Locally made stainless handles

Postby RiverValleyTrading » Sat Jul 13, 2019 9:46 am

Hi all,

We have been wokring with a local artisan to make stainless steel razor and brush handles.

Still some fine tuning requried, but these came out very nice.

We also tried a couple of brush handles. These came ou fantastic! (HEAVY!!)

Not the best pic, but I'll post a few more once I set in the knots.

The Razor handles look nice RVT.
As a suggestion, put the knurling closer to the top of the handle where you naturally grip it.

I'm interested in seeing how the SS brush handle takes off.

Good on you! Tried a while back, but everyone wanted huge quantities before quoting. One guy even wanted me to partially fund knurling equipment/dies/cutters. Razorocks's stainless razors are pretty affordable, I guess you will beat them in price, or will you only offer handles?

Thanks Jaco. We are looking at only handles for now. Razor heads are a bit more tricky.
