Here we have a pre June 11' Blonde Badger bulbous beast. Some of the best hair Lee has ever offered when Rooney Heritage=Blonde Badger, and knots this size from M&F just can't be had anymore. The handle is the gorgeous ivory grain Lee had stocked in those earlier years of true bespoke M&F fodder.
Specs are 33mm knot, 52mm loft, 98mm total height per my calipers. No shedding, used a total of 20 or less times at least (original owner used about a dozen shaves from new, I used about 5 times).

What I want to trade for: Simpson M7 2 band SiLVERTiP or other special bespoke Simpson 2 band SiLVERTiP in something other than fake butterscotch. I am looking for the ivory grained stuff especially.

Thanks for looking, no purchase offers on the M&F please.

I bought a 32mm brush from Lee Christmas 2013.

I don't think its funny to spread misinformation. Otherwise I wouldn't have posted. I can't speak on behalf of Lee but I have bought two different brushes from him in that past year that were greater than 30mm. The brush should be able to speak for itself, and it does for the most part. I wish OP the best of luck with his trade.

Not to get involved in the " whose got a bigger -----" competition. Oh well I will lol. I have in the last 4 months bought 3 brushes from Lee - in very special rare hair - two are 33/34mm and one is 35mm. To be fair Lee assures me these do come up often.

Personally I would suggested that the handle is more rare - Lee confirms the Ivory stripe doesn't exist anymore ( I'm sure someone will come along and correct me - so my opinion is based on the information I have by the maker)

Do I win now Smile

By the way would to buy that brush lol
