Gratitude and respect for my father.

During clearing and removal work I found a brush handle form with the number 535 in an old cabinet. It is a very special handle shape with an octagonal facetted ring around the waist. This model was very popular in the 1960s and 1970s. It was also one of my father's favourite models. My father, Karl Blos, laid the foundation stone for the company shavemac in 1956. I would like to take the occasion of the rediscovery of this special shaving brush handle to pay my father my gratitude and respect for his life's work.

Brush handle number 535

1956 my father founded a company for plastic and wood processing. After a short time he specialized in the production of shaving brush handles. Nearly all well-known shaving brush manufacturers in Germany, France, England and Italy were among his customers.

1984 I got the opportunity to join the company.

1995 we started to also produce badger hair knots and sell shaving brushes under our own name. The brand shavemac was born.

Today after 25 years the company Shavemac stands for excellent handmade shaving brushes and individuality.

My father's diligence and perseverance is the foundation for my wonderful work today, where I am able to produce beautiful, high-quality and individual shaving brushes. For this I thank my father from the bottom of my heart. As a sign of my gratitude and appreciation, I am reviving the shape of the shaving brush handle 535 and am making a limited edition. The quantity produced corresponds to the number of years of life my father had reached, when he died in 2017.
He became 94 years old and therefore I make 94 shaving brushes.
