Well, after the great work Bob (Eskimo here) did with the Blue Dyed Elder Box Wood handles on my short handled Merkurs, I decided it was time to have Bob re-do my long handled Merkurs as well.

For the long handled, I decided to go with stone for the weight. For my 12c I chose Malachite, for the 38c I went with Chilean Blue Lapis and for the 39c I went with Bloody Basin Jasper. So now, here are the pics (all sides shown):

I just secured a "special" brush and I'm hoping Bob will have success in crafting a matching razor handle as he did for me with my "Tiger" brush...

Good show, my friend. Those are striking razors. With such razors how can anyone even think of not shaving every day?
