This vibrant wooden razor is handcrafted from colourful Padauk wood. The razor comes presented in a solid wood box filled with shavings for maximum presentation. The beautifully turned handle is very comfortable and sure to be a unique gift for someone special. The razor takes mach 3 blades and the set comes with 4 blades included.
You have the option of having a name or message engraved to add that personal touch.
Padauk is an exotic wood that is a bright orange or almost crimson wood when freshly cut, but oxidizes to a darker, rich purple-brown over time - although it stays redder than Indian Rosewood. Slightly harder and heavier than Indian Rosewood it is a good wood in all respects - stable, and easy to work with. It often grows in small groups and is reported to be common in dense equatorial rain forests.
A piece is of wood selected from seasoned stock for its grain and colour.
Each piece is carefully cut to show the best grain .
The wood is turned to size then sanded through 5 different grits of sand paper.
It is then rubbed with a bees wax mix before rounding off with a friction polish to provide a water resilient and durable finish.
After the pieces have been completed they are then assembled using premium fittings.
I do strongly recommend drying the handles after use. With proper care the finish should provide many years of use.Each razor is uniquely shaped and may vary slightly from pictured.
