I was surprised today when I visited Classic Shaving on a whim and found a Rooney being sold with a handle style that I'd never seen before. Anyone know if this is indeed a new style or perhaps NOS?

That is an interesting-looking handle. I have never seen one like it in the Rooney name, but I, also, haven't had that many Rooney brushes. Biggrin

The script logo definitely points to it being of modern manufacture.  Very interesting, but I wouldn't buy a Pure Badger unless I was planning on reknotting it immediately.

Have to agree....I tried a Rooney Pure and I'm lucky my face still has skin.

NOS, according to CS. These may date back to around 2011 when the script logo was introduced.

Good call. I also see a similarity to the vintage Redleaf E3 in Dave's post here: http://shavenook.com/thread-updated-i-ma...#pid524508
