That butterscotch is beautiful and the side piece makes the shot. Well done.

That may well be the first toy I ever had. I was born in 1953 in Savannah, GA while my dad was stationed at Hunter AFB. I think my parents picked up the hobo in Chattanooga on a road trip to or from their home in Republic County (north central), KS.

Beautiful shot!! Is that M7 brand new, or just used sparingly?

I took the photo a couple years ago. Picked up the brush barely used shortly before that. It's been used a lot more since then. It's one of my very favorites.

Beautiful brush, Ken. That's definitely one of the best colors for the M7, IMO. Blush

I'd risk it and say it's not new, judging by the bloom of the knot.

Beautiful Ken!

Respect to a true original and perhaps one of the most practical handles ever designed.

This was one of the first M7 images I ever saw, really caught my attention and gave me the bug to start acquiring M7 types. Thanks for posting over here Ken... incredible share on how hobo toy, amazing you've had it this long and very good condition.

I think Simpsons does a wonderful job at emulating the highly sought after color profile of antique shaving brushes - Butterscotch Biggrin
