Heirloom razor from my pop. Scales and blade clean up done by @Substance, very happy with it! Timber is Acacia acuminata, a wattle endemic to WA. One we grow for host tree for our Sandalwood. Dense wood with a sweet smell in the heartwood, which is how it acquired the common name "jam" or "raspberry jam".







Potosi razor. Bit of history in the last photo, an article from NLA website
