Hello Gentlemen of The Shave Nook!  Smile

I hope you are all doing well, in good health and enjoying your shaves. In case you wanted to try out a new brush, these are some of the nicer brushes that I am needing to let go and find a new home. I am officially moving out on my own and uprooting myself from all things comfortable and familiar. So  I am downsizing the den and saving up money for rent and food. Anyways, I will always love brushes and can only say that I take care of the brushes I own like children. They get used with care and finesse along with getting used with distilled water, and thoroughly and gently cleaned and dried every time.

I have three brushes and price includes shipping conus. Read the description of what my experience is with each brush along with all the other details.

Simpson Manchurian knot in Grosvenor handle-Bought for $140 here on TSN-Comes with Red Simpson box, tissue and Simpson instruction insert. STILL AVAILABLE
Diameter-22mm
Loft-53mm
Bloom Width-66mm
Canopy Height-16mm

I really love the Simpson Manchurians and this one is one of my favorites. It has excellent flow through as well as very soft tips. You can see the clumping and to my skin, it is no scratch or scrub. But nice back bone that allows you to push a bit into the knot and remains strong before splaying a bit. Nice with both the circular and painting strokes. Very nice brush. I will sell it for $130 and if you would like a Semogue 610 (brand new) I can throw that in if you would like it or gift it to a friend to start wet shaving.

Vintage Plisson Badger in Horn Handle-Bought for $130 here on TSN-Comes in a clear screw top travel brush tube with knot dimensions labeled on top. SOLD 
Diameter-21.5mm
Loft-58mm
Bloom Width-69mm
Canopy Height-27mm

This is one that I will later regret going. This makes face lathering so make fun. The lather stays at the tips of the knot and does well with both pressing and testing the backbone onto the face. It is a tall lofted brush but is also very bulby. It also paints the lather on in an incredible, wonderful way. This is probably my favorite of every Plisson I have tried, both current and vintage stock. It does have some scrub which I usually can not tolerate but this was a definite winner. The handle is not only easy to hold and easy to maneuver but I think it is beautiful. I will sell it for $115 and if you would like a Semogue 610 (brand new) I can throw that in if you would like it or gift it to a friend to start wet shaving.

Yes. The bigger Beehive is already SPF. But they are all excellent brushes. Thanks for your comment. Cheers!

The Beehive is 25/26mm by 57mm. Definitely top notch hair, very well sorted, not the typical high lofted Plisson. This one has serious backbone. But as said above, SPF.

Sounds like an awesome brush. Good luck with the rest of the sale

Much appreciated. Thanks. Here is a link if you want to see one of our members try it out. FYI this is not a promotion to a wet shaves YT channel but Eric is a part of the TSN family.

I can offer to lower the price to $110 on the Grosvenor and offer along with a unused Tub of Xpec scented. I got it when the recent direct batch available in N. America a couple of years ago.
