Announcement   I've been thinking about this for a while and have come to the conclusion that my ultra-low pricing is not sustainable. I still desire to offer fantastic brushes at great prices, and feel that my new prices will still reflect and achieve that goal. Beginning on Friday, September 1, 2017, my pricing will increase to $37.50 for a handle only order, and $45.00 for a complete brush with a 24mm Tuxedo, Cashmere, or BOSS knot. I will also expand some dynamic pricing to account for more time intensive work and more expensive material, which will only be a few dollars extra.

I spend a lot of extra time making sure that each handle has a flawless finish, and feel that even with slightly higher prices I will still be offering among the best deals in artisan made shaving brushes. If you have any further questions about this price adjustment, please feel free to contact me. Thank you for your tremendous support, and I hope that this modest price increase is understandable.

I'm still focusing on making non-custom brushes mostly. I still have a few custom orders to finish out but will continue my break from custom orders for the time being. Thanks everyone for your support!

Super classy look. Colors seem to float under the surface when the light hits it. Enjoying the longer handles. Keep up the great work. Thanks

About

I'm sick of boring shaving brush handles and prohibitively expensive artisan handles, I want my quality to far exceed my price point, and it does.

Those beautiful, handemade shaving brushes. We've all seen them, but they are always so expensive! Then there are the affordable options, but the quality can be hit or miss. I know I'm not the only guy doing quality work at this price, but I aim to have the lowest possible prices, with the highest possible quality.

    I have been living in the Wild West of Florence, Arizona, for eight years. When I'm not at my day job or the lathe, I'm spending time with my wife and two kids. Thanks for stopping by!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I'll be happy to personalize your order in any color or shape I've made, with a few exceptions. Let me know what shape and color and I'll get it made. Please do not ask me to copy shapes which are unique to another artisan. I'd be happy to look at classic, non-unique shapes and let you know if I could reasonably match them. Some personalized orders may incur an additional charge (order or create a blank from two or three pieces/the handle is especially decorative). When your brush is done, I'll create a listing and send pictures. If you do not like the way it turned out, you are not obligated to buy it. I don't want you to feel "stuck" with something you don't like. I want everyone with a Wild West Brushworks brush to absolutely love it.

Can you lower the declared amount on the customs documentation?

I understand the concern with customs fees and import VAT when buying from Europe, but falsifying the customs forms could get me in a lot of trouble. Being in law enforcement, even being accused of a petty offense could cost me my real job, and of course there's the risk of additional fines and penalties. I agree that the VAT and administrative fees that get added are excessive, but falsifying customs documentation is illegal, and is not something I will do.
