Hi everyone old members and new!


My name is José Longoria although Ive been using the name Ambrose on the shave forums for a while

Its been years since Ive been an active member I actually dont recall ever really posting an introduction. A lot has happened from then until now. It was a new exciting time when I was most active and then at one point I was even a vendor handcrafting strops, restoring razors, honing. I would share as much as I could about everything I made a lot of amazing friends some still around others that have passed and I think of them often. I love custom everything brushes, razors, razor handles, straights and safety razors, as well as good coffee and causal chinese tea yancha and sheng. Times became hard so I had to stop the services and crafts and I got so busy with work. I eventually got laid off from that work as well and I started on my own business offering graphic branding design services which is where I have been for the past 7 years. Now I am finding my way back into all things shaving and hopefully if there is enough interest back into offering handcrafted strops, light razor restoration, honing and in the future re-plating

I plan to be more active in general and hopefully find my way back into crafting and services

If anyone is interested in strops or honing and even re-plating Id love to know. I would love to craft a new batch of strops as soon as possible the greatest yet with new branding / embossing. They will be created with new handcrafted tools new leather that is rich, thick, and smooth and with a tight natural cotton fabric. Ive added a few pictures of my strops from years ago

You can message me here or write me at ambroseshave@gmail.com Id love to hear from you

Thank you for reading im excited to be back
