Since I can’t get in front of my tablesaw or workbench because the wife is busy making her fabulous cutting boards, I am resigned to the lathe. That’s OK with me because I love making these. Custom double edge razors seem to be the hot sellers this year! I cannot keep up with the demand. I get to turn maybe 2 a day since work has been so busy but they sell the same day I post them. These are not at all easy to turn as there are no kits, mandrels or bushings like the Mach3 razors.
In order they are:
Cocobolo (awesome blank)
Cocobolo brush and razor combo
Olivewood cartridge razor
Black and white acrylic
East indian rosewood
All finished with about 20 coats of CA and polished on the lathe with Hut ultra gloss plastic polish (this stuff is like magic).
I just received 10 heads on Wednesday and I need more already. I made myself one of these several months ago and it provides a fantastic shave.
