The Yates H is my favorite razor. Always a great shave.I would like that contest that statement. I've gone through my fair share of razors. I fact, I am all but financially ruined by letting myself get carried away.
A while ago I aqcuired a Yates 921 H plate and I've been using it almost exclusively.
It's also possible that I finally figured out how to get a decent shave under my belt. But it's the Yates that really stands out for me.
Ofcourse today my Heritage gibbs replica arrived, so I will be using that for a while. But I'm pretty confident and have no need to explore any other options. I can really and honestly say I'm done. I've already sold most of my collection. Some are still up for sale. Very few will be kept.
Grail razors exist!
Congrats BTW, Guido. I know you were looking for this. It looks great, I'm sure you'll enjoy it!
All this grail talk makes me want to say it...
only the penitent man will pass
Don't make me look at the Yates (again)
So is Yates having a Black Friday sale?
I have a few extra razor stands, Guido.Thanks David! The Den is ‘complete’ (I have no empty razors stands left). My time to PIF some will eventually come too. But this one is a keeper for sure!
I thought I was done buying razors for a while too.Once you are on the mobius path there is no escape.
Rabbit holes are filled with mobius paths.I don't know..... Rabbit holes have at least two entrances.... so if you go down one... you can eventually come out the other side somewhere.
I can assure no wood lathes were used making these razor and brush stands. (no metal lathes either)So that's my problem! Inkwell stands are super fast and easy on a wood lathe. I either have to give them away or buy more razors. I would love to have a metal lathe... and the years of perfecting skills that SOME PEOPLE have.
(I can really knock 'em out when I hurry and accept a rougher finish and an off-center hole. )
A router and a saber saw or jigsaw? That's how I'd make them, but I don't have a band saw. I'd probably buy a router table though. I don't have one of those. I used to clamp my router to a Work Mate though I wouldn't recommend that. I did the same thing with my hand held power planer. When you are on the job site, you have to get creative every so often.
