Presents as new .. well, almost as new .. kind of new actually.

VB Finest 2-band badger brush with hand-turned faux ivory handle.
24mm x 55mm

This beautiful specimen is from the first batch released by Vintage Blades in 2012.

Brush has never been used to shave with, and has been test lathered only.
It was inadvertently dropped in a toilet bowl once, but was quickly retrieved, and then carefully air dried inside the original box with lid on to ensure safekeeping.
Handle was wiped clean with a cotton t-shirt.

Tips are still somewhat soft with a bit of a crunch overall and knot integrity seems to be fine for the most part.
Slight discoloration of tips is noted, however this is purely cosmetic.

Price : $35 firm (this is what I paid)


CONUS preferred .. PM me if you live in a less desirable place, and I will decide if you're worthy
Paypal preferred .. PM me with other payment options, and I will decide if you're worthy

Will you consider a trade for used blades? None of them used more than 5 times. Feathers, GSB, Astras, Gillette yellows . I can also throw in some new unused Derbys if you prefer something less sharp.

I'm more interested in the used blades actually for trade .. do they still have the numbers on them .. this is crucial.

Mine have numbers Ravi, I'm breaking the top off my bank now. Will get total count asap. Just to be clear there is a mix of both single and double edge blades.

Of course. These would be excellent candidates for replating or can be used as is.

Before I pull the trigger, can you confirm the size of the cotton T shirt used.  I know you're asking yourself "why the size and not the color" but like the guys at the carwash say " its colder outside than at night time".

3XL .. 100% cotton .. it's an old t-shirt, but serves well.
I use it all the time to wipe the base of my toilet.

OK, no extra cost .. I'll run the brush through a cycle in my dishwasher .. it's all good!
