I picked up this silver shaving stand which was missing the brush and I thought it needed a razor. So I made some acrylic to match the bottle that was with the set and spun up a new brush. I also made the Ivory for it as well.
For the razor I polished up a DeFi blade and then designed a set of scales that matches the shape of the stand itself. I think the design of the scales, and the washers matches the style of the set nicely.

Looks gorgeous. I haven't yet been able to pick up a beginner SR set and I'm extremely jealous!

Wow!

My initial reaction is always to sigh - done so very right. Style, the scale of it all right on the "Mark." (Groan...) Smile

Sorry for the delay in responding guys,, Sandy knocked me back on my heels for a few days. Today is the first I've had power since Monday morning.
As far as making my own razors,, I have two under my belt so far. A Kami, and a Western straight.

Thanks to all for the kind words. I appreciate it very much.

Yes it is very pretty. My wife insisted I leave it in the living room of all places. Not the razor though with a Granddaugher about.
Not sure if I showed them but a there was a question of building my own blades and I've only done two so far. I do plan on getting into this at a much deeper level.
Here they are. A Kamisori ( Giraffe bone with sculpted tapered spine and file worked brass liners) and a western style ( with file work and swept blade. Last photo is another brush I made the acrylic for then turned it and I made the strop too.

That brush is one of my favorites. I dropped it and it got a small chip ( darn tile floor ) which I was able to repair. But I've since spun a duplicate with a slightly larger knot and a bit taller height. I do like the fan shapes and the dense knot. The new one will be a 26mm, about the largest I like to use.
And here is another of my favorites.
