Fumbling about.
The month ends with this smallish (for me) but lovely brush.

This knot is a Rudy Vey Manchurian. (Yes, I looked it up in my notes and found the information here.)

Very nice brush to end this month. Mostly I use badgers anyway so it's not been a stretch. Still, I appreciate @SharpieB for hosting this month long event. Thank you, sir. It's been fun.

Happy shaves to everyone,

Last shave of the month for BADGERary. Was fun while it lasted! Used the Viking ebonite brush with Odin's Beard knot SHD badger? Never quite got an answer if this is really badger hair or not when I bought it from @FloridaCreekIndian back in Oct. 2022. Vikingsoap's website itself is cryptic other then it's a 2 band hair selected to his preference. @FloridaCreekIndian even stated it's probably an Oumi knot from China, so who knows if those are even real badger or not. Oddly enough this was my first time using it after owning it for over a year Performed well enough. Always love the Pomp rose scent and the Wolfman WR2 2.00 OC side is super efficient. No cuts, weepers or irritation. I did use my old standby of PAA Cube 2.0 pre shave prior to the Pomp. Finished off with the brand new Tr矇sor AS which compliments the Pomp superbly.

EDIT: anyone know why the label of the Tr矇sor AS is so dark and hard to read? I don't really understand that since all of Mohammed's other labels are nothing like that.
