    Brush (See Post #4012)

    You won't regret it.. I was expecting it to be similar to a pure badger....prickly was pleasantly surprised. Lots of backbone and soft tips that break-in even softer after a dozen or so uses.

    Duke 2 or TGN Finest 2 Band?

    I'd contact Rudy Vey about reknotting that Duke. He does excellent work and I know he works with TGN knots, but he might have additional suggestions.

    PIF: VDH Badger Brush

    Thought I'd give an update on this. I ended up PIF'ing the brush to a friend at work that I got interested in wet shaving about two weeks after receiving it. He has been using it to face lather ever since and loves the brush. Here is the setup that I gave him as a starter kit.

    Morris & Forndran Members Group Buy Delivery Thread

    My Chief made it to me last night. Thanks Ken for all the extra hand holding, follow ups and communication. It truly is a beautiful brush, but I won't get a chance to try it out until Fri or Sat :sad: with Pics to follow soon after.

    Shave Brush Took a Dive

    Unless you were shaving in a nasty airport bathroom it should be fine. If you're really worried about it use a disinfecting wipe on the handle and do the new brush break in process on the bristles.

    A Rooney 1XL Heritage Review

    Looks like they are going fast. Says they only have 5 1XL's left and the 2XL is gone now.

    Please advice for a small badger brush.

    The Simpson case is affordable and works great for face lathering. I find it a little small for everyday use, but for traveling it's perfect.
