Developed in late 2012, the S7 is one of our earliest shaving brush patterns. The lower "handle" portion pays tribute to the Morris & Forndran L7 while ferrule while the ferrule is loosely patterned after the muzzle of a 16th-century Spanish cannon.
Available for the first time in Ebonite, this S7 shaving brush was completely hand-crafted on a manually-controlled wood lathe in a lovely German Ebonite redolent of a windblown wheat field on a starlit night. Filled with with our hand-tied 2-band Select Badger hair known for soft tips and moderate backbone.
Ebonite is a form of hard vulcanized rubber produced in southern Germany. Food-graded by the Fresius Institut, Ebonite has a beautiful appearance and an incomparably warm feel.
Although comparatively expensive, Ebonite machines easily given high lathe speeds and the gentle application of razor-sharp tools. This type of turning requires a fair amount of skill; but when executed with care, Ebonite rewards the diligent practitioner with an incredibly lustrous result. (If you look carefully, you can see my reflection near the bottom of the handle.)
