I have for sale or trade a Morris & Forndran Beehive 24mm Blonde Badger. The brush is in excellent condition and has been used lightly.

I am only interested in high end/Unobtainium razors and brushes.

This brush was purchased from the BST here on TSN and the exchange rate translated to £140 at the time, plus shipping. International shipping from the UK is approximately £15. I will therefore sell the brush for £155 including worldwide shipping.

*** Final reduction to £145***

Thanks for looking.

Could someone with more M&F experience help me? This looks like a low lofted three band to me. My finest and blonde M&F do not look like this but maybe I'm mistaken?

The handle is killer.

Yes. 2-band refers to the thickness of the middle band more so than it does the number of visible bands you can see popping out of the handle. The reason why it is called 2-band is because the middle band is so thick that you can not normally see the bottom band because it is buried in the handle. However, this is not always the case, and the bottom band can be visible sometimes. This brush does have a very thick middle band and appears to be 2-band. Hope this will help you.

While I don't know as much as some people have forgotten about brushes, I have a few 2 band badgers and agree with nsmalls. The bottom of the hair always has another lighter colored part. The whole lighter part may or may not be entirely hiding out of sight in the handle. Doesn't matter to how it's generally referred to in my limited experience.

Most of these are 2 bands on the right and I can see the lighter band on a lot of them too. Compared to "best" badger on the very left or say a silvertip brush it's easy to see the difference.

3 band brushes have a much narrower dark band between the handle and the tips. Being able to see a third band isn't a problem for me. Having that dark portion taking up more than a thin ring is a tell tale sign that suggests certain characteristics that some people like me really like.
