Some folks tell me I don't make enough 'short' brushes...and they are right, if you are dig a face lather shorter brushes are lekka! Check out this lime barrel!
The theme of this brush ties in with our 'African Rainbow' range as the bulk part of resin that would be required is replaced with coarse salt, and not just any type of salt either, one of the purest forms of salt on the planet!
We obtain the salt from www.Oryxsdesertsalt.co.za, who harvests it from the Kalahari region where the salt is a ever-replenishing, renewable source. This source was discovered beneath a 50 km2 salt pan where three underground streams converge and replenish an ancient underground salt lake of 55 million tons from which the salt water is deposited into pans under the hot Kalahari sun and sun-dried.
This salty feature makes this brush even more charged up on the eco-friendly side as we only use about a third of the resin we'd normally use. Although you lose some visual attributes of the resin, you gain exceptional grip as the salt on the exposed surface of the brush is dissolved in water and leaves these pockets that feels will enhance grip dramatically, especially around the curves of the brush and your fingers. This salty used less than half the resin we'd use for a full resin brush.
Some interesting additional features we discovered is a brush that retains heat in the handle a lot better while in use (I fully submerge my brushes in hot water prior to a shave), and then becomes chillingly cold when rested after use. You may detect some more salt residue as you use your brush, nothing to worry and you can simply wipe it away with water, this in on account of some more inner crystals that are dissolving as we can only spend so much time rinsing a brush handle. I think it would be so cool if all the salt could be washed out completely, it would look wicked! Who knows maybe after you have used it enough, so give it horns!
This brush is all resin and salt, nothing else, it is fitted with a 24 mm synthetic silvertip knot.
You'd think the cavities would trap your soap, but they rinse clean in no time at all, that being said...if you are a sif/lazy bloke/blokess who do not clean your hardware and brush ware regularly this brush is not for you, rather get something such as a resin or resin/hybrid brush.
The brush stands 102 mm tall, with the loft at 58 mm. the barrel is 38 mm at the midrif and the base and collar clocks in around 29 mm. As it stands the brush weighs 56 grams and it will get lighter as the salt washes out.
Effortless! You won't burn kilojoules using this oke!
