Special Services

Brad Sears ShaveWorks Special Services

If you have a need for a special personalized service, perhaps we can provide it.

Our Special Services include:

Brush Re-Knotting

If you have a tired or worn out brush that needs a new knot, we are happy to make it happen!  Our normal re-knotting service costs $35.00, plus the price of the replacement knot.  Return shipping is free.  Normal turnaround is about a week if we can use an in-stock knot.

We normally stock high-end badger knots in 24-30mm sizes.  If your brush needs a different size knot, we will discuss options with you before proceeding.

Some brushes, like vintage EverReady’s, sometimes need additional work that we would need to charge for.  If that’s the case, we will let you know what’s needed and get your OK before moving forward.

Special knots in BSSW handles

Knot preferences are highly subjective!  (After all, some people like Bentley’s others prefer BMW’s.).  Although we spend a lot of time, effort, and money finding the best knots we can, we know some folks will want something different.

So if you would like a Morris & Forndran—or some other—knot in one of our handles, let us know and we’ll do our best to make it happen.  If we can do it, we will send you a Time & Price quote for you to approve.

Multi-Resin handles

Multi-color—what we call “multi-resin”—brush handles can make a very distinctive shaving brush, as you can see in our Gallery.  Let us know if you would like a multi-resin handle that’s not listed on our Custom pages, and we’ll see what we can do.  If your request is do-able, we will send a Time & Cost quote for your approval.

Brush Handle modifications

Because we turn our brush handles on a manual wood lathe, we can make minor design changes while staying true to the original concept.  For example:  one patron asked for an original pattern Morris & Forndran 22mm Alibaba.  Another requested an extra-long Polo handle.  Still another wanted a 200-1 brush that included a piece of wood from his grandfather’s barn.  And so on.

There are limits to what's practical (or possible), but we'll do our best to accommodate you request.  Simply write your request on our Contact Form and we will be happy to send you a Time and Price quote.

We just ask that you have a specific idea in mind before reaching out to us.  And please don’t ask us to copy another maker’s design (we respect their copyrights!)—or to develop a completely new handle. (We wish we had the time….)

Reproduction of original Morris & Forndran and Vintage brush handles

If you would like a Morris & Forndran or Vintage brush handle we don’t list, let us know and we’ll see if we can make it for you.  If we believe we can make the handle, we will send you a Time & Cost quote. 

We can often develop dimensions from photographs, but you should understand that we must charge for the time needed to do that.  Any such estimates will be included in your price quote and those charges must be paid before work can begin.
