Bocote Wood 22mm Silvertip Badger Shaving Brush & DE Safety Razor Gift Set (B20)
This custom, one of a kind set includes a Bocote wood Double Edge (DE) Safety Razor, 22mm Silvertip Badger shaving brush and handmade wood stand that features finger joint construction. The knots are nicely packed and they have good backbone. The brush and handle together are 5 1/4 tall. The DE Safety Razor head components and tail piece are chrome. The DE Safety Razor is a 3 piece stamped steel design. The two piece head unscrews from the handle for blade replacement. This entry level DE razor provides a non-aggressive shave that is good for either the new or experienced wet shaver. The handle with DE Razor head is 4 long. The set pictured is the set you will receive.
The handmade stand features finger joints cut at precise angles to obtain the correct fit. The silky smooth satin matte finish is Tung Oil and is kept fresh with a periodic rub down of butcher block finish. A small sample of the butcher block finish is included with your purchase. Because the wood is naturally oily, marine grade epoxy is used to glue the finger joints. Yellow and white glues (polyvinyl) don't work well on exotic hardwoods and will fail over time.
The shaving brush and razor handle's finish (Cyanoacrylate--i.e., Superglue) is durable, highly polished cannot be penetrated by water. When using the brush and razor, you can get the handle as wet as you want during use and not worry about the wood being damaged. To maintain the finish you just need to wipe it dry after each use. Don't buy a handmade brush or razor unless you know exactly what is used for the finish. I make hundreds of custom sets each year and this is the only brush/razor finish that will last for years in the tough shaving environment.
My shaving products are made one at a time by me at a pace that allows for the crafting of a unique and beautiful addition to your home or collection. These items make great gifts for those hard to get men and women in your life.
