    Critiques welcomed (unless their about the choice of blade, it was a request...).

    A friend has a Case Imp but wanted something bigger and this was the biggest I had on hand:

    Fromm 50 Red Head (8/8 blade, it's a bigun') - razor on bottom:

    And here's what she looks like now with some new CA finished padauk shoes on:

    Thanks! I was pretty happy with how she turned out. She's on her way to Ambrose (most straight guys know of him) for honing and should be one awesome chopper! I really love the look of padauk, pictures just don't do it justice...

    Got a straight Razor but can't get it sharp enough to shave with. Any suggestions?

    What are you using to hone it? For my straights I start off on a 1k stone (usually just a couple passes), then 4k, 8k, 12k and then leather. Definitely different than sharpening a knife, that's for sure!

    Looks nice, I need to polish up the sides of mine, but it's edge is good.
