Brush Acquisition Thread

I visited West Coast Shaving yesterday and I picked the B&B 10th anniversary brush and a matching Merkur Futur Silvertip brush

After joining the web site I realized that my 30 yr old C40 needs to be refurbished. So off I went to Ebay and found this gem. I don't think it's been used but if it has the former owner took great care with it. Not bad for $16.50 inc. shipping.

Here it is

IMG_0323.JPG Visited my old friends at Pasteur Pharmacy yesterday and picked up the little inexpensive gem of an Omega. Already started to bloom. For the first time in 25 years I had a splendid Proraso red lather evenly applied with no quills on my face!
 


I’ve been on a big declaration kick lately and the majority of the brushes I have received recently have been Declaration or declaration knotted custom brushes.

Just need a couple more of the older brushes to complete my collection!

How soft are the hairs on the MS? I have one on order. What does it compare to, to you? Was the funk bad? How long did it take to come in? Sorry for all the questions. I'm kinda anxious.
Delivery was 15 days after my order was place. Very soft. No funky smell at all. I've not used it yet, so I'll know more when I do. All I have done is wash it with hand soap twice and let it alone to dry.

I like it, but I'll have to use it to see how much, or how it compares.

Happy shaves,

Jim

Mine is the two band finest. I believe it's either a bulb or hybrid. If I like it I plan on ordering a couple of others (different ones) that they sell. Thanks for the info.
