So I recently acquired a Cooncat Bob's stainless and wood handle with a bit of madness in mind for my favorite English Ever Ready.

The pictures aren't great but I'm tired and not going to take any more right now. Smile None the less, I thought I'd share my own personal madness with everyone.

The head is bronze although that's part of the pictures that isn't showing very well. In the end, I thought it was a fine creation to remember a talented man that is no longer with us.

Nice, Jay! I'm constantly amazed at how man will make objects of art out of the tools used for such mundane tasks as shaving. Your work with the tools of our interest is indicative of that desire.

Jay, that's a beauty, do you know what the wood is?

It was reported to be Zebra -- while normally the lines are straighter in zebra wood. It can have some curve and being such a small piece, it's hard to say for sure.

Yeah it could be that, as you say over such a small piece and a circular one too the grain can look much different than it would look like on a door or a table. You'd have to be pretty selective of where in the zebra wood you took your piece from to ensure you get some grain variation. Wood is always challenging in wet service applications too.
Thanks,
Mark
