WELCOME

This is the website of New Forest Brushes, established by Fido, a shaving enthusiast and blogger, publisher of Fido's Shaving Blog and Fido's Shaving Brush Blog.

Brush heads are made by hand to our specification in China, handles are shaped individually by hand tools on a lathe in the New Forest using high quality polyester resin rods supplied in Hampshire, decal logos made in Lymington are added and the brushes are sold directly to customers. Very low overheads enable prices to be set well below those of brushes of comparable quality.

The brushes currently available are described below.

OUR SHAVING BRUSH HANDLES

We make our handles the traditional way - each one is shaped by hand tools on a lathe and polished by hand. Any small irregularity, unevenness or minimal marks are not a manufacturing defect but an assurance that this is a genuine handmade product. Any brush handles that we are not happy with are treated as seconds and will appear as special offers from time to time at a substantial discount.
