What a boneheaded idea! I took a perfectly fine translucent green porcelain handle and filled it with a soft, synthetic knot from TGN. Who wants a floppy, artificial, nylon knot in a luxury pottery handle? Why go to the trouble of crafting a beautiful one-of-a-kind handle if you are going to fill it with a downscale artificial knot? It's like setting rhinestone in platinum. Or spam in fresh bakery bread. What was I thinking? The thing is meant for shaving, not for basting your Christmas turkey. It seems no one wants to touch this odious, pathetic excuse for a shaving brush with a 39 and a half foot pole. And who can blame them? Consequently I cannot seem to sell this eyesore (and please forgive me for posting the pic) for even $10 - less than the cost of its materials. Nor dare I save it for when my son comes of age lest I become a fool in his eyes when he finally learns what wet shaving is really about.
But B&B if nothing else is about being a man. And part of being a man means admitting your mistakes. So..... I'm going to try and give this brush away, heck, I may even bribe you to take it. So, what about you? What is the most bone-headed idea you've ever seen in the wet shaving world? The unfortunate winner will receive this woeful excuse for shaving pottery, this ersatz shaving tool, this faux grooming accessory. Once you try the brush you'll likely be driven to smash the handle in despair so I offer this consolation prize: a full puck of Benton Clay's delightful and universally acclaimed Vetiver Paradisi shaving soap. It's the least I can do for being such a bonehead.
So, to summarize:
Post your boneheaded idea right here in this thread and if you are extremely unfortunate you'll win the pictured brush along with some soap. My apologies in advance to the "winner".
