Silvertip in Chamfutta
This wood was sourced in Mozambique, and is a popular timber used to construct their eco friendly dwellings, it turns very nicely on the lathe with a beautiful light coloured parallel pattern, in this case the wood was cut across the grain to allow for the swooping, wavy pattern. This baby is fitted with a 21 mm silvertip badger knot which will provide many years worth of fine lathers. It weighs in on 67 grams, and is 115 mm tall with a loft height set at 55 mm. The brush was finished to 600 grit sandpaper and given a deeply penetrating coating of Danish oil, re-apply if desired..
