Magnificent custom ebonite brushes by Shavemac!

Recently, Chris (nervosa1901), Lance (Skinny Rogers), Tappan (Nevada Red), and I agreed to explore the idea of a commissioning some truly custom brushes.

Chris takes credit for doing the groundwork for this endeavor.

The results are spectacular.

Ebonite rods were custom ordered, and then turned/finished by Bernd.  The knots are the truly superb D01.  Dense and soft with a touch of scrub.

These 3 brushes are 32mm x 58mm, DO1 2-band, bulb.

WOW! Do these brushes weight more than the regular turned handles?

To my hand just a tad more heft.  They feel solid but very well balanced, handle to knot size.  Not overbearing in the least, just a very good solid feel.

The heft on these reminded me exactly of how I felt the first time I picked up a titanium razor.... absolutely perfect.

These brushes are awesome to say the least.

Thank you to Chris for doing the legwork to make these happen.

Some quick snapshots in my poorly lit bathroom.

All three are 32/56mm DO2 2 band fan.

Shavemac & Bernd always delivers.

Great handles, great knots - but D01 2-band is a stiff one, only for the faint hearted, and some of them takes 20-30 shaves to break in, some will never break in, some are quite soft from the get go.

I'd love to get one. Smaller knot though.

The blue and black is especially nice.
