A Damascus Razor – The Box For It


I figured I should make a box for this one. After all, it is not a cheap razor. I’m still not very good with the boxes as I am with the razors, but I’ll get there. This one has dovetail joints and is made out of African Amazique wood. I put an escutcheon oval out of sterling silver on one end with the engraved name of the new owner.

I did not include photos of that to protect the innocent from being bonked on the head by his little Mrs. Word gets around, y’know. If any of y’all want to know how to make your own boxes, leave a comment here and I’ll see if I can put that task on my plate of things to do.

Box, razor, knife, barber pole, whatever you happen to be working on at the time, when you feel like doing it. You name it, cause I was raised in a shop and I'd like to see the work and hear what you have to say about it.

Instead of the box, how about ressurecting an older idea - Pinning Scales 101. It would be a nice finish to the Making Scales 101 series.
