Hand made brushes

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!

Not many people can claim that they hand tie their own knots! Bravo! :notworthy:


I showed this to a friend, he said “Have you tried to tie a fan? I suppose the middle one should be it....”

I said “Stefan, they are all supposed to be fan!” [emoji23]

Thanks for the compliment, I do like all of them for their individual properties, but I am far from claiming I can tie knots properly hehe [emoji6]
