I had Oscar at Vie-Long make another batch of Limited Edition Beehive brushes for me. These brushes will have the same great performance as the last batch with one cosmetic improvement (at least in my opinion). I had Oscar move the Vie-Long logo to the butt of the handle to prevent it from rubbing off (it has been pl;aced over the ridges before). In addition, these brushes do not have a model number on the handle -it is a cleaner look.

My first box arrived today with the natural horse and the horse/badger mixed beehives. The silvertip brushes should be here any day now.

The Silvertip Beehives arrived today. These brushes are excellent. The hair used is premium silvertip badger that compares favorably to any of the high end makers and they are overstuffed. As a result, they have a very soft face feel, excellent backbone and excellent flow through.

The handles are lathed from a heavy resin and the knots are hand tied. At $135 per brush, they are an excellent deal.

I've always wanted one of these brushes, but don't like a lot of scritch. How does the mixed knot feel on the face? Anyone share their experiences?

The scritchiest brush I have that I like is probably the Mighty Midget Mixed.

The next 11 customers to order a Vie-Long Beehive in Silvertip will receive a nice gift. While I cannot promise which gift you will receive, it will be one of the ones in the attached photo. Someone will receive Castle Forbes shave cream, someone will receive Castle Forbes Aftershave balm etc. Are you feeling lucky?
