The response to Wednesday’s post was very impressive – I got lots of comments from folks I hadn’t heard from in years.
One response pointed me in the direction of Don McIvor, a wood turner who makes exquisite shaving brushes and bowls for whipping up lather for a great shave.
The woods he selects are exotic beauties such as Tasmanian Rose Myrtle, Cocobolo and African Blackwood. The brushes are made of silver tipped badger hair for maximum shaving comfort.
Even if you aren’t interested in shaving this way, it’s hard to deny the artistry of Don’s work.
