I would like to offer two of my razor handles as thanks for the support this community has given my work over the past year.

Both handles are 3.25" long and are threaded to accept Merkur, Edwin Jagger, Muhle, Weber, or any heads threaded 0.8mm-5.

I'm afraid I do need to limit this Give-Away to domestic US addresses.

I will draw a winner on New Year's day, so please reply to this thread that you are in before 1/1/13 and note which handle you prefer, stone or wood.

The handles are shown below by themselves and with a EJ head. This Give-Away is for the handle only.

Thanks, Bob

Gold Laced Quartz - 1.6 oz.

Gold Laced Quartz, which is found in mountainous areas throughout the United States, such as Dahlonega, Georgia, which was home to a significant gold rush period in American History. Dahlonega was a rough patch of ground in northern Georgia back in the early 1800's and was also home to the Cherokees. Settlers found their way there and the discovery of Gold brought in waves of panners and miners, leading to the founding of the town of Dahlonega and later the Dahlonega Mint. The town of Dahlonega prospered for a short period but was soon overshadowed by the newer discovery of Gold in California which pulled away many of its miner inhabitants. The Federal mint in Dahlonega continued to operate up until the Civil War but never reopened afterwards.

Amboyna Burl - 1.4 oz.

Amboyna burl is found in Indonesia, especially on the Andaman group of islands. Amboyna burl is one of the rarest & most expensive woods in the world. The burly part of the log is often very small, yielding only wood in small dimensions. The color ranges from deep yellow orange to deep red and after finishing Amboyna burl reveals a depth & liveliness in color like found in no other. Amboyna burl was a popular, frequently used wood in the Jugendstil epoch in the twenties. It was also the first burl wood to be used by Rolls Royce for dashboards.
