A new handle for an old razor.
#1
I've been wanting to try to make a handle for a Schick E or G. I just couldn't bring myself to destroying a good original handle. Thanks to mayer57619 who sent me this razor head. (It was already missing a handle.) I used a drill press, band saw, table router and lots of hand sanding to make this acrylic/resin handle from a pen blank I picked up at my local Woodcraft.
BTW I'm terrible with razor I. D. Could someone kindly tell me which Schick this is?

E-3, I think.
Boar brushes, brass razors, and hard pucks ARE traditional wet shaving. Everything else is modern day fluff for the girly men.

Oh, yes, that is a real beauty. I have made several replacement handles for Schick E/Gs from different woods, and I can appreciate the time and effort it takes for such a little piece. Beautiful, just beautiful.

Thanks guys. And especially thank you Jayaruh. This was a fun project and I plan on doing more. Definitely A LOT of hand sanding though. I went from 200 grit all the way to 12,000 grit wet sanding.

That is a great looking razor! It must have taken some skill and effort to achieve but well worth it.

Nope.

Two patent numbers on the head - it's a Type G.

Without the original handle, I'll not even attempt to guess which one.

Beautiful job!

G doesn't have side flaps.

This has flaps and two patent numbers, GE?
