A Walnut ferrule separates the 24mm High Mountain White knot from the deep, purple Ash base of this artisan made shaving brush, creating a unique and very classy look.
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!
The Ash used to make this beautiful shaving brush is native to Eastern North America and we harvested this piece in the Hardwood Lands area of Hants County in Nova Scotia. Ash is commonly used in tool handles and baseball bats where durability and toughness is desired. It has a beautiful grain pattern and we dyed it a rich, deep purple which accentuates this grain.
