Hi, I'm Brent. Thanks for looking at my shaving brushes.

These hand turned brushes are each created to last and are custom fitted with the type of brush hair you require.

When I wanted to replace an old and well-worn shaving brush, I was shocked by the prices of commercially available brushes. The best brushes were out of my price range, and the ones I found affordable didn't come highly recommended. After locating a supplier for badger hair knots, I decided to turn my own handle and create a high-quality brush for a decent price. Now I'm making my custom shaving brushes available to you. I believe an everyday item like a shaving brush doesn't need to be boring. I strive to create brushes that are as pleasant to use as they are to look at, crafted from beautiful woods and finished perfectly.

The new shaving soap bowls are crafted by hand by Badger and Mushroom artist Nicole Morales. Each is one-of-a-kind and specially designed for shaving lather use.

Most brushes are complete and ready to be shipped. A few have options for the quality and cut of bristles you require. The following types are available, although not all are available for each size brush:

  • Super Silvertip
  • Silvertip Grade A
  • Silvertip Standard grade
  • Super Badger
  • Best Badger
  • Finest Badger
  • Pure Badger
  • Boar
  • Nylon Synthetic

Brushes are also available in bulb or fan trims. There's more about the difference here.

Shipping is now free in the US. Please allow one week for custom finishing and delivery of your purchase. For information about overseas shipping, please contact me by email before ordering. For this or any other questions, feel free to email me: brent@brentmjohnson.net.
