The combination of walnut with bubinga is quite stunning. Both woods offer a deep, textured grain. The dark walnut highlights the incredibly beautiful bubinga like nothing else. The brush is genuine natural badger hair - very soft and long lasting. This is an artisan brush made by me! Bubinga has a close resemblance to rosewood, and features a host of stunning grain figures, and has an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio. The dark color and the incredible depth to the grain makes this a fantastic gift for that someone special in your life. Add custom lettering to the bottom of the brush for a personalized gift. See separate add-on listing. Choose between my two shaving soap tins. * fir needle and petitgrain with natural lanolin * peppermint and eucalyptus The tin makes it super easy to pack for a trip. Just pop the top back on and throw it in your suitcase. Everyone using this soap loves how it reduces razor burn and leaves the skin feeling soothed and rejuvenated. Just a little water and you can easily whip up a nice lather that will last as long as your shave. Rinse after use. if you leave the top off the soap will reharden, and last a very long time. This makes a great gift for Dads, brothers, Grandpops and colleagues. I can make any brush with a vegan brush knot. Just let me know! Happy shopping!
