This brush features one of the most popular firewoods in South Africa; Sekelbos, but not the wet, young stuff you buy when heading out of Warmbaths towards Sondela, ours is from a farm where years of hardship have turned the wood tough and rock hard. Sekelbos has a rich red colour with a fine grain and nice patterning. The wood cracks easily and is not ideal for 'full' brushes, but luckily resin fills all the voids, cracks and crannies so that we can turn this exceptional hard wood into brushes that will last for many years to come.
This brush features lightly tinted red resin that gives the brush the appearance of a solid, dark coloured brush, but when it hits the light you can stare into the abyss that features like a wall inside the brush, it is humble, yet unique.
We have applied a coat of a new aftershave balm we are developing made from tallow, olive oil and a few other ingredients, and we love the natural sheen of this product, so as a bonus you will receive a small tub of this to keep for your brush, and to try on your face, now if that is not the type functionality you'd love from a shaving product we'll have a hard time to please you!
