Ralf Aust 5/8 Razor with Inlaid African Blackwood Scales

£186.00

This stunning Ralf Aust razor has a 5/8 carbon steel blade with a satin finish, a round point and African blackwood scales. It has the usual “Ralf Aust Solingen” mark on the tang and the “Solingen Handarbeit” – handmade in Solingen – mark on the blade. African blackwood varies in colour from dark red to almost black and is a like a cross between cocobolo and ebony. But what makes these scales different from our other razors bearing african blackwood scales is the olivewood inlay which adds a beautiful contrast. The tang has jimping to both the upper and lower sides and the spine has a laser etched flower pattern to the top. All in all this goes to show that beautiful things do come in small sizes ! All Ralf Aust razors have a full hollow ground blade.
