These are shaving brushes made to show two domestic woods in the handles. The lighter one is Hard Maple and the darker is Black Walnut. The brush itself is Badger Hair, considered the top source for shaving brushes. These particular knots (what the brush part without the handle is called) are A- Grey grade, 21mm in diameter. The grades run from B, Black, 14mm in diameter to AAAA+ SilverTip, 30mm in diameter and about half again as tall.
For this grade they are generally under $50 each, while the top grade SilverTip brushes are priced between $200 and $300. There really is that much difference in the quality of the individual knots, and can be that great a difference in the beauty of the wood chosen.
Each handle is individually turned and there is the possibility of adding silver or gold hardware on the base and where the knot is fitted into the handle. These features are part of the conversation that will take place should you want one of these shaving brushes custom made.
