First use of this re-handled Schick still not sure if it's a late E or a G. Either way it shaved great. I will have to do a comparison shave with ones I know to be a G and an E soon.

I made the handle slightly longer than the ones on my other E or Gs and it feels wonderful. Although if I make another I think I will go a bit bigger yet.

That's what I thought, but couldn't see it well enough, I'm gonna stick with '45~'46 transition model, using E spring on G razor, but it has a nice handle and it doesn't live in the landfill, that's what matters! Wink

and it doesn't live in the landfill, that's what matters! Wink That right there. Absolutely!

Bravo! Excellent work. I can't get over how well that turned out.

I doubt I can match the work I see from GAW9576 and Jayaruh but I got enough to make an attempt.....
All in the 1st pic and 1 piece from the 2nd pic. I prefer the 1 from the 2nd pic but afraid I'll mess it up......

The one the head is touching would look nice, black and gold.
Boar brushes, brass razors, and hard pucks ARE traditional wet shaving. Everything else is modern day fluff for the girly men.

I agree with Toby. I think the black would look best. Or possibly the one to the right of it depending on what that looks like on the side. Those blanks should be big enough for 2 handles that proper size each. What tools do you have to work with. There are certain order of operations that will make things easier depending on what tools you have.

In person I'm really leaning towards this one. It's 3 inches. The others are 5 inches so too small for 2 handles I think

Looks African, and a bit monochromatic with the gold head, but you are the one who has to like it not me.

I would work that handle by hand, I don't see any need for heavy equipment.

I'm sure that one will look quite nice when finished. Especially without the others to compare it to. It was just not my top choice if you were looking for opinions. As TobyC already said it's your taste that really matters on material selection for your razor. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
