Want to go all vegan? This kit features my stunning, hand turned, beautiful western maple handle topped with deep crimson bubinga wood, finished to a high gloss. The brush is not animal based - it is a faux badger hair brush made with soft nylon to give you a complete vegan experience. This is an artisan brush made by me! Western maple is renowned for its strength and dramatic grain features. It is much lighter than eastern maple, and provides a superb partner to the darker crimson bubinga. 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. You will just love the combination of the gorgeous white ash and bubinga with the all vegan faux badger hair brush. You can find brushes of this quality for much, much more elsewhere. And just try to find such a dynamite combination of quality in a vegan product. Add custom initials or a monogram to the bottom of the brush handle with my custom lettering. See separate listing for the add-on. I will also include my vegan peppermint and eucalyptus shaving soap. 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.
