    Robert Smith CooncatBob of Bob's Razor Works

    Just read the news..Really really sad ! I don't even know him except for a few interactions through emails and PMs. A few artists have created this impact on me - the most recent ones were Steve Jobs and now Cooncat Bob. Yes, in the little world of DE Shaving, he was his own Jobs. RIP Bob..

    Anyone else thinking of polishing their Tradere handle?

    I received the head yesterday and was very surprised to see that the finish doesn't match with the handle. And I didnt like the looks of the razor with two different finishes.

    30mm Wood and Ivory Barrel Brush

    30mm knot with 52mm loft. Super dense knot, lathers well. Flow through is as expected for such a big knot.

    Rod Neep Extra Silvertip brushes

    I currently have three Rod Neep extra silvertip brushes 28,26,26 mm. All three a softer than my shavemac. The backbone also is better. First I bought one and I liked it vet much. So I sold two of my silvertip grade A brushes and got two more of his.

    Three new custom brushes - pre and post bloom

    Yes, it has a flat bottom and it stands well with full load of lather.. There is no stability issue whatsoever. It was first made round and then squared / filed by hand to make four flat faces.. So it has many facets in the end..

    Three new custom brushes - pre and post bloom

    The square with rounded corners wasn't easy to make. Rod went the extra mile to hand finish that. The picture doesn't do justice to how nice the brush is..
