Brush Restorations

    

     Many shaving enthusiasts will agree that creating a good slick and rich lather is key to getting an amazing shave.  The best way to achieve this type of lather is with a high quality, high density 2 or 3-band synthetic or real badger hair brush.  Each vintage shaving brush restored by Sport Shaving has been completely cleaned, polished, and sterilized before shipping to you. Whether you have chosen a synthetic badger hair knot, boar, or a real badger knot you are sure to create some amazing explosive over-flowing lather, resulting in many BBS (baby butt smooth) shaves for years to come.
     Badger and Boar hair brushes typically require a break in period of about one month.  Do not be alarmed when you perform your first lather and your brush has an odor to it.  Real badger hair brushes also bloom very nicely after their first use.  It is suggested that you perform at least 3-4 lathers on your hand, forearm, or shaving mug before using your new badger brush on your face.  By doing this the 'new brush' smell will begin to fade and should be completely gone within a week.
     I recommend doing these test lathers on your hand and forearm to keep from unnecessarily drying out the skin on your face.  Synthetic brushes are some of the softest brushes available and do not require a break in period, or have a new brush scent.  Synthetic knots are great for enthusiasts who have allergies, sensitive skin, and are prone to irritation and redness.  Brushes will typically shed a few hairs during their first few weeks of use.  This is perfectly natural and there is nothing to worry about.  Once broken in completely, the shedding will stop except for the occasional random rogue hair.  
     A lot of time and effort goes into bringing these vintage beauties back to life.  First I have to find them....  Then the fun begins, I start by completely removing all of the original hair and then drilling the inside out until the brush is hollow.  I then fill the brush with a high polymer resin that will dry solid, making the brush much more sturdy then it was originally and adds a good amount of heft as well.  Lastly, I re-drill the brush handle to fit the desired knot size and the desired depth. Some brushes also require sanding, staining, touch up painting, and clear coats for protection.  Any wooden handle brush purchased here has been sanded smooth, stained multiple times until the desired color is achieved and then triple coated with a clear water resistant sealant. Finally, any final paint touch ups are applied if needed.
