A personal fave is Omega #80005.
But if you can't afford that, a Custom Shavemac Finest falls into the same price range as a Rooney 1/1 Super Silvertip. Plus you get to build your own brush, so to speak. Just email Bernd at Shavemac with the handle type and brush dimensions you want.Shavemac Custom D01 all the way, such a luxurious feeling on my face
I guess I walked into the wrong thread.
Outside of Rooney, how about a Simpson X2L Colonel? Similar in size to a 3/1, and not a Rooney.
