Gentlemen :

Im happy to announced the Semogue LE shaving brush for The Shave Nook.

This brush would have a 22 mm knot and 52 mm loft,and a blend of finest badger hair (new type) and 90% tops boar hair,so it would be like the famous Caravela brush,but with a 22 mm knot,instead of 24mm.

Also the handle used in this brush is a "vintage one",not longer in production,so we have "rescued" for this project.

Only 100 brushes would be made,numbered and will have the following engraving on the handle base :

The Shave Nook
Semogue
1/100 2012

Price for this brush would be around 30 something euros and would be available in the next couple weeks at The Vintage Scent

We would like to thank Mr Gomes for the work he has done,"rescuing" this old acrylic vintage handle and Leon for helping us to have this brush.

Very nice brush!
Will the boar/badger mix be the same percentage as the Caravela (can't remember what that is offhand--is it 50% of each?), and will the badger/boar hair be comparable to the Caravela?
Inquiring minds want to know! Tongue

Wow what a beauty. I'd love to get #99 to match my Carvela.
Who specifically can we request a # from?

Cheers on a beautiful selection!!

Gentlemen -

You cannot reserve numbers on this brush. You get whatever Vintage Scent sends you.

Please do not request numbers unless Teiste indicates that you can.

Thanks.

No...brushes will be selected randomly. Requesting numbers poses an undue burden on the vendor. Sorry.
