I am pretty sure this is a California company (although I could be wrong). They can be found at West Coast Shaving

Next they will have Gillette Fusion razors with handles made from 9 mm clips.

Oh my god, one reason NOT to shop at that particular shop - this is just simply too poor taste A6

Too freaky and bizarre for me... and poor taste as well, IMHO!

YMMV, as always...Undecided

Poor taste? If they're not your particular cup of tea, that's understandable. But saying they're in poor taste is being a bit dramatic.

I can see where some gun enthusiasts would enjoy the cross-over between two things they love.

However, who designed that video?
"There are men, and then there are real men! For generations real men demand the cleanest and best shaves every morning" Hey, yeah, that sounds like a good spot to show a guy on a bike who looks like he hasn't touched a razor in a week.....Facepalm

And what's with the semi-auto (beretta?) at the end of the vid?Laughing1
"Sorry boss, I know our company name is six shooter shaving, and we're promoting a revolver brush....but when I googled 'guy pointing a gun', that was the first thing that came up, is that not right?" Doubt


Way to go on the consistent brand/product imageClap

We're closer to talking about taste, a subject on which there are more opinions than politics Rolleyes

At any rate it don't look particularly comfortable to use, all other issues aside.

I saw those at WCS...as Ben stated looks like they are pretty much a novelty item...the knots didn't look all that good to me. Whether it's your style or not, I think your money would go a lot further as far as brush quality is concerned on another brush.

I think they could be neat if the prices weren't so outrageous. Plus the knot looks a bit lofty.

Being a firearm 'enthusiast' I didn't know what to make of the brush when I first saw it sometime ago. It seemed cheesy but at the same time, it was combining 2 things I enjoy so I was a bit on the fence of how I felt(though I never considered actually purchasing one).

After seeing the video, case closed. Some ideas may look good on paper but they don't translate well. It doesn't help that it is accompanied by over the top marketing. I'm glad I saw the video - now I know exactly how I feel about the brushes. I'd much rather get a real brush or put money towards an actual revolver or a U-haul full of toilet paper. YMMV - just how I feel about it. You won't find one of those anywhere near my den.
