Letting a couple more brushes go today.  First up is a lovely faux ebony Truefitt & Hill Silvertip Style 1 Size 3 made by Rooney.  The Truefitt brushes used the infamous Rooney Super Silvertip hair but reportedly had them made 15% denser and I believe it.  Expect moderate backbone with very soft tips from this beautiful brush.  The Kent KS1 is a vintage brush from the middle of last century and has earned the nickname "Keyhive" thanks to its very ergonomic and aesthetically pleasing handle shape.  This brush has definitely seen some use and I have restored it with a Frank Shaving Silvertip which is a pretty dense knot with very, very soft tips.  Prices include USPS shipping to a US address and PayPal fees.  PM me to purchase or feel free to ask any questions right here.  Purchase either brush and you have your choice of a lightly used, but fully broken in, Proraso (Omega) shaving brush or an unused Proraso sensitive formula shaving soap.  First come, first served.

On the left is the T&H Rooney Brush with a 26 x 51mm knot.  The brush is in excellent condition with only some minor wear to the printing showing it's age.  These brushes retailed for $150, take this one for $125.  SOLD!

On the right is the Kent KS1.  You will notice some small cracks around the top of the handle, these have been stabilized from the inside with epoxy and have not worsened in the last few years the brush has been in my collection.  The knot measures 24 X 48mm and has shed an occasional hair, but nothing that I have ever worried about.  I have about $80 into this brush, yours for $55.
