First up is a Savile Row 3118 shaving brush in exquisite finest silvertip badger. Nothing whatsoever wrong with the brush, except slightly miffed printing on a couple letters, which was the case on day 1. This is hands-down the best brush I've used for face-lathering, for the money, out of a ton of Rooney, Simpson, Shavemac, etc. - basically every model offered almost, I've tried Smile . The combination of silky soft tips, nice backbone, and *excellent* flow through make it one of a kind. The small knot makes this little brush a racecar on your face - lather everywhere you want it, and nowhere you don't. If I were keeping any natural hair brushes, this would be the only ond I'd ever keep (and have kept), but sadly I'm not (philosophical reasons). Goes for $85+tx on qedusa.com, here for $75 now $69 shipped in the US **** GONE

Next up is a soap/cream lot, containing 4x DR Harris Arlington shaving soap refills (all unused or test lathered once, this is my absolute favorite shaving soap, the combo of dark fern and bright citrus, with great lather), 3x Palmolive Classic shaving cream tubes (UK, brand new, the best value cream out there), 1x Valobra shaving soap stick (new, nice earthy soapy scent, great skin care), 1x NOS Tallow Erasmic shaving soap stick (new old stock from back in 2008 or 2009, great stick). These are all my absolute favorite soap/cream products, I just have way too much stuff right now and need to clear some out. $90 now $85 now $80 shipped in the US.

If you're buying one of the other items, I've got mostly Astra SP blades I could throw in for minimal extra cost. 32 Astra SP, 7 Gillette 7OC yellow, 12 Gillette 7 OC black, 10 NOS Wilkinson Super Sword Edge UK, 30 NOS Wilkinson Chromium UK, 8 NOS Gillette Azul Aco Inox Brazil, 7 Super Iridium Extra Stainless, 7 US Personna Med Prep Hospital Use, 3 Israeli Super Platinum Personna Blue, and 10 Gillette Wilkinson India

Things I'd like in partial trades would be NOS Gillette Platinum or Super Silver or Bleue Extra blades in dispenser, Plisson Synthetic brush in excellent condition, and possibly a GIllette 40s Style Super speed or Gillette slim adjustable in excellent condition.

You might want to consider indicating the approximate dimensions of the knot and handle for those that are not familiar with the brush.
Good luck.Smile

Right you are Smile - sorry about that folks. It's an 18mm knot, but it's a really awesome size for face lathering. It is NOT too small. Works fine for bowl lathering too. It's a bulb shape, and the loft is approximately 48-50mm. The handle is really comfortable, with that wider area at the base.

Best regards

This little brush created quite a (positive) sensation on the forums a few years back.

Good luck with the sale!

Thanks Murray, yes it really is a great little brush. If I weren't switching to a synthetic for non performance reasons it's the only one I'd want to keep. A quick Google search (not sure if it's kosher to link to other forums) will get you loads of positive reviews on this brush

Again, happy to talk about partial trades if someone isn't interested in the whole lot, or whatnot

Best regards

Now open to splitting the lot. Alternately if you buy the lot, I'll throw in a 30-40 blade sampler for FREE with lots of good ones
