It's a magnetic brush with a magnetic maple brush stand. The magnet is plenty strong to securely capture the brush, but just tip the brush and it comes right off. Absolutely the perfect way to store your brush between shaves! See if you can figure out how I embedded the magnet in the brush handle. No, I didn't drill all the way down from the top! 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. The brush is genuine natural badger hair - very soft and long lasting. You can also choose a vegan brush - soft nylon with natural coloring. This is an artisan brush made by me! Mahogany has a straight, fine, and even grain, and is relatively free of voids and pockets. Its reddish-brown color darkens over time, and displays a reddish sheen when polished. It has excellent workability, and is very durable. It makes a fantastic choice for a craft shaving brush handle! You will just love the combination of the classic mahogany wood with natural, very soft badger hair brush or an all vegan brush. The stand and the bowl make this a complete kit for your morning shave (just add your razor!). Ships in a white cardboard box. Add custom lettering to the top of the stand to make it a personalized gift. See separate listing. Choose between my two shaving soap tins. * fir needle and petitgrain with natural lanolin * peppermint and eucalyptus I can also replace the badger hair with a vegan brush. Just select the option you prefer.. 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. Also - check out the travel kits! Happy shopping!
