This is a wonderfully handcrafted Walnut wood shaving set. Comprising of a Mach 3 Gillette razor handle, a silvertip badger hair shave brush and matching stand. The wood used in these sets is sourced locally in Donegal and is a perfect example of the quality of the woods in my local area.
You have the option of having a name or short message engraved onto the razor handle add that personal touch.
The set will come packaged in a box filled with wood wool for maximum presentation. Included will be a small card giving information on the wood used and care instructions to help your new set last for years to come.
This setwill be made to order and you can have a say on any particular shape you prefer something different to what is shown
How a set is created:
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.

About the wood:
Walnut is not a native tree. The two species commonly used are European walnut Juglans regia, and American or black walnut, Juglans nigra. Both are only occasionally found growing in Ireland but produce excellent and highly prized timber. European walnut can be quite variable in colour, but is typically a greyish-brown with streaks of lighter and darker wood, often with a noticeable waviness.
