I am looking for a few more Bob's Razor Works (cooncatbob) custom sets with the wood handles and matching brushes (or just the razors and wood handles separately).

Would like to find a BRW Merkur slant head razor.

Also looking for metal razor handles that I do not already own so if you have a razor or handle that you are not using, let me know what you have.

Let me know what you have even if you don't want to sell them Dodgy

I have a wonderful BRW Twist TTO conversion I was planning to list.. I know Bob made a few, but I haven't come across any others.

It started life as a Gillette Twist with a cheap plastic handle. Bob removed the original handle and grafted a Bull Mastiff Deluxe to the head.

If you have interest in it, shoot me a PM.

I should say that I have both New models (LC/SC), R41, Knack, Tech, and progress models Bob made. I am mainly looking for custom sets or a slant head custom but please post or PM anything that you might be thinking of selling (or even if you aren't)

What does this mean? I have a number of Bob's razor handles, which I use with both LC & SC replated New heads. Are you saying his handles were meant to go specifically with certain heads? I never saw hiim market them in this way.

No...... saying that they were bought with those heads which were re-plated to match the handles. Bob sold handles and also sold handles with heads. You could also send a head and have it plated to match the handle you were buying.

I would be interested in purchasing any "free range" handles that I do not already have

His Progress reworks required that you send in a progress and the head was used on a custom handle and everything re-plated to match. The same was true for the Slant head custom he offered.

Another Bump for you. This falls under the one I have, but don't want to sell. Three years ago, I picked up a BRW Improved handle with an Old Type head to celebrate a year off cigarettes. It is probably my favorite razor. Here's an old pic of it.
