I understand that in practically every US state except those East of the Mississippi and South of the Ohio, there are real live badgers.
But now that i'm hunting knots for restoration/making a few brushes, I have yet to find any place to buy knots of American Badger hair. I'll gladly pay more.
TIA for any help finding a supply of such. I'm the sort of DIY'er who'll start with a pelt* if necessary. Those I can find.
I'm just relearning to shave after 30 years of doing it. acquired 6 razors and 8 different blades in a week for less than 50 bucks. loving the results, but need to work on my brush collection, been using a brush for 20 years.
again, thanks-i'm not trying to stir up anything nor be disrespectful of those who make a living importing china brushes and china badgers. i simply prefer a more direct connection.
*I have coyote and whitetail pelts in the freezer, no problem collecting anything my area has a hunting/trapping season on. Groundhog? Fox? Otter? Turkey beard?
