This is a hand crafted wood handled shaving brush. The bristles are the finest silver tip badger hair available and the handle is hand made from beautiful Cocobolo wood. These brushes are absolutely wonderful to shave with and make exceptional gifts!

The silver tip badger hair is simply the best grade of badger hair available for shaving. I import the brush heads and make the custom wood handles individually in my shop. Each brush is made and assembled by hand. The shape of the handle is designed to fit comfortably in a large or small hand and can be gripped by the top knob or the center cove. This ensures that the brush will be easy to use and comfortable in any position. This hand crafted shaving brush is sure to impress even the most discerning man!

This large brush features a 25mm brush knot which has bristles that reach 2.75 inches from the rim of the handle. The bristles are 2.5 inches wide at the bulb. The entire brush is over 5.5 inches tall and weighs approximately 2.5 oz (dry).

Once the brush is used, it should be hung with the bristles pointing downward to dry properly. It will then dry with the bristles puffed out (called a blossom) and be much greater in width. These brushes will fit most shaving brush stands that are 4 inches high or taller. Each brush comes with a document that describes the wood and includes directions for "wet shaving" (using a brush to lather up).

A Word About Wood:
While wood is a beautiful medium to work in, it is far from perfect. Items crafted from wood will never be free of imperfections. However, this is desirable for the most part and usually the defects in the wood are appreciated rather than disregarded. This is evident in the value we put on wood that is knotty, burly, has worm or insect holes, naturally discolored, spalted, etc. Some of the most beautifully figured woods are valued because of defects and imperfections.

I provide detailed close up pictures of my work so that you can examine them and verify the quality of work and materials. Also, every item comes with a 7 day satisfaction guaranty (click on “terms” below for more details).

Special Note: I've gotten some inquiries as to the origin of the wood and hair for these brushes. All the exotic wood used is purchased from reputable sources and does not come from endangered habitats. For example, the Cocobolo wood is from the west coast of Central America. Cocobolo is farmed in Costa Rica on privately owned "fincas" (farms) so it is not harvested from the rainforests there.

The badger hair is imported from China where small village co-ops farm the animals and harvest the hair just before summer so that it can grow back before winter time (the badgers are not harmed). This information came to me directly from a representative of the company in China that supplies the hair. So I am quite satisfied that no endangered or protected species are harmed by the use of Chinese badger hair in shaving brushes.
