Gentlemen,
This is the Rooney Heritage "Emillion" size 2, a sweet two-band super silvertip that is a wonder for both face and bowl lathering. It has a 25 mm knot set to a 50 mm loft and tucked in a 59 mm handle. With solid backbone and soft tips, the brush will especially please those who like a long handle on their brush. The brush is barely used, because suddenly I like a brush with a shorter handle. The price is $125 shipped U.S. Overseas shipping is a wee bit extra. Paypal is fine. No trades, please. Thanks.

The Emillion is one of the finest designed handles. If this is one of the gel-tip Heritage badgers from several years ago, it compares favorably with the Rooney Finest. Obie is a gentleman to deal with.

Some of the tips appear to be curled in the first two photos ... leading me to believe this knot likely has gel-type characteristics. Obie can clarify ...

I have to disagree with you, they couldn't be more different from one another. Finests are soft when dry and stiff when wet. The gel tips batch is rough when dry and soft when wet.

Gentlemen,

Thank you for the kind words.

These do feel gel-like tips. It's a wonderful brush, but I must trim the shave den of everything, including straight razors, DE razors and brushes.

The main reason for the trimming is because I need the funds for the promotion of my novel, due out in the next couple months. I'll need the funds for travel to do readings and book signings.

Ah, the life of a poor writer. Oy!

Stay well,
Obie

Thank you, Johnny. That's one of the places I will definitely keep in mind, and will inform the publicity department. Stay tuned.

Gentlemen,
The brush sold. Thank you all.
Stay well,
Obie
