Ok, had a couple hours this morning, so I figured what the heck!
Here is the fruit of my folly.

TGN Silvertip 24 mm knot

Vintage piece of Honeyroll Buffalo Horn

Mokume butt cap, with center mosaic pin.

If this keeps up, I might have to invest in a lathe!

I gave it a 2 minute soak in warm water, and it bloomed to more than double its original diameter. it is near 70 mm wide at the moment.

Thanks for looking, let me know if you see any thing I need to change.

Pierre,

That's an awesome looking brush... How do I add one of these to my boxes?

Looking good, really like the bambooish shape one the handle and the mokume adds a nice bit of class.

Nice work! I can only wonder what they would look like if you had a lathe.

Lovely! I like your straight razors a lot, too. Man, it's craftsmanship turning into art.
