Purple Heart Shave Brush
Handcrafted Shave Brush is made from Natural Purpleheart wood.
Undyed and in its natural state, it is a beautiful eggplant colored wood.
Sometimes called Amaranth, this colorful Latin American hardwood is tremendously popular for furniture and other designs that call for a unique splash of color.
In addition to its coloration, Purpleheart has excellent strength properties, and can be used in applications where strength is important—a wood for both form and function.
Our Handcrafted turned shave brush is made in the USA.
We hand-turn each piece so each one is unique.
Clear coated in polyurethane to seal and protect it.
Approximately 3 1/2" H by 1 1/2" W
Available in either synthetic or Natural Badger Hair in a 20mm knot.
Hair Knot Type & Quality
*Synthetic knots are made with nylon and are extremely soft and plush. Synthetic knots have below average water retention but don't smell like many real hair knots.
*Badger hair knots are sorted based on relative quality.
Mixed - Combination of Pure badger hair and boar hair.
Super - Higher grade badger hair taken from roughly 25% of the animal. Super knots perform almost as well as Silvertip and have soft tips.
Silvertip - Hair taken from approximately 3-5% of the animal, near the muzzle and neck. Hair has very good backbone and soft tips. Silvertip is highly sought after in the shaving community and generally commands higher prices. Our unbleached Silvertip knots have off-white tips.
