Anyone ever work with someone who makes custom brush handles? I'm going through all the things to get ready for my wedding in December and I'm thinking I want to do a shave kit as the Groomsmen gifts. They will be my brother, who I have already converted to wet shaving, and a long time friend, who I've been working on converting for a while. I'd like to do 3 custom brush handles using the wedding colors, one for me and one for each of them. I'm not too concerned about hair right now, since I've done several re-knots and I'm confident I can put the knot in myself. They have to look just as nice as they work, just in case the guys choose not to use them. Any suggestions?

Sounds like a great idea.

I would PM 'Beejay' on here. He creates some amazing handles and is very skilled. I have 2 myself and finalised another last night.

Hi Andy

I can highly recommend Rod_Neep, take a look here...

I don't have the handles in my hands yet (my mum will be bring them over next month when she visits), so can't comment first-hand at this time on the workmanship, material, etc, but Rod was an absolute pleasure to do business with and has made the exact two handles I wanted...

Take care, Mike

Definitely either Rod or Beejay - both top notch brush makers.

Thanks a bunch guys! Looks like I have two great handle makers in my radar. Now I just have to decide what I want them to look like. I have some ideas, but I'd like to get the input of the handle turners as well. I'll be sure to post the results when I figure it all out.

I am sure Beejay does nice work. I have one of Rodneys custom brushes and its a fabulous handle and knot!

Rudy Vey is great as well. Not sure where you are, but Rudy is in New Jersey, which might make things simpler.
