The stabilized Bog Oak has finally arrived back here in the Vey house. This whole ordeal took now from ordering in the second half of November to get here in early February. But, now its here. There are already brushes in it promised, but I have material for a few more brushes.
I am contemplating to make another order with Shavemac soon. If someone is interested in knots, let me know as soon as you can. At the moment, I plan on making this order mid February (depending on number of knots, this may be faster or slower).
Email me to:
I remember that some guys were interested in a bog oak handled brush. As it looks I will be getting some nice pieces in early-mid next month. They will be then send out for resin stabilization. There might be wood for some 4-5 brushes. If interested, let me know, first come-first serve.
Muehle rally delivers fast...ordered last week and got the delivery yesterday.
The new batch of 23 mm STF knots do not longer have the ring, so they can be set at lower lofts
if required. They now look like the discontinued 25 mm STF, too bad they did drop this size without replacement.
I just got an email from Muehle with some bad news: they do no longer make the 25 mm STF knot!!
This was the one I used the most and I know you guys liked it as well a lot.
Send them an email back and asked if they have a replacement in the size planned.
Hope they do....but in the mean time, I...

After nearly seven (!!!) weeks, my new Shavemac, the limited edition "The Tribute" has arrived. I had feared the package was lost together with some knots I had ordered. Bernd made this brush to honor his late father, the brush is a design by the father, Karl Blos, and made by the son, Bernd...
I plan on making an order from Shavemac for knots. This time, I need to get to a certain number of knots to fill my order.
If someone is planning on having a brush made, now is the time to get in on this order.
Standard for me is to order the Two-band silvertip in the most common sizes, and...
...have already arrived, it was much faster than I anticipated! I expected them to be here in early -mid March.
Beautiful as ever, soft and stuffed with fibers. The loft can be set from 52-58 mm, but I think the best is around 54/55 mm - which
gives a nice back bone, but not too bad!! At the...
Contacted Muehle for more 25 mm STF knots, and I am happy to report that I will be getting a delivery early-mid March.
So, nobody has to worry, I will be able to offer this knot for the future in my brushes!!
I am running low on some of my Shavemac knots and plan on doing an order soon.

Let me know soon, as I plan on making the order within the next week/ten days, so it gets here before the...

Seen in Paris the other day, a cutlery store that also had shaving items: Muehle and Plisson brushes and a lot of straight razors, plus a humongous selection of very, very nice knives.
This one was displayed and I guess the total heights was a good 8-9". Nice looking brush!!
Way too much stuff in the Vey house, so some items must go.
I posted this also on the BST, but post it here now, too.
This is a lot of B&M Soaps, they are all used very little (maybe less than 5 times each), so pretty new.
The weight is the actual weight of soap and its container.
Here is what I...
