Magglar, you sent me a PM, but your box says magglar has reached their private message quota so your message could not be sent.  But to answer the question you asked;  No I do not have the box for the Rockwell Razor.

Totally agree. I have two others that I love; a 26mm and a 30mm beauty.

Thanks.

I love Bob's brushes, too. I had one of my Wolf Whiskers handles made with an Elite Manchurian. I do have a question, though. Are you sure that white brush is Onyx? It sure looks like Tourmaline laced Quartz to me.

Puma, I've sent an email to Bob asking for his help to confirm the stone.  Thanks for your note.

my igneious/metamorphic petrology is somewhat out of date, but this looks like dendtritic opal or agate to me.  It is most definitely not quartz.

it looks like some form of chalcendony with inclusions.  If the inclusions are tourmaline, then they are most likely the schrol species.

I've never seen Onyx be any color other than black. Here is a link to a tourmaline and quartz brush that he currently has available. https://eliterazor.com/product/tourmalin...z-24-26mm/

onyx is most commonly black, but color is by far the worst method of identifying minerals.  Onyx and agate are different forms of chalcedony which is microcrystalline quartz.  So same SiO2 formula, but different in terms of (among others) depositional environments.  

I really want this brush, but can't afford it...  Cheers to whoever buys it and I really love the 2 band manchurian.  I have one in maple burl and it is a stunner as well.

You are correct about color and identification of minerals, but I think in this case, color is a good reason to think that that handle is not onyx. I like that Bob works in stone. Not many brush makers do.

OK everyone. I heard from Bob. And the answer is...

“The handle is made from Wild Horse Jasper, which is associated with the birthstone month of January. Wild Horse Jasper is named for the location where it is mined, at the Wild Horse Canyon in Oregon. It belongs to the family of quartz. The name is Greek in origin, meaning “spotted or speckled stone” and Jasper was a favorite gemstone of ancient times and can be traced back to Greek, Hebrew, Persian, Latin, and Assyrian literature. In mythology, Jasper is said to have powers to keep evil and fatal insect or reptile bites at bay. This particularly handsome Wild Horse Jasper stone is prized for its' crimson and jet black veins.”

Bob


So my apologies to all for my misunderstanding. I will correct the listing ASAP.

jasper is another microcrystalline quartz so you're good.  It is actually usually red or brown which is what threw me off.

I just found some posts on another forum where Bob shared pictures of the first Wild Horse Jasper brush and razor handles that he made. They look like your brush to me. I don't want to share the link to another forum on here, but just google elite razor wild horse jasper and you'll see the hits from B&B. Bob basically gives the same description as above word for word.

Razor is now sold, leaving just the Teak Brush with Manchurian Knot.  Really guys, $80 bucks is just a few bucks more than the knot itself.  It's about the cheapest way to experience Bob Quinn's best.
