Close Shave - Sterling Skull Razor
My Masonic Brother Dave is obsessed with safety razor shaving (he has 19 converts on his record and only 1 that has gone back to a Mach 3.) On my birthday he presented me with a Merkur razor, a badger brush and some shaving soap. Well now, I am obsessed. I can't believe I actually look forward to shaving everyday. So, I decided to take this healthy obsession to the next level and start making some shaving equipment to share with others.
The shaving handle is hand cast---made in the USA--- in solid (not plated!) sterling silver with a chrome plated twist off safety razor head from India. Overall length is 4.5". Blades Not Included*.
I love skulls as a reminder to be mindful and present (especially with a double edge blade at my throat) while having the gratitude for being able to enjoy the simple act of shaving. In the future, everyone will want to experience their 15 minutes of joy in the morning.
My wife, Jodi, lovingly and generously made room in the medicine cabinet for all of my products and fast growing collection of modern and vintage safety razors. We are now planning a display case in the bathroom for them.
