Those who follow me on Instagram know I fiddle with all things wet shaving. I generally restore straight razors as my main point of interest, but I need a break from it every once in a while. So thought these would be a good idea, for a change. So having tried and owned some high end, very expensive brushes, as well as some more common ones, I realized I can’t settle for just any generic knot. Unfortunately, that’s easier said than done (or at least it was about a year or two ago), but I eventually managed to get my hands on some loose badger hair. So now, I can play with density, glue, lofts and what have you... I’ll post some more as I get them done. Badgers are more interesting, but I did make a few synthetics as well. I do quite enjoy working with the clay (black and porcelain), as the outcome is often unpredictable, resulting in beautiful, unique pieces. I don’t turn them myself, I don’t have the skills for that, but I provide designs and guidance... and a very strict QC hah!
