    Thumbs up Wood handled shave brushes

    First off I wouldlove to see your wooden handled brushes. If there is wood in it I want to seeit here, be it store-bought/in-the-works/re-knotted/restored/custom. In advancethank you.

    As promised way last year here is what I have been working on. First is theevil brush that started all this. Didn't like the knot, too floppy & coarseso I bought another one and changed it. Been at it ever since. Some of theselooked like drift wood off the beach and I thought I was nuts. Still working onrestoring the lettering. Need some more brushes to practice on. Heh! he! he!

    You have done very nice work! I agree that wood handles seem to be a vintage pleasure brought up to date. Thank you!

    Fantastic collection sir. Love the various shapes of handle. And the HMW knots, gorgeous.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Gave me some ideas for future shapes.
    Cheers.

    Here is one I found a couple of months ago. Haven't done anything to it although I might just send it out to have it redone and re-knotted.

    I really like wood-handled brushes. Painted, vintage, custom, whatever.
