Tsur is one of the Israeli members in the wet-shaving forum club. Tsur joined the club from its first day that it has been founded back in 2015. This club connects between people who find the old fashion shaving enjoyable and much better from the modern shaving, both in the result and as a hobby.
As part of the whole world of wet-shaving, it a journey of searching the Nirvana. The Nirvana is to find the most suitable and the best setup for your skin. The beauty of wet-shaving, that each member finds its own setup that works best for him. There isn’t an one and only one answer. Each one finds its own best soap to his skin, each one finds its own best razor, and each one finds its own best shaving brush.
Tsur: “The journey of searching the best brush took a few months. It involved two parts: find the best knot, find the best handle. The most hardest part is to find the knot that you think that will be the best for you. In Israel we don’t have local shops that sell knots and you can “touch” it before you buy it. So, you must in one way, to make a proper research on your choices, and addition to take the risk to buy a knot that might not pleased you. I started to search a knot that will be special, due to the fact that I already have Silvertip brush that I really pleased with. But, I want a better one. The one that will be the Rolls Royce of the knots. After a few months of research I decided to go on High Mountain badger hair.”
Tsur continue: “The badger hair is characterized with very soft hair, on the other hand with backbone that it is not too soft. Although, In the community there are some disagrees about which is better, the Silvertip or the High mountain.”
“The knot that I bought is a High mountain badger hair in size of 26mm. It is very dense and with the exactly fill I was looking for. It is very soft with a solid backbone.”
Tsur found his knot we wanted. Now he started to search for the handle.
Tsur continue: “The handle was the second part of this journey. I was looking for a handle that will be special. The one that will make me excited every shave. The one that I’ll look at her and will not been bored.”
“The handle it mixed of materials. It hand-made, and it is therefore, unique. There is only one handle that it is exactly the same”
“The light make the handle looks difference from every angle. Difference light brings out difference shapes and sparkle.”
“It has a nice one cent coin in its bottom. I though for first to make custom-made coin from gold, but I decided to stay on the budget I plan to spend on this project.”
“After sticking the knot with 2-part epoxy, the knot and the handle became a brush. Beautiful brush. Even above my expectations.”
The bush was been film at our Studio. We were very excited to bring this DIY project into the pictures. We are really like that the pictures are really look the same as the brush in real life. BTW, We are not a professional in brushes, but this one is really … really soft !
