Wootz Razor with Hamon

A 15/16″ experimental razor. It was an experiment with differential heat treatment to see what a hamon would look like on a wootz razor. The wootz was smelted by Krzysztof Rusek. The scales were made from a couple of pieces of fossil sea cow bone from Mermaid Supplies that were vacuum cast in dyed resin.
I included a closeup of the blade after etching because the pattern is often hard to see in a picture featuring the whole blade.
