    Family Tradition

    Been away for a while do to vacation and a bad computer virus that took a while to get fixed.

    One family tradition in my family that is now on it's third generation, is that on a male's 13th birthday, he get his first razor. None of the males in three generations has needed one at that age, and the razors sat in drawers for a few years before they were used, but hey, who says family traditions have to make sense? Anyway my son reminded me my grandson was turning 13 and asked if I would put together a razor for him. I did, made the handle out of water buffalo horn and it looked sharp (pun?). Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of it. While I was at it I decided to make another one using a laser cut blank, for a pen. I had to modify it a little to make it work but it did work. Little hard to take a picture of but here it is. The antler part I filled in with real deer antler dust mixed in epoxy.

    Since Ken already stole the most obvious comment, I'll say it looks real smooth.

    Nicely done, Paul.

    Too cool! I'll bet he got all lathered up about it.

    OK, that was a reach...
