***** Current on EBAY by seller 'bslitzan' # 1125808957. My crippled computer wont let me upload a photo. Its a handcarved badger handle and I think it's bone. The seller doesn't know. It's as wild as a badger in a earthworm farm but not for $199 BIN or opening bid of $149!

Looks like scrimshaw out of a hammock that was overdone.

Sad

Or a cow's leg more likely. So rough on the cut end like it was chopped off with a band saw or hack saw...

Kind of yuck.

Reminds me of when we would go deer hunting and butcher them in the garage after they hung for a few days. Not in a good way either.

I was quessing hamburger; having butchered a steer in my ag science beef production class. It would make for a novel brush,executed a little more genteely.

Cool brush but not worth the coin to me.

The badger looks to be nicely carved, but the finish on the end of the knot hole and the knot itself look crude.  In the hands of a craftsman this idea could be turned into a desirable brush.

I saw it and thought it was interesting, but too rich for my pocket. I'll stick to an inexpensive Omega. Does the job and if it gets lost, stolen or broke; I won't cry about replacing it.

It kind of gives me the creeps. I prefer my bone brushes to be finished a bit more. This one, while carved nicely, still reminds me too much of an animal joint.

Deer antler is nice, or any horn material, but that one just doesn't do it for me.

A scottish shaving store offers very attractive brushes with antlers recovered from the shedding.  I lost their address Huh

Hmm.. not sure I like the look of that brush. It's intricate, but not my cup of tea. I prefer simpler handles.
