This is a very interesting ible and well worth the time to check it out.
I loved his idea and incorporated it into a gift idea. I made a denim strap to hang in a dry area to sharpen razors. It is made from denim jeans and a small piece of bicycle inner tube. These would make awesome Christmas gifts for any guy or gal that uses a razors.
For the gift I would include a copy of the introduction to Jake's instructable's on keeping your razor sharp and giving his URL page so they can watch his video.
You could include a razor and shaving cream with the gift package.
You could had a small strip of print fabric to the top or add embellishments that complimented the receivers interest. You could do stamping with the persons name on it.
Making a loop to hold the razors would be so useful.
I will be making more of these after all the holidays and be embellishing them so they are very attractive. This one was my sample one and it worked out great.
Can't you just see denim with pink lace and iron on rhinestones!
Maybe skull and bones for the guys.
