Welcome to Brad Sears Shave Works!
Makers of Distinctive Wet Shaving Accoutrements
Please check out The Custom Morris & Forndran page for a special announcement concerning Rooney/Morris & Forndran Shaving Brush design ownership.
Brad Sears ShaveWorks creates traditional shaving brushes that reflect the spirit of master craftsmen whose skills were meticulously refined by decades of experience. Our tools and techniques are time-honored, and applied with a level of discipline--attention to detail--seldom seen in today's era of computer-controlled mass production..
Through collaboration with world-renowned knot maker Lee Sabini, we are the maker of Morris & Forndran brush handles and the sole purveyor of Morris & Forndran shaving brushes to the United States. As with all our brushes, we hand-craft Morris & Forndran brush handles on a wood lathe in our Maryland Eastern Shore workshop. We pack and ship the turned handles to Morris & Forndran in the United Kingdom where Mr. Sabini imprints the Morris & Forndran logo and provenance before hand tying the knots to fit each individual handle. Morris & Forndran are one of only two or three firms we know of who follow this practice. It is a practice we are honored to support.
Similarly, our BSSW knots are hand-crafted to our detailed specifications by carefully selected makers in China. Through a time-intensive sampling/refinement process, we test and validate both our specifications--and the prospective knot maker's ability to meet those specifications--before engaging them to produce the knots that fill our handles. Even then, every shipment is carefully tested to ensure compliance with these specifications before the first knot is offered to you, our Patrons. As such, all our brushes carry a one-year Limited Warranty.
