The best shaving brush packaging...

[Image: bBwClGu.png]

I thought Kent had the most enviable shaving brush packaging...

But now I think Vie Long has trumped them...

Please share examples of remarkable brush presentation and packaging here...

That black container in the top picture looks great. It looks like the excellent boxes made by Pelican or Otter.

Now if only Vie-Long could get the logo stamp to last longer than a few uses before half the logo smudges off... I would just prefer them to me unmarked.

My favorite is from Lee Sabini, bubble wrap in a mail envelope. I'm not paying for packaging I'll never use nor likely even see again once the brush is unwrapped.

That's beautiful. I'm not one to keep packaging around but I could make an exception.

Well, some may say packaging seems impractical (I know, I have to store the things). But it is a nice touch. I keep all of my "more expensive" brushes packaging. Whether it raises the price of the brush is another story.

Wiborg has a very nice presentation, and im not sure if it was an "introductory" type thing, but it does get notice for their attention to detail. Their brushes are top quality, hand made, and from what I can tell, below the cost of anything comparable in the two band or above, knot world - for the size. Id like to get the Manchurian, if possible- just to check one out.

I ordered 2 more and they will be here tomorrow ( a taller one and another color). I cant wait!

BTW....Ive used this one about 12-15 times.

My favourite remains the Kent package; elegant without being ostentatious.

I find those containers very beautifull, but... personally dont give any importance to them.

For me its just something to make the brush expensier, occupy space and we can't even put the brush back in those, for they'll be wet and can rotten. It's a novelty, with all due respect.

But hey, if one likes then, and dont mind with these issues, they're a beauty.
