Stone Field Hollywood DE 3rd Edition- "The Shawshank Redemption"
"There's a big hayfield up near Buxton. You know where Buxton is? It's got a long rock wall with a big oak tree at the north end. It's like something out of a Robert Frost poem. It's where I asked my wife to marry me. We went there for a picnic and made love under that oak and I asked and she said yes. Promise me, Red. If you ever get out... find that spot. At the base of that wall, you'll find a rock that has no earthly business in a Maine hayfield. Piece of black, volcanic glass. There's something buried under it I want you to have."
If you like movies, you'll think this is really cool. If you love "The Shawshank Redemption", you MUST have this razor!
Filmed on location in Ohio, the tree figures prominently at the end of the movie when Red (Morgan Freeman) finds a box that was placed by Andy (Tim Robbins). This tree became somewhat of a celebrity in its own way. Fans from all over came to Ohio to take part in the "Shawshank Trail", an opportunity to visit many of the film locations, including the tree. The owners of the property, never allowed fans to actually get up close. You could take pictures from a distance. Now you have a chance to actually hold a piece of the tree!
In 2011, the tree suffered significant damage during a storm and approximately half of it was lost. The tree was further damaged during a storm in July of 2016. The damage was so extensive that the tree had to be removed. The owner solicited several companies that stock unique wood and we saw a great opportunity to make movie magic.
The Stone Field Hollywood DE 1st and 2nd Edition double edge safety razors sold out within a few days of carrying them.
Many people asked me about the razors after we sold out. I always told people that I would try and get more wood. Through many different emails and phone calls, I was able to track down the owner and bring more blanks to Canada. However, this is it. There is very little left. We don't anticipate bringing more in.
The Stone Field Hollywood DE 3rd Edition was turned by Herman De Vries. No two are alike.
The handle is turned from a piece of the fallen oak tree from Ohio. We've given the handle a clear finish so that you can appreciate the natural wood grain. When the turning process is over, we are left with a small unused portion. We've left that piece in its natural state (unfinished) and have included it with the razor. We think it makes a cool addition to the razor- a real conversation piece.
We've added a few extras to the box- but we won't spoil the surprise. A true fan will absolutely love this!
Each razor has its own unique serial number. We based them after Andy's prison number from the movie 37947. Those razors sold- and so the following numbers have been assigned for the 3rd edition.
Once these are gone, they might be gone for good- just like Andy!
Each razor comes with a card signed by the property's owner- It is a card certifying that the wood came from the Shawshank tree.
