I ran across this website that sparked my interest in what is known as “wet shaving”. Since then, I have been wanting to try an old fashioned shave with a safety razor and foam applied with a brush.
I used to look at my grandpa’s safety razor sitting on the cabinet in the bathroom as a kid so I asked my mom if she happened to have that old razor since my grandpa has passed. She didn’t but she did remember that same razor.
I came across a video of a safety razor handle turned on the lathe with links provided as to where these heads can be purchased. I quickly got an order in for a three pack of safety razor heads and waited anxiously for their arrival.
I laminated some maple and black walnut together for the handle blank. I was able to make some time for the shop tonight and this is the result.
It’s finished with 3 coats of CA glue and some wax. The head is epoxied in the hole at the top of the handle.
This particular razor is for my oldest (16 yo) son. I have two heads left. One will be for myself.
I hope the shave is what I expect it to be. Thanks for looking!
