Looking to TRADE for a Fatboy or Slim. 
--------------------------------------------------------------

I'm trying to clear out some brushes and other stuff. Here are some of the brushes. I will have some cheaper ones as well, but I'll list them as starter kits in a later post. 

NOTES:
1) All dimensions are approximate and are measured for the brush listed here. These are not generic specs. Knot width is measured at the lip of the handle. 
2) None of these brushes shed at all, but that can change, so take that with  grain of salt. 
3) Shipping in the US is included in the price. 

Finally, please let me know if any of my prices are way out of line. Thanks. 

Please PM me if you have any questions. Payment is to be by PayPal. 

-------------------------------------------------------

1) Rooney Butterscotch + WITHDRAWN!!

2) Butterscotch Kent C.P.3C + TGN Finest  - $35 Shipped in the US

This is another wonderful butterscotch brush. This is a vintage Kent C.P.3C. Originally a Pure badger hair brush. The knot has been replaced with a TGN Finest knot. I adjusted the loft, so that the brush is comfortable to use and holds a lot of lather. The butterscotch handle is lovely, and the taper makes it very comfortable to hold and use. It comes with the original box (which is in bad shape) and the original instructions. 

The knot can be easily steamed out and reset by you to whatever loft you like. 

Specs:

Handle - h=45 mm, dia=25 mm at base
Knot - Width=16 mm, loft=45 mm

7) Ever-Ready Lucite with TGN Finest Knot - $55 Shipped in the US

This is a lovely, and LARGE brush (at least for me). It is a vintage Ever-Ready Lucite handle with a nice square-tapered shape. The handle has been set with a lovely, large TGN Finest knot, and the overall feeling is one of luxury and huge size. There is some crazing at the cup of the handle. See pics. 

Specs:

Handle - h=50 mm, dia=37 mm at base
Knot - Width=32 mm, loft=60 mm

SOLD ITEMS:



SOLD!! 1) Butterscotch Hoffritz (Simpson) Chubby 2 Best - $200 shipped in the US


This is one of those brushes I never thought I'd sell, as it's amazing. It is a vintage butterscotch Chubby. Brand is Hoffritz, but as we all know, these were made by Simpsons for them. The butterscotch handle is lovely, with a glowing even tone. The hair grade is Best, but this is softer than any current Simpsons hair offering. It has plenty of backbone because it is so dense. The knot has a fan profile. No shedding issues. 

Specs:
Handle - h=46 mm, dia=40 mm at base
Knot - Width=28 mm, loft=45 mm

SOLD!! 4) Semogue 2012 SOC - Boar/Badger mix - $45 shipped US


This is a well-known brush - The Semogue SOC from 2012. It has a wonderful boar/badger knot, and it is just a superb brush. Not much to say here, except that this is one of the best brushes ever made (in my opinion). Lovely comfortable handle, excellent knot and great face-feel. 

Specs:

Handle - h=60 mm, dia=35 mm at base
Knot - Width=24 mm, loft=53 mm

SOLD 5) Simpsons Chubby 1 Best - $85 shipped US

Not much needs to be said about this brush. It's made by one of the most well-respected brush companies. It is a great brush, and it shows it. It does everything well. It comes with the original box. 

Specs:


Handle - h=45 mm, 
Knot - Width=27 mm, loft=50 mm

SOLD!! 3) Rudy Vey brush with wooden handle + Vulfix knot - Face lathering - $45 Shipped in US


This is a lovely brush made by Rudy Vey, but it has a flaw (noted below). The handle is made of some sort of rainbow coloured wood, and is very comfortable. The knot is offset at an angle to aid face-lathering. You can also use for bowl-lathering, of course. The knot is marvelous, and is one of the (no longer available) TGN UK Silvertip Badger knots, which were made by Vulfix/Simpsons. This feels just like a Chubby. The knot is round, but looks a bit squished in the pics as it was laying on its side for a few weeks. 

The flaw is clear in the pics. The wood had a 'knot' that started to crack, so the handle was fixed with a very strong epoxy. It is completely stable, of course. 

Specs:


Handle - h=53 mm, dia=35 mm at base
Knot - Width=26 mm, loft=46 mm

SOLD ELSEWHERE!! 6) Simpsons Classic 2 Best - $70 Shipped in the US


This is another beauty of a brush. It is just a tiny bit smaller than the Chubby, but is every bit as great to use. Nice and compact. Excellent tips and backbone. 

Specs:

Handle - h=40 mm
Knot - Width=23 mm, loft=44 mm

Thank goodness someone bought the Hoffritz, as it was killing me to look at it knowing that I can't spend that kind of money just now.

Fabulous brush. I have the 103 version of this Simpson/Hoffritz. Truly an amazing luxury.

Whoever purchased this beauty is in for a rare treat.

GLWTS on the other brushes.

A final price drop on these brushes. Smile

----------------

TRADE POSSIBILITY: I have decided that not having a Gillette Adjustable in the den is unacceptable, so I'd like to pick up a FatBoy or Slim. PM me if you want to trade. One note: the prices listed for the brushes here are for sales. Trade value will differ slightly from this.
