Case for Supply Provision 2.0

I was asked to make a case for a Supply Provision Injector Razor. Here is what I have so far.



I put the hardware on the case.


I used my Supply Provision razor for these shots. It stores the razor with three heads.






Two Classic Lather Catcher Handles

I was asked to make another lather catcher handle, so I figured while I was at it, I would make two.










Shave of the Day - 4/25


Proraso Pre Shave
Williams
Jayaruh #284
Pal Injecto-Matic
Personna
CWR
Thayer's Lemon WH
Aqua Velva Musk

I started off with Proraso Pre Shave. The Williams Mug Shaving Soap face-lathered well with the Jayaruh #284 synthetic brush. I did two passes with the Pal Injecto-Matic Razor with a Personna blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Thayer's Lemon WH and then Aqua Velva Musk AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

PIF for 1000th Post on TOST

I put together this PIF to commemorate my 1000th post on TOST: a Pal Injectomatic razor, Jayaruh #258, and six Ted Pella Personna blades loaded into a Schick blade loader.




Shave of the Day - 4/24


Proraso Pre Shave
Tabac
Jayaruh #284
Darwin Hollow Ground Safety / Schick H1
Darwin HG Razor / Schick Proline B20
CWR
Thayer's Lemon WH
Aqua Velva Musk

I started off with Proraso Pre Shave. The Tabac Shaving Soap face-lathered well with the Jayaruh #284 synthetic brush. I did one pass with the Darwin Hollow Ground Safety Razor with a Darwin Hollow Ground blade and didn't seem to make a dent. I took the blade and stropped it on my big strop 40 laps on the linen side and 40 laps on the leather. I started a second pass, but there was not much difference. I ended up using my Schick H1 with a Schick Proline B20 blade to accomplish a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Thayer's Lemon WH and then Aqua Velva Musk AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

Darwin Hollow Ground Safety Razor

I got this Darwin Hollow Ground Safety Razor on loan from Tom White on TOST. I thought I would make a video on how it works. I have been shaving with it this week. It is a very interesting and well made razor.


Jayaruh #274

This handle was one of five I made a while back. It is the last to be finished. I completed it today by setting it with an Omega Pro 49 boar knot.
