I already have 5 of Bob's handles and the shave cabinet is getting crowded. But, if the three sectioned bronze handle for the client in Spain becomes a production piece, I'm a likely buyer. Great work. I'm working on shortening and simplifying the spindle section to make it easier to turn. I would ...

Get a back up Sheraton, there's no reason with reasonable care that it won't out last you.

Looks like a Merkur clone, back in the day there were numerous companies in the Solingen (cutlery) region of Germany making safety razors.
Only Merkur remains and they were purchased by Dovo several years ago.

What blade are you using?
The only way to tune a fix head razor is by using a less or more aggressive blade.
I like Derby and IPs in my otherwise aggressive razors.

He ran the blank through his planer exposing the grain and we could see that it had solid eyes form end to end. I decide that to get the bes...

Most of my clients want longer handles bit I recently had one send me his Merkur 38c for reduction.
He wanted a finished razor the same length as a HD with a 3 inch handle.

Latest from Bob's Razor Works

I recently had a client ask for a Flared knob on his Bull Mastiff handle.
I liked the look so much that I'm now offering it as a regular option.
BTW. Orders for Christmas should be made ASAP.

Not all sheep aren woolly, Barbados Black Bellied Sheep have hair instead of wool.
Whether this hair would be suitable for a shaving brush is a question that hasn't been answered.
