Back in stock!! We have more BrushCraft brushes from artisan brush-maker, Chris Trimble. We’re launching two new collections: Art Moderne & Bow Tie. Each handle that Chris creates is unique and they sell out fast around here. Check out his new options.
BrushCraft uses a unique mix of materials: wood, metal, & resin. Resin turns much like wood, allows for a nearly unlimited selection of colors and patterns, maintains water resistance, cleans up easily, and endures for generations. Each brush becomes a work of art in your shaving den.
Chris first began turning shaving brush handles after he acquired a 1950s Craftsman lathe from the unlikely source of his local barber. He had always enjoyed working wood on a lathe, but why not join his love of the lathe with his developing passion for wet shaving. “I believe 2012 is when I started selling my shave brush. It started so I could support my vintage razor collection. It all started out innocent enough. Before I even knew that I would start collecting, I thought I was going to save some money!”
The Art Moderne Collection has a pop art feel. It seems to take inspiration from Andy Warhol and his elevation of everyday objects. This handle has a light bulb vibe to it. The stainless steel rings, like the threading of a bulb, give grip to wet fingers. The bulbous bottom fits nicely in the hand. The Bow Tie Collection is a high-class combination of resin & wood. Combinations like copper & teakwood burl are reminiscent of wood paneled dens. Others with bright swirls and sparkles bring your shave to life. There is something for everyone in this collection of brushes – and each one is one-of-a-kind. All brushes contain top-of-the-line Silvertip Badger hair for $124.00.
