FS: Vie Long Epsilon Duo, 2-band & 3-Band Silvertip

Neither have ever been used.

2-Bander: Vie Long Epsilon old Stock much sturdier handle in black with engraving at the bottom and engraved logo in 2-band Super badger, 55 mm loft and 27-28 mm knot in a wonderful bulb shape.

3-Bander: Vie Long Epsilon new stock faux horn 3-Band Silvertip, 50 mm loft and 27-28 mm knot in an also fasntastic beautiful bulb shaped knot.

Reason I sell these two beauties, well......I'm trying to cut my badger collection down into 20 brushes, so these two will unfortunately have to go, I feel I'm already regretting it though to be quite honest.

NO TRADES, please !

Price for both shipped to either US, Canada or Europe: $185

Individual priced (you can see I'm hoping to sell them bundled  Wink )

2-Bander: $130, shipped
3-Bander: $110, shipped

Erik made me realize this (Mr_Smartepants)

He made the first offer here, and did it this way:

I will buy the brushes from you, but I think you are making a mistake by selling them.
I will purchase the brushes from you, but only ofter you have tested both brushes.

I will now withdraw this sales add, and wait until I get my verdict down.

Thanks  Smile

Hi Claus,

What is the difference between the two band Vie-Long knots and the 3 band? I have a VL silvertip but it's a bit too scrubby for my tastes but I love the density of it.

The 2-band is denser in feel and has more scrub.

The 3-band is softer.

If you find the 3-band has too much scrub, run away from the 2-Band IMHO

But It also depends on the loft and density of the 3-band brush.

What Vie Long 3-band did you own ?

I have owned 10-12 Vie Long  badgers, so I know a little bit about thenm.

I have always said, and I stand by that, that Vie Long is the sleeper brand of badger brushes.
They are excellent quality brushes, almost on par with Simpson, M&F (Prior to 2014) and Shavemac.
