I'm assembling a kit for a friend of mine.  Unfortunatley he lives 1,700 miles away, so this will be a remote teaching experience!

I'll recommend he buy a Maggard MR11 razor.  I'll put together an asortment of blades and some soaps.  I'm looking for a brush to put in the kit.  I'm thinking of a 24mm badger with a handle shaped for face lathering.

If you have a suitable brush, at a modest price, please send me a PM.  I'll test it so that I can offer him some pointers.

Thanks for your help

Perhaps you can find one of the various inexpensive synthetics with  Plisson type knots.  If he's going to get a Maggard razor, someone may have the Maggard 26mm synthetic with the Granite handle available.  It's an excellent value at $13.95 new.  The handle is much nicer than what you get with other synthetics at this low price range.
