Our “B2 Pikeman” shaving brush has a buffalo nickel coin inlayed in end of handle (buffalo side up) with a decorative red outer ring. The three-inch tall handles is progressively sanded and buffed, then finished with a hand-rubbed Danish oil to bring out the natural luster of the material and to help make the brush handles water resistant. Currently, we offer our brush handles in two wood choices:
- * Stabilized Spalted Tamarind
- * Blackwood
– Burmese Blackwood (Dalbergia cultrata) is a beautiful, dense Southeast Asia wood. Heartwood color is variable, and ranges from a medium olive or reddish brown to a darker purplish brown, frequently with nearly black streaks throughout. Color tends to darken with age. Grain can be irregular. With a uniform medium texture and very good natural luster.
– Spalted Tamarind (Tamarindus indica) is a beautiful African wood. Much of this pale yellow sapwood comes from logs that were either found on the forest floor or were cut and then allowed to spalt in the very damp warm conditions of the jungle. The colors and various line patterns are truly unique from one piece to another. Stabilized woods are woods that have been impregnated under a vacuum with a polymer resin. The pressurized injection forces the resin into all the spaces and pores in the wood. This greatly increases its durability, and resistance to atmospheric change. The wood becomes heavier, more stable, and much more resistant to water.
Upgrade Brush Knot Option: For $15 more, you can upgrade your brush knot to premium, Silver tip Badger Hair knot.
The knots are brand new, pre-bloom (the fan will be much wider once broken in).
Total Brush Height: 5.25″
