Both as beauty and efficiency, my fav is a custom shaving brush.
Made by a friend of mine, an italian pro carpenter (Enzo aka Bat71@ilRasoio).
I call it Cashmere, both for the colors and for the sweetness.

These are the main features:
• ergonomics of the shapes for a comfortable grip
• personalized craftsmanship on the lathe
• local olive wood handle, with a cream-colored glossy finish
• real abalone shell inserts
• 24mm soft synthetic knot, Yaqi SK07 formally Maggard Beige
• medium size and relatively low setting (24x50x115mm)

I have to admit when I got this customed I didn’t think I’d love it so much but this has to be my nicest or most favored piece in the den[Image: cdb7ef126b76342b9a39436f8d29039a.jpg]

For me, it's a tie between these two brushes.
The one on the left has a handle made from California Sequoia redwood burl and the one on the right is made from Hawaiian Curly Koa burl.
California is my home state, so the redwood tree is a way to anchor my memories of home while I am abroad.  The Hawaiian Koa wood has a shimmering, almost holographic, luster and no photo can capture its beauty.  The handle shapes are like Yin/Yang when side by side.
Both handles were lovingly restored and reknoted by Bernd at Shavemac.
