Method of construction

Body of brass, blade holder from mild steel & handle centre from 1/4" steel plate
Handle plate silver soldered to the brass body
Prototype holder for surgical blades, not a success - still working on it !
Handle plates of cocobolo rivetted on & being shaped
As the surgical blade holder is still in the R & D stage, I fitted a traditional blade made from gauge plate & hardened. Seems to take a decent edge.
