The Rocket has Landed

I sent my Russian Rocket straight to Tom White to be honed. He did the following:
I gave it my Naniwa progression 1,3,5,8&12k. Then I gave it a few laps on my 1 micron lapping film. Then gave it a good Stropping on my Latigo. 

Well, it arrived today, and I am looking forward to my first shave with it tomorrow, Straights Saturday.

Old Spice Mug from Hospice Home Store

I found this Old Spice Mug today at the Hospice Home Store. Now it has a new home.




Seven Day Razor Stand

I made this seven razor stand from a piece of oak and finished it with polycrylic finish. I put felt pads on the bottom of the stand to keep the wood from contacting the counter.
