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.

The flared knob is cool. Reminds me of a guitar strap button.

Nice!

Here's a pair of custom TTOs I just completed for a client.
He provided the donor Knack razors.
I reversed the Knack's TTO knob to give a better transition with the new handles.

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.

I'm one of those who favor longer and heavier, but I have to admit this BullMastiff Deluxe in the short version is a very handsome (and I suspect on the heavy side) razor. Now that I've seen this one, I'm trying to visualize a gold-plated version of this handle for my 37G Slant.

Sometimes you just get lucky, when I went to my sources studio looking for a piece of Amboyna Burl I was lucky that he had 1 piece left from his last shipment.
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 best use out of this blank with no waste I'd turn 2 long handles end to end.
Now this can be kinda scary as Burl wood is all twisty grain without the long grain running from end to end that a normal piece of wood has.
This blank was 11 inches long and I was concerned with it snapping in half due to a defect in the grain structure.
It was a bitch to turn, I had to support the backside with my hand as I turned it, but it was without a doubt the nicest piece of Burl I'd ever turned.
I sent the client some pictures giving him the choice of which handle he wanted, he sent a reply that he'd like to buy both handle.
I was going to offer the 2nd handle here but alas they're both sold along with a Burl tipped Bull Mastiff handle.
