razor was handmade by Murdock. It is an exquisite piece. The 2 inch, 7/8" tall blade is easy to maneuver and will work well for either a beginning and experienced straight razor user. Maverick has tremendous skill at the grinder and this full hollow ground razor is perfectly ground with an exceptionally thin edge. The blade was hand forged from 52100 carbon steel. Many knifemakers and knife users have found 52100 to be among the best steels (if not the best) that are used in modern knifemaking. 52100 provides an exquisitely keen, long lasting edge. Because this razor is made from carbon steel, we recommend using camellia oil to avoid rust and oxidation. The blade features an elegant hand rubbed satin finish.
Handle scales are carved from lighting strike carbon fiber. This high tech composite was originally made for the military. Copper wires move through the woven carbon fiber. Lightning strike carbon fiber will hold up beautifully to the demands of regular use. The handle is contoured for a secure, comfortable grip.
The razor is accompanied by a walnut presentation box with magnetic closure.
