Box 42 for Cobra Razors

 Mike, a shaving friend in Louisiana, gifted me these two razors. I decided these razors needed a nice case to live in, so today turned out to be pretty enough to start the case. 

King Cobra
With metal handle, 136g
With black handle, 105g

Cobra Classic
100g

I built the case with wood that I had on hand. Here it is after I had installed the hardware and lined the inside. Next, I will stain and finish the box. That will happen tomorrow, the Good Lord willing.


Box 42

Inside Box 42

Update: 16 Jan 2021

9 AM: I weighed the box and razors together and they came out to 1 pound 1.8 oz. I just finished staining the box and started putting the polycrylic finish on it.

12:20 Here it is all put back together and ready to go.

Oscar11 Synthetic
Cobra Classic
Feather Artist Club Blade

The Cella Shave Soap was applied with the Oscar11 Synthetic. I shared today's shave with two razors. The Cobra Classic did the right side of my face, and the EndGem was used on the left. Two passes and touch ups with the Cobra Classic with the Feather Artist Club blade and the EndGem Speed Razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Lustray Spice After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed... I am planning on doing a video with the Cobra Classic next week.
