Prototyping when I should be working. But I guess this is work - just not the things on my to do list. After months of searching for a company that ethically harvests natural fibres for brush making, and pays their workers a fair wage, the wait is over and I’m so happy. Pictured here is Tampico, and Coconut bristle, with walnut, brass and sycamore fixings.
Il be making loads more of these, for sure, but let me know below what you think!
Il have a few of these decorative brushes for sale @carve.london
and I’m hoping to get some in my shop update in December! 🌿
Another project I mailed out yesterday was my entry for the Cahaba Brush-Off, a shaving brush contest. I was honored that @manonfirecreations
chose my brush as his prize, as Mr. Sallows is a seasoned brushmaker himself. Definitely check out his creations, they’re carved by hand and awesome. Other participants included the winner @rich_man_shaving
, and more. Check them out!
It was my first attempt at a shaving brush, and I enjoyed the whole process- creating a blank, carving and finishing, then setting it with a 24mm @maggardrazors
70/30 badger/boar knot. Big thanks to Ernie Borraga of Shaving Yeti and to Maggards for sponsoring the contest. I can’t promise I’ll make many brushes in the future, but I had a lot of fun!
