Description: This razor is a collaborative piece by Adrian and Stefan van Deventer. Stefan and Adrian are the sons of renowned knifemaker JD van Deventer. This last year, they have been studying knifemaking under their father, and their collaborative efforts have been truly spectacular. They are excelling at making some of the best straight razors I have ever encountered.
The 6/8th" thin, precision ground blade is formed from V-Toku2 san mai carbon steel. The high performing carbon steel is laminated between layers of 410 stainless steel. This provides an ultra-high performing edge with rust resistance along the spine and upper third of the razor. The steel was brought to 62-63 Hrc for a particularly long lasting edge. The hollow ground blade features Adrian and Stefan's collaborative mark engraved on the right side: "S A Brothers".
Handle scales were made from box elder burl with 'bolsters' formed from lightning strike carbon fiber. Copper wires are woven through the carbon fibers. The stabilized wood and carbon fiber is set on thin orange spacers for strenght and durability.
This is an absolutely spectacular custom straight razor.
