All Moon shave brushes are handmade by Zachary Kent- no 2 are exactly the same.

The process starts with resin and various other materials being placed into a form and cast under pressure (60 psi) for a few hours.  The rectangular block is then removed from the form and placed on a lathe. The hole is cut for the knot, sanded and sealed. The outer shape is then cut at a speed of about 2,000 rpm. The final shape is then sanded to 1200 grit and coated with 10 layers of super durable Cyanoacrylate finish. (Sanding between layers, of course) After the 10th layer is hardened, the handle is wet sanded to 12,000 grit. Finally, the handle gets 3 rounds of liquid plastic polish and high speed buffing to bring out the glass-like shine. The knot is glued in place with a 2 part epoxy.
