Brad Sears ShaveWorks Special Services

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

Our Special Services include:

Knot Replacement Services

We are happy to offer Knot Replacement Services on BSSW and most Morris & Forndran and Rooney brushes.  If you require Knot Replacement on a brush by one of these makers, please use our contact form to send us a photograph of the brush together with the knot size, the type of knot you want, and the country in which you are located.  We will prepare a time and cost quote for your review.

Please Note:  We regret that we are no longer able to offer Knot Replacement Services on brushes by other makers.  Instead, we recommend contacting the either the maker or a firm specializing in brush restoration.

    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, Shavemac or another high-end Badger 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 to one of our handles while staying true to the original design concept.  For example:

    • A larger and/or thicker M&F 1XL or 2XL handle
    • An original pattern Morris & Forndran 22mm Alibaba. 
    • An extra-long Polo handle. 
    • Or a special brush.  One patron wanted a 200-1 brush that included a piece of wood from his grandfather’s barn (See the above photo.) 
    • And so on.

    There are limits to what's practical (or possible), but we'll do our best to accommodate you.  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.
