Idiosyncratic but engaging, The Gonzo shaving brush is named in honor of our friend Bob (aka "Gonzo") who inspired its creation. Combining a Beehive ferrule with conventional handle, The Gonzo has become an instant favorite among knowledgeable wet shavers.
The Gonzo shown is hand-crafted from col. 849/TM alternative ivory with a Tortoiseshell resin ferrule. Col.849/TM is a special cast polyester with the characteristics of true elephant ivory. This resin is so close to the real thing that it's been approved by the Victoria & Albert Museum, The National Trust, and, adding to its pedigree, is also recommended by Garrard of Mayfair, Crown Jewelers to the English Royal Family, for repairs and restoration of real ivory articles. Alternative Ivory has also been used to replace real ivory plaques in Windsor Castle.
You may order your Gonzo in a variety of resins to suit your particular style. Check out our Rod Inventory page to see what's currently available.
The BSSW Gonzo comes gift boxed with complete usage and care instructions, a signed Certificate of Authenticity, and our one-year written warranty!
