BSB SHAVING BRUSHES - New Project BSB-2 with VIE-LONG FAN BADGER KNOTS

Friends, I want to introduce some info about the new project of the brush BSB-2

BSB-2 is already prototyped, in regards to the handle, shape, dimensions, weight, and in aluminum. I started my job with the prototypes in January, even before the second batch of the BSB-1 was produced. Two cycles of prototyping have been necessary. Nothing here about CAD. Pencil and compasses, curves templates, old school, as I like to do. Computers are good, but I like the pencil. There's nothing like a sharp pencil resting on the right ear, when not in hand.

Will not be a barber brush. Will be more conventional. Small and stocky. We'll see what I can do about knots. Whatever they are, and whatever origin they be, should be at my taste. If I do not like them, we should wait until I have some that I like. You know that in this there is no hurry to get to the goal. The important thing is to enjoy the journey.

So far, I have started the logistics operation of packaging supply, which will be different, but on the same line to BSB-1, to provide functionality. Slowly but surely I am planning. Will be possible that you can add an extra container if you wish, because it can serve for other brushes on trip.

And there are a couple of ideas for BSB-3 and BSB-4, if we get to that point.

I will keep you informed, my friends.

PS: This is not the prototype, it's just a joke, a humorous exercise of creativity.

Thank you friend.

We have taken a third cycle of prototyping to the BSB-2. The second prototype passed my test, but after a few days having them on hands, I decided I had to do a third cycle of prototyping for a subtle touch on the base. The base is concave, and it was so in the second proto, but I thought I had to modify the radius of curvature subtly. Making slightly concave base is an additional machining operation which increases a bit the cost, but for me it is important. They are the two tenths more expensive of the handle.


And I have a new travel brush. A brush for my collection of impossible brushes.

Wow a true bulb shaped brush. I can't wait to see what you come up with for a "fan" shape.  Biggrin

Great work! Very cool.

Oh I like it.. does BSB-2 prototype's socket designed to warm the knot up if we screw when we put it into the lighting socket?

so when are you moving this to beta-testing?  Laughing1

The BSB-2 is not that brush. Sorry for confusion. That brush could be named BSB-E27. I am having great demand of it, friend.

Hello friends. Perhaps you would like to know some information about the BSB-2 project. I took two full weekends working on the handles. I am exhausted. The handle is bright and beautiful. There will be fewer units than the BSB-1.

very clever,  and the screw base adds grip.

Friends. I know you want to see some pics. I can show to you the bottom of the handle. The pic is a bad pic. Poor quality. Taken last weekend, with my iPad, when I was cleaning and protecting the handles to work in the knots with safety, to avoid scratches.

Also I can say the travel case will be the one on the middle in this pic.

Now I am testing some knots to choose the final knot. More news about this, when things be clear. But I said this before. We should wait until I find the knot I like. No hurries. Probably the summer will pass before they will be ready to ship. No need advanced payment. Complete brush will be shown when ready. But I said before it is not a barber brush. It is a more conventional brush. His key name is BSB-2 but it also has a colloquial name: Sancho Panza. This name has suggested to me the colloquial name of the BSB-1, Don Quijote, that is a good name, having in account the difficulties and the troubles that I found in that project. But I am a romantic fighter, as Don Quijote was.

Next days will talk more about the BSB-2, friends.

Maybe you will like to see the BSB-1 and the BSB-2, here, a great team.
