Riga Razor for GSG 8/8 Quarter Hollow Custom Straight Razors with Black Horn Scales - Shave Ready
Master craftsman Sergejs Illarionovs in Riga Latvia hand makes some of the most attractive and exactingly well-crafted custom razors currently available. Using traditional methods like hand forging and freehand grinding, each razor is truly a work of art that shaves as beautifully as it looks. These are razors that you will cherish for a lifetime.
Each one of these stunning razors are made to our design specification in Bohler R100 high carbon steel which is an extremely high quality and fine-grained steel. Each razor blank is hand forged into shape and then hardened to 61HRC and hand ground and polished. The blades shown here measure between 7/8" and 1" in width (see specs below) with a spine thickness of 1/4".
Hand honed to a extremely sharp & smooth edge, you will find that each blade has a very thin even bevel, a testament to the fine grind quality.
The scales are also artfully hand made from extremely rare wooly mammoth tusk of creamy white ivory or the exterior crust, at least 15,000 years old. They balance finely with the blade which is held tightly and centers well between them.
