    Default My new mugs

    I had a potter friend design a few old time looking shave mugs for me. These may be a regular item on my site but for now they will look nice in the bathroom with my vintage razors.

    Tony,

    Very nice...kind of an "old look" to them. Do you know the interior dimensions? Or, does a puck of Williams fit snugly?

    Randy,
    he is sending the samples this week so I can check dimensions. He can adjust sizing to suit. These were just to approve the lettering.

    They are similar in size to an Old Spice mug at this point but I may adjust that once I try them.

    Your inventory and selection is becoming quite large Tony, are you planning on keeping this up? Honestly, you have some of the best stuff I've seen around with the exception of Classic Shaving

    Tony, those mugs are way cool. Maybe when we order them we could get are initials or name on the back side?

    Dawill,
    Thanks! Umm, I have to keep this up, with a daughter headed to a private college in the Fall I have no choice <g>

    My main focus will always be strops, hanging and paddle as they are what I enjoy making. The Belgians will be here too. The brushes are an experiment, the mugs too as I just wanted something nicer than the Marvey mugs in my kits.
    I won't be doing the razor or accessory thing as Classic Shaving has all that anyone could ever want and I too am a frequent customer there. I just felt there was a need for fairly priced strops and in variations not commonly found. This is and will always be just a sideline.

    Glen,
    The way the mugs are done that probably won't be possible. The current lettering is under the glaze. If initials are added over the glaze they are not too permanent. It would be a fun idea though, I can check on it.

    Tony,

    The initials might be most cost effective if you took orders over time, buyers knowing that would pay in advance, but delivery time might be up to 90 days. This way you could possible accumulate enouh orders to make the mugs with initials more cost effective.
