This a razor handle that I did a few months back, like the title says I used no lathe to comlplete it.
It is made out of a pen blank of Argentine Lignum Vitae, a Woodcraft chrome razor kit and crushed Turquoise.
It is all done with hand tools and my trusty Dremel tool with lots and lots of hand sanding.
It is finished with C.A. Glue, This was a fun project and I love the weight when you use it.
This is a project my dad did get to see done, I just had for forgot to upload it.
Thanks for looking.

Nice job, and no lathe? Very impressive

I was just looking into making one of these, but for a safety razor. Looks good, that Lignum Vitae is an excellent choice!
