I got this Rubberset shaving brush for Christmas. My wife's grandparents owned a paint company after WWII and received this from their Rubberset rep. It is a boar bristle brush and the bristles are set in rubber. They made paint brushes in the same manner. It has never been used and is in the original packaging. How sweet is that? I can't find anything else on Canadian manufactured shaving brushes. I hope to revive the tradition!

So that's what they look like new? Looks good! I purchased one of those for a restore off Ebay...the knot is in terrible condition.

As long as your into Canadian made brushes. I also have A Nyal, Service Drug Store brush that's Canadian made too. Unfortunately, I forgot it in the car over night at -20 degrees and it cracked.
