    Sure, just PM me. I'll be honest though, I'm not making brushes again until after I retire. That should be in March but I'm sure I'll stick around a little longer than that to deal with a few issues unless I get fired or pissed. Either of the 3 options will work well for me (retire, fire or quit). Unfortunately quitting doesn't sit well with me, damn the Marine Corps anyway. Well, I learned something from the Corps, lol. So we're dealing with the other 2 options. When I'm ready I'll contact the owners of this web site because it'll be the only place they'll be available.

    Honestly, razors like this one, from a skilled artisan (or anyone willing to craft a tool like this) just makes something like shaving ridiculously enjoyable.
    I love this hobby!

    I tell them at work; I’m neither retiring nor quitting. You’re gonna hafta fire me. That way, I’ll get a severance package;)
    Anyhoo, I would love an Oscar brush. I’ll be receiving a fair amount of $$ in August for 40 years of service with my company. I plan on getting a custom, straight, strop, and brush. I’ve drooled for some time at the Oscars, but knew you weren’t making any.

    Thanks, I’m very happy with this razor. It looks and feels like a half hollow.

    I used my Kiebitz razor this morning. This is a razor that never disappoints. It was a nice two pass shave.

    homemade boar, Omega 49 knot

    Really nice shave this morning. It was my first time with the Grooming Dept. soap, excellent shave and post shave feel. I liked the scent, very nice ,IMO. I bought a Captain's Choice lather bowl with the ridges on the bottom and it was the first time for that too. I normally just face lather but it sure made quick work of getting the correct consistency of lather. Have a good one.

    So yesterday I fully rehoned it finishing on the SG20K, so happy I did.

    Full disclosure: yes, I had a few beers last night and I am viewing this on my phone... But those scales seem to have a really cool pattern to them! Add a cool inlay and a worked spine and I think you have a wonderful razor!
    That thumbnotch and double finger notch creates such a cool design. Glad you got it shaving the way you want!

    Keith, your praise for your Flic(s) got me to pull the trigger on a project Flic. A whopping $10.50 shipped to my door. I am a little scared:signs002:
