This beautiful Desert Ironwood brush has just been added to my site at www.eliterazor.com.

Desert Ironwood only grows in the washes and valleys of the Sonoran Desert below 2,500 foot elevation.   Desert Ironwood is very hard and dense. It actually sinks in water.  Tradition has it that carvings made from the Desert Ironwood bring good fortune and long life.  Desert Ironwood reaches maturity at 2000 years, more or less.  It was originally used by the Seri Native Americans of Mexico for tool handles.  Today the Seri Indians make carvings of desert plants and animals from the ironwood. Desert Ironwood was the original choice of material for the grips of the Colt .45 handgun.

I recently received an email from a gentleman who said, "I love your brushes, but do you only make large ones?".  I admit to having a personal preference for larger brushes and I realized that my bias was evident in my work.  So, I've embarked on a project to build a series of smaller brushes, beginning with the classic Chubby style.  These are the first pieces to be finished and are now listed and available on my site.

I have gotten back to building a couple of larger brushes and have just listed these two at www.eliterazor.com.  I typically turn my handles with smooth curves, so I thought I would do a couple with more defined edges.  Although these would look good with a Bulb shaped knot, I think they look great with a Fan.

For those of you that like a larger, manly size brush, this may be for you.  This blue Lapis brush measures 88mm in height, excluding the knot.  The tapering down to the base makes it very comfortable in the hand.  The Pyrite veining in this handle is just beautiful.

A couple of Honduran Rosewood burl brushes that have just been added to my site at www.eliterazor.com.

Honduran Rosewood burl is found in Belize (British Honduras) and in river areas throughout Central America.  The heartwood varies from brown to deep purple varying from light to dark in color. The sapwood is a contrasting light or cream blonde color.  Since Honduran Rosewood turns well, it is used often for knife handles and piano legs. Other uses include percussion bars of xylophones, and fingerboards for banjos, guitars and mandolins. It is also used in fine furniture and cabinets, with highly figured logs sliced for decorative veneers and inlay work.

I have been trying out some new shapes and colors and these are the first two to make it to completion.  Both have a beautiful shimmer when the light hits them that is hard to properly capture in these pictures.  They have just been listed on my site at www.eliterazor.com.

I have completed a couple of new brushes that have just been listed on my site at www.eliterazor.com.  The first is the other half of the Pastel Dream piece that was shown in my previous post.  The other two are experimental pieces where I was trying some new color combinations and are priced accordingly.
