I picked up this razor kit recently off of Amazon.com. It’s actually a Rockler product and it’s a fun little project to complete. Similar in almost every way to turning a pen; this kit uses a three-inch brass tube insert. I used my #2 mandrel to turn this. The kit comes in a brass or chrome look. I chose a chrome look for mine. The kit uses Mach 3 Razor blades.
For this razor I chose to use blood wood for the handle. Hopefully not an ironic choice. The handle, and really the whole razor looks fantastic. Rockler also sells separately a nice chrome stand that goes with the razor. You may want to keep that mind if you want a stand to match your razor. Unfortunately they don’t have one in brass.
I put links at the bottom of this post where you can find some of the items I used to turn this.
For a little extra help with this project I also put together a video of how I made this below.
