So, you want a new shaving brush but cannot decide which one? You like a certain handle style, but it is not offered in the hair quality, size, or loft you like.
For any custom work contact me and we can discuss your needs. My goal is to fulfill the needs and wishes of my customers. I have made brushes from woods, resins, acrylics, antler, horn and even pre-ban ivory. Some of my work included removing boar knots from simple, light plastic handles and set them into new handles turned from custom cast butterscotch resin or faux ivory.
Restoration work is also a specialty of mine. I have revived 30+ year old brushes with high sentimental value, into like-new ones that will see another 30 years of usage.
Here is how I work: After my customer has decided on shape and material of handle and size, quality and loft of the hair knot, I make the handle and set the knot loosely in. Then I take a picture and send it to the customer for approval. If it is approved, my customer pays me and I glue the knot in and pack and ship the brush to him - the customer knows exactly what he is getting!
So, if you are in need for a new brush, want an antique store find restored or need an old brush re-knotted, please contact me: send me a pm or e-mail me to: [email protected]
Here are a few examples of my work:
The first is a badger brush in the shape of the Beehive with a Silvertip grade A knot.
The second brush is made with a custom cast resin handle, the color was the choice of my customer, showing a two-band finest Badger hair knot.
The next picture shows two brushes, the left is made from resin stabilized Boxelderburl wood and the small one, a travel brush, in black Buffalo horn; both are shown with two-band finest knots. The left one a bulb shape, and the travel brush a fan shaped knot.
Then there are two re-handled Omega 10066 knots, handle shapes are similar to the Duke and Emillion.
