I already have an ikon bulldog handle
I decide to make my ikon's Shave Craft 101 handle shorter and more beautiful.

That's really cool.

It's not clear to me how you made the handle shorter with this modification. Maybe you could explain the process in words as well as in pictures? Plus tell us where you got that beautiful blue acrylic ring?

I already had an ikon bulldog handle
When the ikon Shave Craft 101 arrived i saw that the handles were not the same,you can see it clearly
Also there is no logo in the Craft's 101 handle.
I didn't wanted to destroy the first so i decide to shorten the second,any metal lathe can do the job
The smooth part of the handle was cutted,was only 1.6mm, the barbed part stay untouched in purpose.
The majority of my handles are about 76-79mm long,i don't want more.
The connection was made from aluminium but was too light so i found another material.

You can buy acrylic rods from TheGoldenNib store.
