I just got this brush this week (from this BST). Its a beautiful brush and the handle is everything you'd expect from an artisan. When I received the brush it still had a very very very faint badger smell. As per the previous owner, the brush has not been used much. From the initial test lather I suspected it wouldn't be for me. It ahs a little too much back bone for my tastes. I like 2-bands with a little more loft (pillowy). I gave it one test lather and used it twice. Well no sense in keeping it since I know I am not going to fully enjoy it.

Specs: Knot 26mm with 53mm loft



Asking $125 Shipped CONUS (what I paid). ***Adding one free soap, you can pick from one of the 3 listed.
Retail per previous owner $202.80

Soaps to choose from:
Mikes Hungarian Lavender- new/unused
B&M Latha lavender- new/unused
RazoRock ABCBA- 100 grams piece cut from new/unused block in a new tin. NOTE box not included, only for picture

Lol!! It is a lovely brush, but the knot(loft) is not for me. No sense in holding on to it if I already know that. Surprising the difference 5mm makes.

First time holding a Doug Korn and the handle lives up to his reputation.
