Shaving Gift

If you are after a gift to truly spoil that someone special in your life, then look no further.
This stunning custom shaving gift is made with Elm wood burl in combination with green resin mixed with touches of white and gold.
This is a shaving kit to love for years to come.
The shaving set comprises of a safety razor which takes mach3 blades, A shaving brush and a stand to hold them.
Traditional shaving has really had a comeback and men are turning what some see as a chore into an enjoyable experience.
This is a great idea as a gift for him, especially if it for a 5th anniversary gift which is of course wood.

My shaving sets have been featured in GQ magazine 3 times which is a great personal achievement for me and testifies to their quality and appeal.

***Wet shaving kit in Elm wood hybrid material***

This set has been made using Elm burl combined with green, gold and white resin.
The razor takes Mach 3 blades and the set comes with 4 blades included. These can be replaced from any good chemist or shop when needed.

Oak wood is exceedingly strong, heavy and durable. It is an attractive light colour with a prominent grain and is resistant to fungal attack, thanks to its dense constitution and long-living nature, which must equip the tree for its long lifetime.
The shade of Elm wood can vary from tree to tree and branch to branch. When a natural finish or oil is applied, the variations and contrasts of this gorgeous material shine, creating a beautiful natural feature in itself without the need for heavy ornamentation.
In this case, I am using the burl of the tree for lumber. Burls are the large roundish growths that naturally occur on many species of trees. The grain within burls is tightly swirled and highly figured.

***The creation process***

Each piece of wood burl is selected from seasoned stock for its grain and colour.
Each piece is carefully cut to show the best grain before fitting to a mould. The mould is then filled with resins of the colours desired and swirled to give a wonderful effect.
The block of wood and resin is turned to size then sanded through 5 different grits of sandpaper, before sanding to 12000 grit with micro mesh.
It is then rubbed with a beeswax mix before rounding off with a friction polish to provide a water resilient and durable finish.
After the pieces have been completed they are then assembled using premium fittings.

***Caring for your custom shaving kit***

I do strongly recommend drying the handles after use. With proper care, the finish should provide many years of use.

Made in Ireland.

About Vendor

I always had the idea of working with wood when I was growing up, but it wasn’t until a few years ago that I started with some driftwood from my local shore in Moville. This lead to woodturning and has grown into more than a hobby. I love crafting everything from pens and pencils to shaving sets, cufflinks, earrings and many more products. I work with native as well as exotic woods from around the world, but my favourite and the one I work with most is Irish Bog Oak.
