I just received this new black badger brush handmade by Brad of www.thecopperhat.ca  and its lovely - its turned from a piece of birds eye maple burl, stabilized and dyed and it really is a beauty to hold.  The knot is black badger which I specified because I like the scratchy-ness of it but you can specify silver tip if you like.  If you're patient he will craft to your specification.  Great service.

Is Carlos a weimaraner? We're going to convert DFS to a shaving and dog site!

Great eye! He is indeed. We are heavily involved with a Weim rescue. Unfortunately he passed after a great 14 years. We subsequently adopted a brother and sister who are now 5yo, Cooper and Quinn.

Weimaraners are beautiful, we had one living next door for a number of years. I think they're great dogs. We had 2 standard poodles a black and a brown but the black one , Bill, got old and passed on so now we're down to just Charlie.

Marko I've met Brad on several occasions and he's a swell guy. I love his little shop. He does most of the brush-making there and last time I was there he showed me a few things he was working on. Next time I'm in I'll have to grab one from him!

Hi Gareth, Brad and his wife were really great to work with through the brush making process and the brush is a beauty - I'm glad to hear more positive comments about the Copper Hat.
