The handle of this beautiful shaving brush is made of African Blackwood. 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.
The appearance of this knot reminds one of the natural look of a horse hair knot and therefore is often referred to as “faux horse”. We know that there’s nothing fake about the quality, the feel or it’s lather making ability so we prefer to call it Equine-Synth! The knot has hair that feels slightly thicker than that of the Tuxedo. Its extra density as well as its thicker hair provides it with a good amount of backbone for face latherers. A beautiful knot in both looks and use!
