Bill Ellis Razor

There's been a fair amount of chatter on the shaving forums lately about razor-making sensation William Ellis, so I thought I'd show off my own Ellis razor:

This was Bill Ellis's first razor.  Stainless steel, hardened to about 65RC.  The scales are made from oosik, which is the penile bone from a walrus.  Filework on the spine and shank, and a french point.

Here's a close-up of the spine.

And yes, it shaves as well as it looks.
