Selling two brushes today. Neither has shed a single hair during the times I have used them. Please excuse the horrible cell phone+bad lighting pics. I will try again tomorrow.

1. Rudy Vey faux Ivory with TGN knot. This must be an older Rudy Vey as it does not have the signature RV on the bottom.  I purchased this brush from a reputable member on this very site, and there is no reason to believe that this brush is not a RV (as it was sold to me). The handle is beautiful and you can really tell the craftsmanship just by holding it. Nice 2 band backbone with soft tips.

$45 each Shipped CONUS or $85 for both

I will ship Monday June 15th the latest. More than likely this Friday, but we'll say Monday just in case.

Specs:
TGN Finest 26mm by 50mm
Handle measures 58mm
Total height 108mm

Specs:
24mm by 52mm

#1 is a Bob Quinn/Elite Razor handle. Pretty certain about that, but I certainly could be wrong as well. Bob usually leaves that tell-tale concave divot in the bottom.

I don't know Bob Quinns work as well as others, but it doesn't look like a RV to me.

The first brush looks like a Bob Quinn E7.

New Forest is pending funds.

 

I pm'ed the member who I purchased the "RV" brush and he told me that he also picked it up on the BST. He mentioned that he also believes that it may be a Bob Quinn handle. He has had a few of Bob's brushes and recognizes the concave indention as mentioned in a previous response (Shamm). I did a little research and it does look like a Bob Quinn E7 handle. As I did not purchase directly from the artisan, and I am not selling it for a huge amount of $$$$, it is not worth consulting either artisan to find out the maker of the handle. I will simply state that it is a beautfiul custom handle with a nice dense 2 band knot.


New Forest sold. I am withdrawing the other brush. I think I am going to make room by putting together a little starter kit with a Whipped Dog brush instead. I think I am going to try to reknot this handle or simply set the loft a little higher. Wish me luck as this is going to be my first reknot. Smile
