Dear Gentlemen,

We are delighted to introduce the “JiM Creative Shaving” project. This project started with the idea of producing a new brush handle made of stainless steel, facing two important challenges. First, we were conscious of the weight that the use of stainless steel will suppose for the creation of a brush handle, so the piece of artwork should use just the necessary amount of stainless steel. Second, we would like to approach this project with an innovative and functional design, which leaded us to create a brush handle set.

The brush handle set is entirely produced in Barcelona, mechanized from a solid bar of stainless steel following an artisan production process. The finishing process also includes the mirror polish of the handle set. Here you have the outcome that fitted our requirements:

So far, we have been talking of a brush handle set, and now is time to give further details of what does a handle set means. Besides of using stainless steel of the highest quality in the production of the handle, our proposal builds upon a base and two interchangeably collars (with 25mm and 27mm of diameter to set knots of 24mm and 26mm, respectively). This is what we call a “shaving handle set”.

As for the weight, the handle base weights 80 grams, the 24 mm collar 55 grams and the 26 collar 50 grams. Depending on the configuration, the handle weights between 130 and 135 grams. Some more pictures will give a better description of our proposal.

The price for the handle set is 100 euros, plus registered shipping from Barcelona. For this initial batch, we have five handle sets on stock waiting to be shipped. If you are interested on ordering one of these handle sets, please contact us by private mail.

Finally, we have a limited quantity of silvertip badger hair knots - bought from a Chinese producer and from The Golden Nibs. We would prefer that you install the badger knots that you desire, although we can do that at an extra cost using the knots that we have. Here you have a picture of the handle with a 24mm silvertip knot:

and here another one with a 26mm silvertip knot:

We hope that you will find this handle set an interesting proposal to add to your shave nook!

Best wishes,

JiM Creative Shaving, Barcelona

Tis an interesting concept but for me too industrial a look and they might be slippery little devils when wet and soapy.

Dear gentlemen,

Today, we have used a brand new JiM CS handle (a non-polished prototype, that's why it's not shinning Biggrin ) for the SOTD. Here you have a picture before the handle was used, loaded with a 24mm TGN silvertip badger knot:

And now some pictures after it has been used lattering the Antica Barbearia Colla shaving soap:

Although the handle is made of stainless steel, it is warm at hand, giving a nice shaving experience. 

Kind regards,
