BLACK BEAUTY

A limited edition of just six shaving brushes in jet black resin with Manchurian Badger hairs.

Each brush is individually hand crafted and serial numbered, and comes with a certificate signed by Rodney Neep. These six brushes have the serial numbers 1867 to 1872. (Serial numbers are allocated to my creations in consecutive order that I make them, starting several years ago with number 1).

Actually, there are seven brushes made like this. I kept the first one. #1866, for myself to use!

Manchurian Badger hair is especially favoured by those who prefer face lathering due to the hair stiffness. Actually the hairs are 1.5 times the thickness of silvertip badger hairs, and therefore they give a better "backbone" to the brush. Of course, the brush can also be used very effectively for bowl lathering too.

  • Handle height: 55mm
  • Knot: 26mm Manchurian Badger set at 52mm loft
  • Black brush stand included

#1862 - Pollyanna Burl (Wild Almond) Shaving Brush

This wood is shrouded in mystery. Some call it Pollyanna Burl, while others refer to it as Wild Almond (which is not actually an almond at all). One thing for sure, is that it is extremely rare on the market. My local wood supplier had just one piece that he obtained knowing that it would appeal to me. I wanted it as soon as I saw it, because I just knew that it would be stunning when turned on the lathe into a brush handle. I wasn't disappointed. Not the easiest wood to turn, as it proved to be very, very hard, and incredibly heavy and dense.

As it was a large piece of wood, I turned it into a large "Chubby" shape, and fitted it with a large 30mm diameter knot. A phenominally beautiful heavy brush. I can safely say that this brush is totally unique. There won't be another shaving brush like this in the world.

  • Handle Height: 55mm
  • Handle Diameter: 45mm
  • Knot: 30mm Extra Dense silvertip badger set at 52mm loft
  • Finish: Tru-Oil

#1858 #1859 #1860 - MALAYSIAN BLACKWOOD "CHUBBY"

A very special limited edition batch of only three brushes in absolutely stunning AAA grade Malaysian Blackwood. Each has a sumptuous 30mm Extra Dense Silvertip Badger knot. The ultimate badger knot which will handle both face lathering and bowl lathering with ease.

Each of these three are virtually identical, and were made from one single piece of wood. (One, #1858 has a slightly higher knot loft at 55mm, whereas the other two have a loft of 53mm).

Malaysian Blackwood (Diospyros ebonasea) is a member of the ebony family and is a remarkably beautiful hardwood with unique patterns and coloration that are in a class by itself. Like ebony, it is heavy, dense and very hard. It is found only in Malaysia, and is very rare, and expensive.

  • Handle diameter: 40mm
  • Handle height: 47mm
  • Knot: 30mm Extra Dense Silvertip Badger set at 53mm loft (#1858 with 55mm loft is now sold)
