Welcome to the world of truly one of a kind Griffith Shaving Goods shaving brushes. Individually designed and meticulously handmade by artist,designer and Griffith Shaving Goods founder Matthew Wojtaszek, these brushes were created as objects of art as well as a luxurious shaving accessories you can use every day.
By pairing the finest natural and man-made handle materials with the highest grades of hand-sorted badger hair, each brush is a delight to the senses.
Brush No. 40 features a heavy handle carved from a section of over 10,000 year old Siberian Wooly Mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius ) tusk. The ivory is very attractively figured and the sides in particular show the gorgeous schreger lines (Schreger lines are visual artifacts that are evident in the cross-sections of ivory. They are commonly referred to as cross-hatchings, engine turnings, or stacked chevrons). Some age fractures were filled with real crushed turquoise and resin, giving the handle a striking appearance. The entire handle has been polished to a super smooth high gloss & coated with Renaissance wax.
Note: there are some sound fractures typically found in this fossil material, and they have been fully stabilized and sealed for stability and water resistance.
The brush features a 22mm diameter knot of finest quality silky soft Silvertip badger hair. These rare bristles have the softest tips of any badger hair possible, and this dense knot assures a luxurious thick lather.
It will arrive in a custom presentation box with a care guide featuring a wax seal, the artist’s signature and a complimentary tin of Renaissance Wax to keep the brush handle protected and looking its best.
