    Do the handles come with a razor?

    I just need to know the type threads you need. If you are handy, I can just send the handle without the threads if you can supply them yourself. PM me and we can work something out.

    I have four ferrules due to arrive tomorrow. I decided to go ahead and put the #10 sheet metal screws in the handles.
    Here's the line up. @jimjo1031 , you ended up with #1 which was the prototype. If you would rather have a lathe turned handle, I can do that. It is just that I designated handles as they were asked for. Handle guys: PM me your preferences for finish if I haven't got them already. Thanks.

    Those handles look really good. I couldn't even tell a difference in the handle you did by hand vs the ones turned on the lathe.

    Four ferrules arrived in the mail today from Tom. They are beautiful, just what was ordered. I have fitted the four ferrules on four of the handles. You be the judge.

    This is the long handle, #3.

    This is the mahogany handle, #6.

    Here are the four ferrules with their new handles. I will finish the others when the new ferrules arrive.
