Let me share with you the work of William Barber of California. William , known to his friends as Bill, accomplished many things in his life. To the shaving community, Bill was known as one of the best custom shave brush makers in the world. Bill's brushes were sought after by Hollywood celebrities, professional sports athletes and many members in the art of old school shaving. Bill was a member of the shaving forum Straight Razor Place; he used the member name "Pixelfixed". Most of the photographs shown here were taken by Bill & contributed to the forum. This collection on Google+ allows the rest of the world to appreciate the craftsmanship that Bill put into his work. If you are fortunate enough to own one of his brushes, you may see it here.
William Barber left us on April 4th, 2016; his lathe went silent.

Absent from our table, but not forgotten.

We miss you Bill,
Hirlau
