Our vision behind The Archibald was to create a more ergonomic version of the iconic Chubby-style brush. The idea began to gel when we noticed a vintage brush called the Old Original on one of the shaving forums. Although not exactly what we had in mind, that brush provided the spark to make things happen.
We began by raising the relative position of the central ring. That seemingly simple act gave much needed room for the finger groove. We also altered the geometry of the finger groove so that the middle finger sits more naturally--and firmly--against the central ring while the index finger rides naturally over the ferrule and the thumb easily "locks" the brush in place.
The Archibald is hand-turned in two sizes in your choice of resins (which may selected from our Resin Inventory) and filled with our 2-Band 1801A2B Select Badger.
As with all BSSW shaving brushes, the Archibald comes gift boxed with complete usage & care instructions, a signed Certificate of Authenticity, and one-year warranty.
