Description: Oregon bladesmith Joe Edson specializes in straight razors and kitchen knives. His work, whether a razor or chef’s knife is truly razor sharp!
The blade is formed from V-Toku2 san mai. High performing V-Toku2 carbon steel is set between layers of stainless steel. A thin layer of nickel stops carbon migration between the primary layers. V-Toku2, with its small crystalline size, allows for a tremendously sharp, responsive edge. The flats are forge finished. Stainless sides help make it easier to keep this razor in perfect shape. Because the center core is made from carbon steel, we recommend using camellia oil to avoid rust and oxidation. The blade features a compound full hollow grind. This grinding technique combines two different hollow sizes to result in a keen, thin edge with slightly more strength behind it. The blade finishes in a slightly rounded spike point. The rounded tip helps avoid accidental cuts.
Handle scales are made from presentation grade ringed gidgee. Ringed gidge (Acacia cambagei) is an Australian hardwood that is exceptionally dramatic. The wood has a tight curl. The handle is completed with a black Micarta spacer. Copper accents on the pins bring in warm tones. This handle will protect the blade well during storage.
Exceptional work throughout!
