    Thanks guys.

    My older son and I both use brushes and I use a straight edge razor on occasions when I shave. Up to now, I have been using cheap brushes and desided to get some silver tip badger for me and my son...
    I got the equipment so, why not. But even when you buy the bdger hair knots and make your own they are still expensive.

    John,

    What DE did you get. I also have an older Gillete DE safety razor that I use on occasions. They work great as long as you let the weight of the razor do the job and don't press it into your skin. I also found that short strokes work better. Good luck.

    I got a Gillette red tip super speed, a 40s super speed, and a slim adjustable. Looking forward to giving it a shot and cutting up my face!

    Made an other pipe with the help of a wood lathe.
    Briar is exceptional, I was very suprized when I started cutting into it and the grain became visible.
    I didn't make this stem. It's a new stem that i bought and it can be fitted with a filter.
    Overall, I think this is my best pipe.

    BTW, sorry for the dog hair on the pillow, I didn't see it until I downloaded the pictures.

    That is gorgeous. I love the classic lines. One of my favorite shapes.

    Thanks John, that shape is tough to work with but it did come out very nice.
    Made this shaving brush for a friend of mine yesterday.
    It's a silvertip badger hair brush with a super nice walnut grain handle.

    That is great Igor! I love the brush handles. You need to look into lathing your own Pipe stems my friend. Great work!

    Now that I have a wood lathe in the shop I am going to try and turn some... I got some acrilic rods and will try it soon.
