    Introducing our own ‘Cutty Sark’ shaving brush with Silvertip fibre bristles. The handles are turned from antique teak salvaged from the Cutty Sark following the 2007 fire which we have sanded and oiled and polished. The synthetic bristles are incredibly soft but have an excellent ‘backbone’ more akin to a badger hair brush but without any of the animal cruelty. Combine this with one of our safety razors, a shaving bowl and some double edged razor blades.

I listened and we have made 12 of these in a very limited run.  Would make a perfect set with one of our ‘Cutty Sark’ teak shaving brushes.
