I made this last night for my father-in-law’s birthday today. The finish is beeswax. It’s a little chunkier than I would have liked, but I think he’ll like it.

Great shave brush! Is that badger hair? Where did you get the hair from? How did you attach the hair to the base?

I got the 20mm Silvertip badger hair knot from the Golden Nib.

I attached this one with thick CA glue. I used epoxy on another that I did. The CA dries super fast, which is what I wanted last night at midnight. ;) It should be watertight…I hope.

Anthony has some beautiful shaving brushes doesn’t he?

You did it justice. I think the thickness would be an asset when your hands are wet. I know I wouldn’t want to drop it and take the chance of the wood cracking.
