For sale in like-new condition this large-sized shaving brush.

[Image: QX1L3451_zps0tdtw4zz.jpg]

Originally purchased by myself at the ToOBS store in Jermyn St., London, in November 2011.
Used only twice since then (one test lather and one shave).

This brush is handmade in England for Taylor's of Old Bond Street (most likely by Simpsons - the Super hair knot certainly feels like a Simpsons one).
It currently retails for GBP145 in the U.K. and $272 in the U.S.

Here next to an Omega Pro No. 106.

Dimensions of the actual brush are (all approx. as measured by myself):

Handle height: 76mm;
Handle dia.: 40mm (outer);
Knot size: 31mm;
Loft length: 59mm;
Weight: 4.8 oz.

This is a wonderful, sturdy, solid handmade brush that has a lovely Super hair knot installed.
The backbone is quite weak, which makes it a brush quite more tailored to bowl latherers (hence the reason I am letting this beauty go).

Seen it selling new in the U.S. for $199.95; Yours for $100 $89 shipped (PayPal).

I am located in Athens, Greece and shall ship via registered/signed-for service. Brush original box has been misplaced.
Plenty of solid references on these and other boards.
Thank you for viewing and thank you TSN.

Luxury indeed; heavy, sturdy handled that can be re-knotted (although don't forget this is probably a Simpsons handmade Super knot).

Price drop to $89.
