Exquisitely hand crafted using the finest materials, our oiled bog oak and badger hair shaving brush is beautifully made in a tactile, elegant, curved cylindrical form and finished with a polished stainless steel collar. Measuring 11cm high, it makes and heirloom quality gift to provide a lifetime of faithful service.
An exceptional brush made from natural bog oak or 'abonos', which is partially fossilised, ancient wood so particularly dense and used for making the finest smoking pipes and shaving brushes. The wood is taken from tree trunks which have been naturally preserved over time by the conditions found in peat bogs, river beds or lakes which have similar bog-like conditions, usually many years or even centuries old, the darker the colour denoting older age.
All our shaving brushes will generate an excellent lather when used with our hard shaving soaps, available separately. Use soap and brush with warm water, generously applying lather to the entire beard area and then use a sharp, clean blade razor, working in the same direction as hair growth; start shaving at the sides of the face, working downwards and finish by working upwards under the chin from the throat. Rinse the brush thoroughly after use and allow to air dry, preferably on a shaving brush stand, also available separately.
