    Meh, why not.
    They are in order.

    #6 First was to get a taste of Brian's skills:


    #10 Next was for my wife. It was a save from a larger blade that had been ruined; he shortened it, rounded the point and converted it to a 4/8:


    #12 Last is my pride. It was based off an older stubby of mine with a broader/ more curled tail, 8/8-7/8 taper, smile and a few other options making it one of my best shavers yet:



    I hope not to stop here.

    This is my first Brian Brown custom. When my wife asked me what I wanted for my upcoming 50th birthday I told her, without hesitation, a Brian Brown custom. It arrived today in the mail and I used it to remove 6.5 days worth of beard that I saved up in anticipation. The craftsmanship on this razor is amazing and I had an incredible early birthday shave. I used Brian's pics of the razor so you can see the details and included the one that I took of today's setup.

    It is 7/8, rounded point, Damascus with blonde horn scales.

    Currently have two BB's, but sadly, I didn't commission either.

    The first one, which Brian refers to as No.81 is one a saw surfing the web ages ago. It reappeared in a BST listing, I waffled and missed it. Then it resurfaced in another BST and I didn't blink. Since I absolutely LOVE shorty blades, and white scales this razor has become my top dog..

    8/8, Spanish point, shorty edge, drop tail and rounded tang, white G10




    The second when was first spied on one of Brian's Instagram posts as part of a matched set. I haven't completely tracked it's origin, but I believe I am the third owner.

    8/8, Spanish point, acid etched in Ivory with red G10 liners and wedge. Regrettably, one of the previous owners honed it without tape and the spine shows the slightest glint of the etching being worn off...

    Talking Brian Brown Kamisori in White Steel Suminagashi

    A beautiful fixed blade has joined the ranks.

    The blade is a 6/8 western grind. It came with a nice Koa wood stand.

    The stone is my Nakayama Maruichi Kamisori-Size from JNS.

    Better quality pictures (by Mr. Brown) can be seen here.
