Your limited edition Benton Clay shaving brush is now ready to ship. These days it's hard to find an artisan brush filled with a genuine hand-tied Simpsons knot, but Benton Clay was fortunate enough to procure a small cache from the Isle of Man shortly before Simpsons made the decision to cease supplying their knots to other manufacturers. Your walnut/badger brush is filled with a grade of badger comparable to the Grey and/or Pure Badger found in many Simpons brushes but at a lower price point. The wonderful thing about these hand-tied knots is that, unlike a knot produced by automation, they leave the hair tips untrimmed, meaning a smoother, more luxurious feel than what you'd experience in many brushes filled with this grade of badger. At 23mm, these brushes are on the large side, making for an all-encompassing, pampering shave experience (you can see one in full bloom in image #2).
We have set these knots into walnut handles, lathe-turned in a Mennonite spindle factory and hand-rubbed with multiple coats of Tung oil for a low-lustre gunstock sheen. The handle is modelled off of a classic Canadian-made Fuller brush from the last centrury. These brushes have some heft to them and offer excellent water resistance although full immersion should be avoided. Each handle is unique with its own rustic appearance and subtle imperfections. 30 available. Priced to sell at $25 + $8.99 shipping Can./US. For a limited time I'll include a cotton/bamboo shave towel with each order.
