The handcrafted “brick” look of this beautiful Citadel Series style shaving brush is reminiscent of the towering castle walls of old. Like a battlement, the textured, exotic African Blackwood gives a look and feel that is unique to this class of brushes. Crested with a High Mountain White badger knot this brush is a bastion for wet shaving!
African Blackwood, or Mpingo in Swahili, is an exotic wood that comes from the dry savanna regions of central and southern Africa and is considered to be among the hardest and densest of woods in the world.
Because it comes from the neck and muzzle area of the badger, High Mountain White is the rarest and highest grade of badger hair. It has the softest and most luxurious natural tips and usually the most defined colour contrast with its distinct black band and white creamy tip. The hair is generally finer resulting in a denser knot that can hold more water, while remaining extremely soft. This allows it to easily produce a rich and dense lather, resulting in a superb shave. High Mountain White is the standard against which all other badger hair is measured!
