    I had not made any brushes for yonks, but the Pottery owner, in the village, asked if I would make some for her. They do aid in the sales of her shaving bowls.

    Hence, these three.

    This handle is bone
    from the
    inside of a Highland Cow horn. 30mm Finest badger knot.

    Red Deer antler, African blackwood base, pinned with a wee bit of Spalted Beech. 25mm 2 band Finest badger knot.

    Lastly, a fairly basic Boar bristle knot, in a Red Deer antler handle. The base is sealed and polished.

    I have another three knots making their way from China. They are 22mm Finest, and will have antler handles, with buffalo horn collars. Bases will be Oak, black wood, and spalted beech.





    Steve.
