    Default The Butcher Shop

    [Soooo......it appears that we need to start a few things over again here on SRP. I'll reopen the doors on The Butcher Shop right away. I'm sure once Doc hears things are running again he'll get The Boker Brotherhood up as well. I don't want to step on his toes, so I'll just wait for him.]


    Everyone is welcome to post their pictures/stories/facts about the wonderful Wade & Butcher straights on this thread!!

    My first entry will be my newest completed project: my W&B Gentlemen's Razor No. 1 that I picked up on Eboy a short time ago. The blade was very dirty (and still needs some cleaning) and the scales were completely trashed. I purchased two dozen blocks of different African and South American hardwood with the intention of making custom scales (I have about three dozen blades in need of them). This set was actually my prototype set and wasn't going to be finished. I've decided on four different scale designs for the future and I'll be cutting them with my table saw for a nice even/level product. These were cut, shaped and sanded by hand - which was fun, and the look great, but it's just not what I originally thought of in my head.

    These are made of Padauk with a Walnut wedge for contrast. They are finished with Renaissance Wax Polish and held together with the brass machine screws and nuts that we had all been talking about lately. I am quite pleased with the finished product and have hopes that the next one done will be in the B/S/T forum.

    Thanks for posting Gary! Your pieces are always welcome here! I was looking forward to seeing those yesterday but due to the obvious problems.....lol....I guess I need to wait another day. It might just be time for me to acquire one of your straights.....

    Well, I didn't save any of the pics that I posted here last time, but I just did a head count, and realized that I'm up to ....12 Wade & Butcher's so far (bought another three yesterday for under $25 a pop). I guess it might be time to change my title

    Okay, I guess I'll do the best I can without a digital camera. You'll just have to forgive the shiy quality of the pictures.

    First of all, here are my BOW razors. These are all square tip 6/8, though one or two might end up closer to a 5/8 because of dings in the edge, etc. I really lke these razors; they're not very fancy, but the steel is excellent, and they have a nice heft for their size. As you can see, they come in a number of different handle materials.

    enjoy
