As some of you know I have been dealing with some recent physical troubles but I got some time recently to complete some new handles to offer you Gentlemen.

You may already be aware that I have started making Brush Handles and restoring vintage handles as a hobby and, after some suggestion, decided to start selling them as a way to continue feeding my creative bug. I have my own preferences when it comes to a knot as many of you do and I don't want to limit your choices by sticking any knot in any handle without a specific request to do so. Another advantage of doing this is that it reduces the cost to you, I sell handles, each hand made on a lathe in my home workshop, I am a craftsman and would like you to enjoy my creations. About me: I started creating handles because I needed to find something new to keep my mind and body occupied. A couple of years ago I suffered an injury that limited my physical ability quite a bit, I was a very active cyclist and a talented bike mechanic and things changed with my injury. I have always tried to stay positive but I got struck by inactivity and needed an outlet so I started fixing razors I could find, then restoring vintage handles, then finally moved onto Handle making. This bug has bit me quite hard and I enjoy creating new handles but I am not much of a collector. Badrunner13 is not a negative name for me, it is a way for me to be honest about my situation and luck and not to be afraid of obstacles that are put before me. This is just one hurdle there are many more. About the handles: Each Handle is made from a cast poly-resin blank that has been crafted by various craftsmen across the country. I take these blanks and shape and polish them on my lathe. The plastic itself is pretty durable but can be a bit tricky to shape at times, if the blank has a void in it I usually adjust the design to suit, sometimes the blank doesn't want to do anything at all and decides to blow up. For the most part though these handles come out very nice and I am proud of them. I have sold a few in the past but I have started to amass quite a collection so I am offering these up for your consideration.

Prices are for the Handles alone, shipping is $5.00 CONUS, Will ship INTL for cost.
