The Beehive is considered by many to be one of the most desirable shaving brushes ever. Of the many Beehives made over the past 10 years or so, the Rooney pattern of this century's first decade is, we believe, the most artistic rendering of this iconic design.
A true "tour de force" for the master turner, the Beehive offered here is meticulously hand-crafted to exacting standards in dramatic Purple Haze resin on a manually-controlled wood lathe before being carefully finished to mirror brightness. (Indeed, the care eye will notice the subtle reflections of the red box and white label in the first and second beads as well as the area to the left and center just below the bottom most ring--or bead as we call it.) At the same time, finishing-off the multi-colored resin is, in itself, a not-inconsequential challenge. We believe we are the only makers currently hand-crafting faithful renditions of the Rooney Beehive.
As with all BSSW brushes, the Beehive comes gift-boxed with complete usage and care instructions and a written one-year limited warranty.
