There was barely any visible hone wear on this one and after a light polishing there is none at all...I only did a light polishing and buffing to the steel, and brought it to near perfect Satin finish.. The scales are Custom Yellow & Black G10 that have been contoured to bring out the Bumblebee effect and are a thin .115" beautifully contoured much like the Vintage scales to fit the hand while shaving and stropping. The wedge is at .055" at the very end made from a Translucent Yellow acrylic to match the scales, and continue the Bumblebee effect.. The razor centers perfectly, and the double hollow grind delivers a smooth comfortable shave...

I sourced some good quality 7-9oz Vegetable Tanned Leather and went to work, I bought some nice Ash, Stained & Sealed it with Polyurethane included a label with stropping instructions on the bottom..
After attaching some 3/4 inch silicone feet the NEW Gemstar Customs Bench Strop is now available ...
Now for the best news, these are what I actually use for pasted strops, I have found no better way to use pastes as of yet, so after you learn to "Flip" the razor and strop correctly, you know you are going to go buy a High Quality hanging strop and this will not go to waste.. You can simply add CrOx or your favorite paste and re-purpose it..
Or if you just need a good platform for applying pastes now, the price is sure right..
Something new on a limited basis,
Instead of just putting finish "On" the wood, I am using a Vacuum Chamber to completely seal the wood inside and out.. Each completed wood handle is placed under Vacuum for 48 -72 hours, I am using Daly's Seafin Marine wood sealer on the tight grain woods, and Polyurethane on the others.. After the wood has become completly impregnated with the finish, the handle is dried for 3 weeks or longer... They are then coated with Renaissance Wax and machine buffed 3 times..
The Knots are either 22mm or 24mm Overstuffed SilverTips I normally set them slightly low (about 52mm) so they have a tiny bit more body.. All knots are set with 3500 lb Marine Grade Epoxy..
For CONUS Customers shipping one item is generally $6 which includes Boxed, Tracked and Insured, (up to $199 in value) this price holds pretty good, even for two items... With the increases in Insurance prices the shipping charges change by about $2 per $100 in value.
