Like many others, I have ditched my cartridge razors and went back a few decades. If I have the option to make or buy something, I always chose to make it. These are enjoyable to create and I have made several. There are razor heads available, but no information on how to create or attach them to a wooden handle. Here is what works for me and how I made this lovely Koa handled double edged razor below.
Tools I used to create this:
1/2" parting tool
Round nose scraper
Step 1: Source the Materials
With some diligent internet searches, I was able to find a double edge safety razor head at an online retailer called thegoldennib.com. The head is made by Parker and is a fairly decent one. I also sourced a 6 inch long and 1 inch thick piece of Koa wood from Hawaii
