Welcome to Brad Sears Shave Works!

Makers of Distinctive Wet Shaving Accoutrements

Brad Sears ShaveWorks is a small husband and wife business located on the Maryland Eastern Shore about half an hour from the Chesapeake Bay!  We are dedicated to producing some of the finest completely handcrafted shaving brushes available in the world today.  

To that end, we offer shaving brushes in our own classically-inspired designs and, through our collaboration with world-renowned English knotmaker Lee Sabini, the iconic Morris & Forndran patterns.  Under this arrangement, Brad hand crafts Morris & Forndran brush handles as well as our own, by hand, on a manual wood lathe in our Maryland Eastern Shore workshop.

Brush handles slated for Morris & Forndran knots are carefully packed and shipped to the U.K. where Lee hand crafts each knot to fit each specific handle.  At the same time, brushes to be filled with our Select, Special, and Silvertip Badger are completely finished in the USA!

The end result is a return to truly hand-crafted shaving brushes painstakingly handmade by master craftsmen much the way brushes were made 100 (and more) years ago.  

“I just used the brush for the first time and it was amazing!  You were spot on with the knot recommendation.  It was so soft (probably the softest badger I own) and just the right amount of backbone.  The handle looks even better in person and feels awesome in the hand.  I am thoroughly impressed.” -Ryan D.  (Brad’s comment:  Ryan refers to his new Chichester with a 26mm Special Badger knot.)
