We just received a new shipment of polished Asylum Rx razor handles. These handles have standard threading and will fit all razor heads with standard threading.

Jose Longoria was one of the better known strop makers (Ambrose Strops) back in 2009 and 2010 when he suddenly stopped making strops. He is getting ready to start making them again and will be making a special line of strops for Asylum Shave Works. I thought I'd share some of his earlier work to give you something to look forward to.
