I'm interested in art and design, and I noticed on Instagram that Design Milk posted a piece on a collaboration between Harry's and Good Thing (design company) on reimagining the shaving brush: http://design-milk.com/good-thing-and-ha...th-design/

Personally, I believe many of these appear undesirable from a shaving perspective. Some of them are meant to be just art pieces, but it's hard to find many that would be functional. Many of the knots appear to be pure badger or random synthetics that are not set at typical lofts. I was tempted to link to the Paladin, Varlet, etc. sites, so they could see some better examples of shaving brushes that emphasize aesthetics AND function.

Anyway, I just thought it was interesting and worth passing along here.

"The Art of NOT Shaving" ....how can you make a badger more vicious than it already is? Tell it that it's hair is going to be attached to a cone or a rock or a glob of silver pokey looking thing and called a shave brush.

Very interesting. However, I would still need to be able to use the brush as that is the main purpose of it. Smile

a few of them are pretty decent looking...but most of them are totally useless. such a shame to waste product, especially if badger/boar hair was used.

Some of those brushes are artwork, but not very functional. Good design is both esthetically pleasing and functional. There are a few brushes at that link that fit the bill quite nicely. The ones by Earnest Studio, Gabriel Tan, Harry’s Design Team, Jonah Takagi, and MSDS look really good to me. Perhaps we should invite them here...

Agree 100%. I particularly like the one by Earnest Studio.

Looks like they were just shoving knots in anything that had a hole.

But that's art I guess.

I can see Kim and Kanye Kardashian speaking right now: "How do lather your bunghole and your junk at the same time? THIS boomerang brush. All yours for $499. Wolfman razor not included."

I find most of these downright ugly, frankly. The one that appeals to me somewhat is arguably the least "design-ish" of the lot -- this one, by Jonah Takagi, Washington, D.C. -- although it looks like a stifled sneeze would knock it over.
