Innovator Burled Box Elder



Burled Box Elder

Local Box Elder Burls are used to create these rich and famous wet shaving brushes. Rattlestick uses the same robust wood condition process for all lines of our products. The look and feel of these brushes are similar, yet each individual brush comes with it's unique look and personality. This burled and pinned brush is in the traditional style, thick and smooth.

The Anatomy of Primal

Badger hair provides a luxurious shave, holding water and heat much better than synthetic brushes. Premium silvertip badger hair is of superior quality and has an extra soft feel.  The beautiful silver and black lines lend to the overall aesthetics of this brush. Using a brush lifts the hairs on your face for a closer shave, so you may notice less irritation. Best combined with naturally-derived solid shaving soaps or shaving creams, avoiding synthetic foams and gels for the highest quality shave.

This premium brush combines very well with raw shaving soap.

Adversity can destroy but it can also create. Like the pearl that forms from a grain of sand inside the shell of an oyster, a tree creates burls to protect itself from an irritant. Instead of growing in concentric circles, the grain of wood twists and curves finding a new way to be in the face of a problem. Burled wood symbolizes forging a new path in the face of adversity.
