Custom pieces at Elite Razor

Post by eskimo » Mon Nov 07, 2011 5:29 pm

Welcome to Elite Razor. We have a number of custom Merkur razors, as well as brushes and accessories available. Please let me know if you see a piece in the Gallery that is of interest and I can build your custom razor or brush for you.

Below is a Merkur 38C with a handle made of Bethlehem Olive wood.

This 34C has a handle made of Damascus Steel.

Thanks for looking.

Have you considered also selling just the handles? The threads should fit almost all 3-piece razor heads.

I once had a handle made to my specs from Elite. I didn't have to buy anything else.

I love them all, especially the steel handles. Are they heavy? I like heavier handles.

I strive to maintain the same weight distribution as the factory. As the core on the 2-piece razor needs to be hollow, the weight differential isn't that great, perhaps .05 to .1 ounce heavier.

I've been working with a couple of different resins and have finished several brush and razor handles. These are available on my site, along with many others, at http://www.eliterazor.com.

All the brushes are shown with a 24mm Silvertip knot, set at a 50mm loft

I have just completed a few new pieces, as shown below. These, and many more pieces are available on my site at http://www.eliterazor.com.

Wild Horse Jasper - 110mm overall height with a 24mm Silvertip knot set at a 50mm loft.

Wild Horse Jasper is associated with the birthstone month of January. Wild Horse Jasper is named for the location where it is mined, at the Wild Horse Canyon in Oregon. It belongs to the family of quartz. The name is Greek in origin, meaning “spotted or speckled stone” and Jasper was a favorite gemstone of ancient times and can be traced back to Greek, Hebrew, Persian, Latin, and Assyrian literature. In mythology, Jasper is said to have powers to keep evil and fatal insect or reptile bites at bay. This particularly handsome Wild Horse Jasper stone is prized for its' crimson and jet black veins.

Copper Laced Onyx - 110mm overall height with a 24mm Silvertip knot set at a 50mm loft.

Copper Laced Onyx is a member of the chalcedony family which also includes carnelian, agate, bloodstone, etc. Occurring naturally in a variety of colors, black onyx is polished to enhance appearance, a member of the quartz family. The name comes from the Greek word onyx which means nail of a finger or claw. Legend says that one day while Venus was sleeping Eros/Cupid cut her fingernails and left the clippings scattered on the ground. Because no part of a heavenly body can die, the gods turned them into stone which later became known as Onyx.

Olive Wood - 110mm overall height with a 24mm Silvertip knot set at a 50mm loft.

Olive wood is widely cultivated in sub-tropical areas of Europe, Africa and the Middle East for its fruit. The wood is hard, heavy and strong. It may be straight-grained or interlocked, often with distinctive swirling colors of tan, brown and black. Olive wood is highly regarded for furniture, bowls and utensils. The wood works beautifully and is well suited for wood turning.

hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and I wish you a happy New Year.

I have just added quite a few new brushes to my site at http://www.eliterazor.com, as well as added a category under Shaving Brushes that shows many of the brush shapes I regularly build. Please let me know if I can build a brush for you.
