The White 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. 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. With the 22mm Equine-Synth knot it’s a great choice for a shaving brush!
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!
