I'm looking for a 2XL (preferably in 2 Band) but I've only found one vendor and they are out of stock. A little help?

Did you try Vintage Blades? I bought a Rooney from them about a year ago.

I usually try Vintage Blades or Classic Shaving for a Rooney. Fendrihan also carries Rooney but I don't recall if they stock the XL brushes.

In Canada I know of 2 vendors which stock Rooney, Fendrihan and Menessentials. I don't know if this is the brush you're looking for, but they both have in stock the Heritage Stubby 3 in Super Silvertip.

@OP.

I think you'll discover that the Rooney two bands are out of stock everywhere and out of production.

To acquire one, I suggest a WTB or contact Lee for a M&F.

Huh, strange. I see that Morris & Forndran is also listed as dissolved when I searched on Lee Sabini. I have no idea if the information is accurate or its implications. However, since many individuals have procured Rooney and M&F brushes since late 2013, my only advice would be caveat emptor. This advice would similarly apply to many online vendors.

I can barely understand US corporate filings, but it looks like its still an active company:

http://data.companieshouse.gov.uk/doc/company/06615558

However, it does say "proposal to strike off" which looks like it means that its proposal to dissolve. But that could mean that it is dissolving the company overall to just to a non-trading status.

What credibility does that site actually have? I can't even find Vulfix or Simpson on it. Seems in poor taste to start or feed a rumor about a competitor due to a non-verified, third party web search. Undecided

Which one, the one that Simpson1919 cited, or mine? Mine is the actual UK government corporations/companies site. I just want to make certain that I always do my best to cite to any official or government site in matters like these (its the lawyer in me).

Vintage Blades, Classic Shaving and Fendrihan are the only dealers that I know of. But it has been about a year since
I have seen any of them having a 2 band in stock. I have bought 3 Ronney Heritage brushes from Fendrihan, but they have all
been 3 band. Good luck on your search!

No problem.

I think the issue behind whether Rooney has filed for dissolution or not is whether if one orders a Rooney will that person receive satisfactory customer service. Since the "first line" of customer service is the vendor, all the vendors I've seen carry Rooneys are first-rate so if it was me (and soon it might!) I would not be concerned.
