– Chrome plated Fusion shaving razor.
– Hand selected African Blackwood handle. African Blackwood (Dalbergia melanoxylon) grows on the dry savanna regions of central and southern Africa from Senegal east to Eritrea and south to the Transvaal in South Africa and is considered to be among the hardest and densest of woods in the world. African Blackwood grows 20-30 feet tall and has a trunk 2-3 feet in diameter. It is often completely black, with little or no discernible grain. Occasionally, it is slightly lighter, with a dark brown or purplish hue. The pale yellow sapwood is usually very thin, and is clearly demarcated from the darker heartwood. African Blackwood has a fine, even texture, with small pores that should not require filling; the grain is typically straight; heartwood is rated as very durable in regards to decay resistance. It is considered to be among the very finest of all turning woods and is expensive, on par with true ebonies such as Gaboon Ebony in the Diospyros genus.
– Accented with four grooved rings, fiction burned with wire.
– A 7 mm brass tube runs through the handle’s center. Chrome end pieces are screwed together with threaded rod and also glued, making the handle sturdy and water resistant.
