Razor handles turned on the lathe from acrylic blanks for Christmas gifts. Turning this stuff makes a mess but they polish up nicely. Sanded up through 2000 grit and then polished with automotive headlight polish. After switching to a safety razor from the out-of-control-cost commercial products (i.e. Mach III), I will never go back. Blades are cheap and the shaves are great. I cannot recall which supplier the hardware kits came from.
Thanks for looking.

Nicely done. I’ll bet these were very well received.

These are awesome looking. I’ve been using safety razors for a few years. the Mach III / Fusion etc always made me breakout and cost a fortune. My razors are both off the shelf stainless units. I’m going to have find one of these kits.

Great work!
