Homemade Shaving Brush

Continuing to groove on the straight razor thing, and having made shaving soap and a strop, it seemed natural to make a brush. I'm doing fine with the the horsehair brush I got for free off B&B, but I wanted to experience what badger hair has to offer.

Actually I bought the 22mm Super Badger Bulb from The Golden Nib, but I made the handle and did the assembly. The ferrule is laser etched titanium. The handle is maple finished with oil & wax, secured to an aluminum disk plug with an M4 stainless screw. The knot was installed with epoxy.
