FS/T: Brushes (M&F set & custom R400)

My brushes are multiplying like tribbles and I'm having a bit of a cashflow problem so some of the more pricey collectible brushes need to go first.
For trades, I'm looking for a BBS-1 or Wolfman DC/OC head or WRH7 handle.
Detailed photos of varying angles available upon request.  All payments are requested by PayPal.  First PM does not secure a sale; I'll give preference to a buyer selecting more than one brush.
First up, a pair of faux-ivory M&F "Stubby" (2xl?) brushes with Lee Sabini 'Finest' hair.  One fan shaped, one bulb shaped.  Both are fantastic, no shedding or other damage.
Both are 28mm with 50mm loft.
**SOLD** $230 USD (£170 GBP) each or $420 USD (£315 GBP) for the pair with M&F sandalwood soap (unused) included with the pair.
Price includes US/UK tracked & insured shipping.

Finally, a rare brush.  Custom made in the UK, a "Rubberset" 400 replica milled from a solid block of marine aluminum with four threaded collars (and two O-rings).  
Three of the collars are fitted with knots, one is empty but milled to accept 24-26mm knot of your choice.  It's like having four brushes in one!
The knots are set with high-strength epoxy but because the collars are removable the knots could be removed intact and reused elsewhere if desired.
-26mm TGN "Finest" 2-band (Retail $29 USD)
-24mm Silvertip 3-band (Retail $30 USD)
-26mm Übersoft synthetic (Retail $18 USD)
$230 USD (£170 GBP) for the entire set.  No retail price on the handle since it's a custom job.
Price includes US/UK tracked & insured shipping.

Well that was quick.  The M&F set of both brushes are sold-pending-funds (SPF).

I really wanted the fan but I just hesitated too long. All good I'll get my M&F fan one day. My gut just wouldn't let me pull the trigger. Can't explain why.

The "Rubberset" is and interesting concept.  Four brushes in one.  Have you had any issues with the knots loosening as you swap them out for the others?

I would have pulled the trigger had I just seen the offering in time. Oh, well  Sad. This would be a perfect way to answer the question "Do I like fans/bulbs more?"

I've never had a knot loosen. They are just as firmly stuck in their collars as the day I glued them.  
I imagine if you soaked the collar in boiled water, the thermal expansion of the metal may release the epoxy but I've never tried it.  Alternatively, the knot could be pressed out from the underside if you used enough force.

Been a while since I had seen one of those M&F soaps, I almost forgot about them! Good smelling soap.

Same here Nick I was tempted to place a WTB for one. Was a nice gesture to receive these with the brushes a few years back.
