Nice, Lance!  Isn't the tortoise great!  That and the near perfect Thater knot add up to another awesome brush.  Enjoy!

I just purchased a NOS Filarmonica 13 in Pearl Scales from a seller in Spain. I don't have pictures of the actual razor, but this photograph is the best representation I could find.

I know we are not supposed to curse on here and this might get deleted, but HOLY SHIT!!!!!!!! And if you just can't stand a level 2 or 3, I know a great "charity" you could donate them to.

I've never tried the 7oc greens. I think the blacks are one of the best kept secrets in shaving.

There's nothing like a Fily. I have a couple of 14's that I enjoy, but I have been wanting a 13 as it's my preferred size. Congratulations. You really have quite a collection.

Thank you Richard, I think the pearlized scales look very sharp on this 13. It's funny, this is my first #13 as I prefer the #12 size. Wink

Thanks to Ravi I have been able to acquire a Vulfix Simpson Chubby 3 Super 2-Band:

And now the Chubby 3 quartet is complete, with two CH3 from the Somerset era and two CH3 from the Vulfix era, both in Super 2-Band and Manchurian hair:

That is an awesome sight David.  A very nice collection.  It's neat to see the Somerset and Vulfix era brushes side by side to see the differences.  

Enjoy!

Brad Sears M&F in new shape (Morris & Forndran Style 3) and new color (new Moon).  Ordered in Mid-May and pleasantly surprised in early July.  Guessing from early prototype/sample of rod color as Inventory Control Genius Nancy found enough of a rod to make the brush.  Excited is an under-statement.

That is a beautiful and unique brush, please let us know your impressions of the knot as it breaks in.
