This brush is advertised as being particularly designed for bowl lathering. It has lots of backbone. I bought it after reading a post about horse hair brushes on shavenook to give it a try. It was used twice. I'm selling it for $19 including USPS priority mail shipping in the USA, which is half of its list purchase price. Paypal  (I bought another badger after trying it but you may like it.)

May I please inquire as to why you fund that it did not suit you?
I have some curiosity about these brushes, and it's always good to know more.

While it produced a creamy lather it didn't whip up as much air in the lather as I would have wished for. It's not bad...just different, so I've labelled it as a "learning experience." I've since purchased a Simpson Tulip 3, which is of course a completely different type of brush...You could say that I'm still at the stage in my wet shaving experience where I'm experimenting. I'm glad to have tried all the major types of brushes (horse hair, badger, boar, synthetic) but decided not to keep the horse hair because I didn't think I'd use it much. I hope that helps.

Click to see the Page about it on bullgooseshaving for more information and a really nice review of the brush. I'm not sure about the model number but there is tag on the bottom of the box that reads REF. BG13071.
