The S8/26 continues our practice of updating classic shaving brush designs giving a fresh new look and improving their ergonomics while, at the same time, retaining their sense of timeless "classisity." In this case, we began with the basic M6 ferrule which we mated, by means of a 2-bead "belt" to the PK-47 handle (used by the kind permission of Dark Hollar Design Works.) In this way, the convex ferrule (this is, the part of the handle that contains the knot) flows naturally into the concave handle base forming a gentle "ogive (pronounced ho-jive) curve." (The sharp eye will notice how the curve of the upper bead mirrors the curve of the ferrule!)
The example shown was hand-crafted on a manual wood lathe from exotic Tortoiseshell resin and filled with our 26mm Silvertip badger hair at 52mm loft. You may also order your S8/26 in Morris & Forndran Blonde or Finest Badger.
Please see our Rod Inventory page to see what's available.
As with all our BSSW shaving brushes, the S8 comes gift boxed with complete usage & care instructions, a signed Certificate of Authenticity, and our one-year warranty.
