I regret having to sell some of my favorite badger brushes, as I find myself using synthetics almost exclusively. All brushes are very lightly used, less than ten times each, and have been well cared for. Prices included shipping CONUS, overseas shipping extra.

1. Zen Shave Rusticated Desert Ironwood WSP 26mm HMW, $130. This large handled brush fits my large hands perfectly. SOLD

2. Zen Shave Amboyna Burl WSP 26mm ED 2Banded HMW, $115. The workmanship on both of these handles is outstanding. SOLD.

3. A beautiful Rod Neep (Pens of the Forest) Afzelia Burl 28mm Extra Dense Silvertip, $125. Rod's work doesn't require an explanation, and this large, extra-dense, soft knot will bowl or face lather with the best of them.

4. Rod Neep Golden Teak Burl 24 mm Manchurian 2 Band Badger set to 52mm, $115. This brush is a joy to look at, and a joy to face lather with. SOLD.

5. Rubberset 400 WSP 26mm HMW. The handle is about 85-90% restored. It can be used as is, but if you want it mirror shiny without blemishes, another light sanding and a polishing will get you there. $150 (the knot alone sells for $120 on the WSP site). REDUCED, now $135. SOLD.

I have too many nice razors, and don't get to use many of them as often as I should. They are deserving of a new home. These have been professionally honed and are shave ready.

1. Ern Ator 5/8 in good to very good condition, very minor spotting, $115. SOLD. The Ator is a very sought after razor, and it's often difficult to find one in good condition.

2. Henckels Friodur 8/8 Scalloped Back Spanish Point INOX, with beautiful Blue Marble Acrylic scales. I purchased this razor recently from the Shaving Shop in NOS condition. I have only shaved with it once since it was professionally honed. For some reason, I don't like 8/8 full hollow INOX razors, and seem to prefer 1/4 hollow blades in my larger razors. Purchased for $309 a couple of months ago, will sell for $250 shipped. Reduced, now $225.

3. Antelope Diamond Steel 11/16 full hollow ground, imitation wood scales. This is a nice little shaver from Germany, in very good condition for $85. (The streaking on the blade in the second photo is a reflection). SOLD.

4. This is a stunning Red Point 5/8 hollow ground, made in Solingen, Germany by Anton Wingen, Jr., in superb condition, 3-pin celluloid scales with silver bolsters, and the company emblem in silver inlay. This is considered one of the best shaving razors. I purchased it NOS, then had it professionally honed, and have shaved with it only a handful of times. $175. REDUCED, Now $155.

5. This is my most beautiful razor, an F.W. Engels Perfection 8/8 full hollow ground. It's a wonderful shaver, but I just prefer 1/4 hollow ground for my 7/8 and 8/8 razors. It's not perfect, but you'll be hard pressed to find another in this condition. $225.

Hey Bravado, if you buy #2, I'll buy #1.

Just seeing these beauties on this site is killing me - little voice running in the background all morning - "go buy that brush, okok, before someone else rips it out of your covetous, sweaty fingers". Oh my!
