Allegedly, Rooney has lost the T&H contract and will be supplied in the future by another manufacturer... As I am a big fan of Rooney brushes (both 2 and 3 Band) and especially the T&H variety, I thought it would be a good idea to secure another one before they are all gone...

So I got myself the Style 1 - Large in White variety (below out of the box). It is joining its comrades - both T&H and Rooney branded... Now I am done - for now ... Biggrin

I just got asked, if I am sure, it is Rooney made and not Vulfix. Now, I have no proof that it is Rooney made. However, it came in the same red box as Rooneys from Vintage Blades arrive and the handle looks identical to my Rooney 1/1. Below bloom front and backside.

Maybe we will never know...Cool

Hi

Beautiful shaving brush to add to your stable of other beauties...

I'm currently waiting impatiently to pull the trigger on this one, Truefitt & Hill Style 1 Size Medium Silvertip Badger - imitation Ivory Horn

Take care, Mike

Very nice brush. I recently purchased the same brush in Ivory. They're an excellent price with The Shave Nook discount. I was also concerned with future availability of these brushes. Maybe I need to add the white one also.

Used it today... Luxuriously soft 3 band brush (almost Thäter soft)... Different than I thought not too bug on the face despite a significant bloom. Definitely a keeper!!

Beautiful brush! To my relatively untrained eyes, it sure looks like a Rooney. Smile

One of my favorite brushes is a Truefitt & Hill 3/2 in Horn. Incredibly soft against the face, nice density/flow-through and great ergonomic handle.

I agree with Ravi, it sure looks like a Rooney to me. Wink
