Love that lineup Jason!
Nice choice Primo!
The guy who gave me this stuff said it takes forever to dry. I believe other species may vary due to tightness of grain.
Definitely MAYhem worthy Dave !
Just amazing Gary!
Well, based on what this guy told you and what I had asked, then maybe try a different wood that would be "drier". However, I wouldn't know what to suggest because you have to find a wood type that is "dry" and I guess medium hardness so that you can easily shape it and also have stability. Heck, what do I know?
I usually turn with dry white birch or maple but he didnt have any pieces that big to make bowls . He sent me a pic from in the woods of the yellow birch and I replied "YES " Please. Ill let it dry out then make a smaller bowl than I intended I guess .
It’s 3.5”, Danny! It’s just perfect for me!
Wonderful Williams Wednesday shave compliments of the above lineup. The Autostrop is a darn tank . Its worn and bad looking but shaves like it just rolled out of the factory. If we only built stuff like this today. This combination really hit the spot for me tonight. 5:30 AM start tomorrow so I may not appear until the evening. Have a great day/ night gents
Thank you, Patrick.
I guess you would have to go the trial and error route in order to figure it out.
Thanks, it looked longer than that. My handle is 3.25. Take care.
Very nice shave and setup Patrick!
Beautiful shave, Patrick. Take care.
I have a little Russian stainless steel on the way in. I am so excited.
I was window shopping and looked at this set about a week ago on Homelike's website. Y'all know how it is.....we all do it.
This barely used set popped up tonight at a price that was hard to resist.
The Homelike Shaving "Colibri" set with four baseplates.
0.80, 1.10, 1.30 and 1.50 mm blade gap. I think the base plates are serialized with the same serial number.
Should be in soon. The set was in the States.
Yes exactly as I forgot over time what wood does what. Shameful because I spent many hard days working in the woods and many more hunting.I should know my trees better .
Thanks Danny. I'm so excited about going to work tomorrow that i can't sleep.....said no one. You take care too my friend
Thanks Joe I love walking out of the Bathroom feeling smooth and smelling good.
The set looks gorgeous! I am sure that you will get great shaves with it Danny!
I hear those are great razors Danny. Actually Natalia uses one to keep her legs nice and smooth
Click on pic for a closer view. Dont say you weren't warned !
