    Default Drew Dick/UK Maker

    https://twitter.com/doubledrazors

    So I was looking for google images of red mallee burl because I just ordered some from the site Roy recommended: http://http://www.woodturningz.com/R...Burl_1.5x1.5x6. Patrick there was very helpful in agreeing to cut some wood blanks into more razor-friendly dimensions for a small fee. I went kind of wild and got that, some African blackwood, Gaboon ebony, desert ironwood, and even some inlace acrylester, so I am all set for summer projects. I got some more pin-stock and various collars from Austin, too, so now it's all about just carving out shop time.

    Anyway, I ran across Drew Dick's web-page and thought he has some interesting designs and uses some beautiful wood, all apparently lined with G10. I don't think I had heard of him before. Any of you UK guys know about him-Mark or Jaymie? Just curious. Aaron

    Never heard of him before, this is the only straight razor forum I go to so maybe his more well known in the UK forums.

    He seems to be popular on the FB shaving groups.

    He is on here, and TSD

    He didn't like being asked about his Final Bevel angle and why he was using 5-10 layers of tape to hone his razors
    As soon as he was asked he disappeared off both forums and is only on FB now..

    I do NOT know if his new razors are corrected to proper bevel angles, I did a re-scale about a year ago and it needed 5 layers of tape to keep a small even bevel, I do NOT know when that razor was made...


    That is all i know


    Took me a bit to find the pics

    I don't know Drew personally, I see his razors on Instagram, I have never honed one of his razors, so I really have no idea what they are like.

    5 to 10 layers of tape for a new razor? Doesn't sound like something I would be interested in.

    I don't know how I never saw the post Glen linked to but this is the first I have seen it. Man, dude with an attitude. I wonder if any buyers knew they would need that many layers of tape to hone their razors before they bought them?

    I don't know Dick but he made me the razor below - shaves wonderfully - think Glen honed it for me and Dick was easy for me to deal with.

    Can you hone it with one or less layers of tape on the spine?
