Re: Restored and shop-made shaving brushes

I have created a small travel brush from natural horn and two band finest badger hair. This brush is inspired by Simpson Wee Scot. It is slightly larger than Wee Scot and sports a larger two band finest knot, but the idea of a thumb sized brush that really works amazingly well is inspired by Simpson's iconic brush.

Brush Dimensions (approximate):

Total height: 73mm
Handle: 35mm
Loft: 38mm
Knot: 18mm Bulb shape

I have created another travel brush. The handle is natural horn, the knot is TGN two band finest. I really enjoy small brushes and Simpson Wee Scot was definitely the inspiration for this one. This brush is slightly larger than the Wee Scot and is just an amazing performer according to the test lathers.

Brush Dimensions (approximate):


Total height: 75mm
Handle: 34mm
Loft: 41mm
Knot: 18mm Bulb shape

This next one is very interesting and is made from new to me material. This is shredded US currency stabilized in clear resin. If you look closely you can definitely make up various parts of the bills in there. Give the brush the color of money :) I decided to make this a big brush. Large two band finest badger knot and Chubby 3 type handle.

Brush Dimensions (approximate):

Total height: 104mm
Handle: 52mm
Loft: 52mm
Knot: 31mm

I have created two brushes for custom orders. One in resin and one in exotic wood.

First one is a boar brush in resin. Cutstomer sent me his beloved Omega 48, which was well broken in and he loved it. I made a new handle for it from three different resins. Bottom is "Molten Metal", top is "Golden Marble" and the center ring is "Copper Pearl".

Dimensions:

Total height: 148mm
Handle: 81mm
Loft: 67mm
Knot: 28mm

The second one is in Burmese Blackwood and TGN two band finest badger knot.

Dimensions:

Total height: 111mm
Handle: 59mm
Loft: 52mm
Knot: 31mm
