This beautiful, traditional-style, three piece shaving set features:
- A handcrafted White Ash wood handled shaving brush with a 24mm Super badger knot with a 50mm loft. The overall height is 116mm / 4.56″ (4 9/16″) and the weight is 65g / 2.3 oz.
- A handcrafted White Ash wood handled safety razor handle with a closed comb head that has a chrome finish and is 108mm / 4.25″ (4 1/4″) long and weighs 65g / 2.3 oz.
- A beautifully handcrafted White Ash wood stand that is 149mm / 5.88″ (5 7/8″) tall with an approximate 9cm / 3.5″ (3 1/2″) diameter base.
Similar in looks to the Silvertip the hair for the Super Badger knot is normally plucked from the back of the badger. These are then graded and sorted to such a degree that its performance is superior to that of Best Badger. They feature soft bristles and natural tips with a strong backbone and a good ability to absorb water. Many people feel that after a break in period they are close in performance to Silvertip!
The White Ash used to make this beautiful shaving brush is native to Eastern North America and we harvested the wood for this piece in the Hardwood Lands area of Hants County in Nova Scotia. White Ash is a light to medium brown colour, has beautiful grain contrast and is commonly used in tool handles and baseball bats where durability and toughness is desired. This makes it a great choice for a shaving brush!
This is a modern take on a true classic and definitely one that will please!
