Hi Guys,


I just received this beautiful brush on the email (was custom ordered) and wanted to share, as the presentation is stunning! This brush from a fairly new brushmaker couple, OKU Brushes. 


Package presentation is superb, with its certificate of authenticity, leather (or leather-like) pouch, and a new kind of resin that is a bit translucent. Can't wait to start the break-in process within the following weeks and assess its performance.

Thanks so much for posting and happy to read the you like the set.

The pouch is real US leather, hand dyed and crafted by us.

The resin is not really translucent, it is the effect of the ultra high polish finish. Not only do we polish the resin to an inch of its life but we also apply several lacquer coats (+ polish between layers) to achieve that effect and result. It is a time consuming process, it is our signature and that we think customers appreciate.

Beautiful brush and packaging!
I’ve been trying to buy an Oku brush since I first saw an Alhambra 6 months ago.  
I’ve never managed to find a single brush for sale, anywhere.
It’s like admiring dark matter or the Higgs boson.
You know it’s there, but you can’t find it.
When was the last time anyone actually produced an Oku brush?

You can order one directly through them via PM (fmalpartida is the owner and posted above).  Incredible customer support all through the process.

Hi folks,

We are really struggling to put the brushes on our website. Before we have a chance to put any, they are gone.
To the point that the current waiting list is still growing and for some custom models there is a 2 month waiting list. We are stopping taking custom orders till we clear the backlog a bit. Regular models come through as drops but they hardly make the web.
At least there is a place to see our models and get in touch to pencil one in.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Not at all,  they just can't keep up with demand, I believe.  Every brush they make, they cant put up in the site cause its already being requested by someone through PMs, beforehand.   10/10 customer service.

Amazing performance right out the get-go with the Oku Sevilla,  im super impressed and will do a full review in a month after it fully breaks-in and have more experience with it. Rivals or exceeds anything I have tried, many brushes 2x the price of this.


But for now will share some post bloom pics after my first shave.
