Up for sale are three shaving brushes which I have restored.  All three have a wonderful Silvertip knot with zero scritch and are set at a depth I chose to favor face lathering, which they excel at.  None of them are shedders, nor do they have any other issues, they just need a new home.  The knots were set with silicone adhesive and should any problems ever arise I will repair the brush for free, but I have been using this method for several years without issue.  Paypal and US 1st class Shipping included in price, International buyers to pay actual shipping cost.

From L to R:

Cable Car Clothiers (by Simpson) Duke 3 - The handle has some beautiful wear and patina which I chose not to restore.  A progressive (and cautious) wet sanding around the base could really bring this brush back to like new, but I like it the way it is.  Knot measures 25mm in diameter with a 48mm loft.  $55 traded

Butterscotch Made Rite 500PB - One of the most ergonomic brushes to face lather with, has the original engraving on the bottom.  Knot measures 24x48mm.  $30 SOLD

Simms Rajan - A beautiful faux ivory grain resin over a greenish acrylic base.  Knot measures 23x50mm $30 SOLD

Thanks for posting the photo of the Simms Rajah. With the greenish acrylic base it is a variation I had not seen before, mine is solid colour. Nice brushes GLWTS.

Thank you,  the Made Rite and Simms both have knots from a fellow named Angel Jian, who sells occasionally on aliexpress.  The Duke utilizes a Silvertip knot from Virginia Sheng.
