We hope aim for all wetshavers to have a handmade brush, and given the tough economic times we fully appreciate that not all of us can afford the premium products out there, that is why we try and produce brushes from zero to hero to have as many persons possible own something unique. This one is made of Mpingo, or African Blackwood, a very scarce species of wood found from Limpopo to Malawi. The wood is renowned as a superb material for blow instruments such as clarinets, and other items requiring a super smooth finish. We fitted it with a Super Badger knot, and oh boy is it nice to stroke! The brush weighs 76 grams, stands 118 mm high, and is fitted with a 21 mm Super badger knot set at a 56 mm loft. The waist measures 21 mm and the collar 24 mm The brush handle was coated with Rubio Monocoat 2c, of which small quantities will be available on our website soon for brush maintenance purposes.
