Merry Christmas everyone and Happy Holidays!

So, what the hell have I been up to lately? In summary, DE razor, luxury brush stand, upgrading the compact brush stand, new badger brushes, new boar hair.

Going in reverse order: New boar hair. Some people didn’t like the splay of the previous boar hair, so I went to the hair dressers to see how we could stiffen the hair up a little bit. Result: success! This hair is much more like Semogue’s 90% premium tops and retains the softness of the previous hair and will come mostly broken in out of the box. Plans: bring in the hair for a new acrylic or resin 24 or 26mm premium handled boar brush in the $20-$25 price range.

Look for it in 2014

New Badger Brushes in the Works

Slated for an early 2014 arrival, the Earl and Duchess will be added to the lineup. The Earl will be an acrylic handle in faux horn and black with a metal base. The shape will be a popular classic shape. The projected size of the knot and loft is 25mm x 50mm

The Duchess will be joining the Prince line of brushes to offer a different handle shape for customers. Expect the Prince in a 50mm loft with different handles. Black and ivory white are planned.

Brush Stand Updates

For those following the design progress of the luxury brush & razor stand, it will arrive soon. The design is finalized and they’re being produced as you read this. Expect them very soon.

The compact brush stand has been slightly tweaked. The opening is a little larger and the logo is now stamped into the metal instead of laser etched.

DE Razor Prototype

Did someone say WSP DE razor? Well, I’ve been secretly trying to find a high quality source for a three piece razor. After many, many failures and rejected prototypes, I’ve finally found it! And success has never looked so good!

The handle is my own design and the head is something that should be familiar to everyone.

Wow you have been busy Lee. All excellent additions that expand your brand. Love those stands.

Any chance you will sell your handles separately in case that head is too aggressive for some of us mild shavers?

Happy Holidays Lee.


Oops..Just saw Mike and I are on the same page...

Happy holidays Lee. You are usually up to something when we don't hear from you on the Forum. Looks like you have indeed been busy.
FYI, I got your last Mountain Manchurian knot & am very pleased with it. I would like to have another one if they ever become available again.

I have the flexibility to sell the head and handle separately to just forum members. So, if there's any interest in the head separately I can go ahead and offer them separately. Otherwise, I'll see if there are any overruns.

Oh yeah, they're slated to be back in stock in early January right now.

While I cannot say which brands use this head, perhaps your question has been answered.

Looks nice! The Earl sounds like it might be right up my alley. Have you decided which hair grades you'll be offering?

Yes. HMW, Premium Silvertip, & SuperFine.

They'll be sized in between the Monarchs (Monarch size 2 is in the works for 2014 summer) and are basically a lateral addition.

The Duchess will be a lateral addition to the Prince line. Silvertip & Finest.

Except they'll be black and ivory. Although, maybe I can do butterscotch instead of ivory. Might not be too late to change colors.

Wonderful new additions. The razor is especially exciting. I have to ask, is that a 3" handle like a standard bulldog?
