Well, Tim being the generous guy that he is, whipped me up my own brush out of some beautiful Cocobolo he had in his shop and the mail man dropped it in my mailbox on Friday. I was like a kid on Christmas. It was so pretty when I unboxed it that it took me a whole day to actually put it to use. Truth be told, I considered just putting on a shelf in my studio as an art piece and continuing my lame shaving regimen, but I figured it was an object that was meant to be used and so I did. I was not disappointed.
This is the first shaving brush I've owned since the sorry one that I had in High School, and this one is in a whole different league, let me tell you. I'm generally a guy who sees shaving as more of a bother than a pleasure, but once the soap hit the brush and the brush hit my face, I was actually enjoying it. There is something nice about rituals that involve beautiful tools, and this is certainly the most beautiful shaving implement that I've ever owned.
Want your own? You can get to Tim through his website here, and check out his Etsy shop where there are a handful of brushes for sale right now.
