Here’s the description of Manchurian Mountain Badger hair:
We have searched the mountains and lowlands of China for over a year trying to locate the source of the fabled Manchurian badger. At long last, we’ve finally found the correct hair. We’re calling it Manchurian Mountain Badger because it’s not quite the same as Simpson’s Manchurian, but it is as close as we are able to get due to different processing methods by the hair dressers.
Characterized by a very firm backbone and tips on the scrubby side, this hair is extremely hard to come by. The knot feel is very firm with scrubby, but soft tips. This grade of hair is missing most of the prickle/tickle/harshness that Simpson’s Manchurian has. Hence, it’s not 100% the same.
We are pleased to announce that our retail section has been converted into an amazon webstore. This will provide a more refined shopping experience and accurate inventory quantities to you, our customers.
Introducing our brand new shaving brush stand. After months of development, we finally found a manufacturer who was able to produce a shaving brush stand commensurate with the quality you expect from Wet Shaving Products at a reasonable price.
Featuring solid brass construction, a solid base weighing 205 grams, and a nickel/chrome finish, this stand will elegantly display and store your shaving brush!
Use discount code: UEEOOH9G for $5 off through September.
These new grades are a prototype of sorts. Due to the rarity of the hair and high labor costs, this may be the one and only run of this hair, depending on the reception and comparison to the normal grades. All knots are 23/24 mm x 66mm in a hybrid fan/bulb shape.
My detailed descriptions of the hair and how it feels can be found on the hair grades page.
10 knots of each were ordered, several are already spoken for. Email me to confirm availability. The checkout link will be removed when inventory drops below 4 knots.
Finally, the long anticipated arrival of the WSP version of the tried and true boar brush has arrived. Featuring a 21mm knot, wooden handle, and a 55mm loft. However, due to the new handle shape, they don’t fit in our current boxes and I had to order replacements due in the coming weeks. But, the brushes are available without boxes.
They’re back! By popular demand, the black badger brushes have returned with a new look and more ergonomic handle. Unfortunately, the same issue with the boar brushes. Too tall to fit in the current boxes.
It’s finally here! A lot of people have been anticipating this arrival. Well, they’re finally here and everything I’ve said about them is true. Stock loft of 52/53mm, 26mm diameter. The loft is customizable up to 56mm, perhaps longer. They will be up on the website soon, but for now if you want to order one, use the link below. And if you want to customize the loft, it’s an extra $15. Send me an email.
New extra density knots will soon be available. Just like the Stubby knots, these knots are up to 75% more dense than the competition. Available 32mm: Premium Silvertip, SuperFine, & Finest. Finest knots available in sizes 26 mm & 28 mm. Send me an email if you want to order any right now. Checkout the preview picture for the new 32mm knot size.
