Makers of Distinctive Wet Shaving Accoutrements

Nancy, my wife and business partner, and I make custom shaving brushes by hand in our Maryland Eastern Shore workshop.  Each step, from selecting, cutting, forming, and assembling raw materials to hand turning, sanding, buffing, and polishing, is performed by me.  I obsess over everything from design nuances, to special-order adhesives, to state-of-the-art inks used to imprint our logos. 

Such hand work requires time and attention to detail.  We try to fill orders within reasonable timeframes, but we do not rush.  Every brush—and brush handle—is completed to the best of our abilities.  Our patrons deserve no less.

Since 2016, we have been honored to collaborate with world-renowned knot maker Lee Sabini creating Morris & Forndran brush handles for him by hand, as described above.  Nancy ships finished handles to Mr. Sabini in the U.K. where he imprints each handle and hand-ties and fits the knots to align with each brush's design purpose or--with bespoken brushes, its new owner's requirements.
