The boy is always using my soaps/ brush and bowl for shaving. So I decided to make his own for him. The brush knott is 22mm silver tipped badger hair (extra fine). I had a freind cast the blank, I sent hime 2 OSU Buckeye ball markers to put at the end of the handle. (Calebs a big Buckeye fan) The ‘Red’ didn’t come out the way I would have liked. But it still works. I turned the handle using a bottle stopper mandrel so it was fairly easy. the bowl is stainless steel and I bought him ‘Creme Brulei’ for his soap cake. Birthday is this tuesday.
