This brush was made to look like something you would find in the cave of 'early wetshavers' long before King C Gillette and his chronies took over the bulk of the global shaving market. The brush handle is made from Kudu horn that was turned on the lathe but also hand shaped to give it a 'primitive appearance'. More specifically so, it is the inner horn bone that is used, this stuff is HARD, it is harder than any wood I have worked with, and very heavy at that, the inner section of the horn has a less dense structure with cavities and tunnels that allows for the traversing of blood, oxygen, minerals and other organic matter for the continuous development of the horn over the Kudu's lifespan, we fill these voids with resin, making the brush slightly lighter than solid, high density horn, but is still heavier than most natural materials out there. This brush has a reddish resin shade, making it look like something cut freshly from the carcass. quite a hardcore handle and not for the squeamish if you ask me,,,

The brush weighs 109 grams, and stands 110 mm tall. with a loft set at 64 mm. The body has diameters ranging from 35 mm around the waist to 44 mm around the collar and foot. The brush is fitted with  30 mm Finest two band knot, so ideal for guys wanting to make huge lathers in a bowl, or chaps who shave large surfaces such as their head and limbs.

This brush likes to stand up straight, and will only fit in a few stand options, make sure of your dimensions!
