I ended up looking at the knots and, in particular, the free loft. That narrowed it down to the Falstaff and Sumo. Then it became a preference on style. I liked both, so finally color broke the tie.

Great choice!

Thanks Jorge.

What a shame they post only in the united states.

Indeed it is. We hate it. But US Fish & Wildlife regulations make it impractical to export badger-hair brushes, at least without running the risks of ignoring them.

Tom, I 100% agree. I have a strawberry amber Sumo, 'cool' is how I would describe it.

Ask a friend in the US to have it sent to her/him and resend to you. 
I think US Fish & Wildlife regulations mentioned above by Ken do not apply to individuals.

They actually apply to individuals the same as businesses. But the provisions that keep us from shipping to customers outside the US do not apply in the absence of a commercial transaction. I can send a brush outside the US as a gift. If someone from the UK visits a friend in the US and forgets to pack a brush he brought along or bought in the US, the friend can ship it to England, no problem. If I ship a brush bought by someone in the US to a friend of the buyer here, I have no problem. And if that friend forwards the brush to the UK, the friend is not engaged in commercial export, so has no problem. Silly distinctions from a policy perspective, but that's the way it works under current regulations.  Makers outside the US get by with shipping here not because the law doesn't apply in those instances, but because enforcement is generally impracticable. US makers who choose to abide by the law are at a huge disadvantage. It really sucks. Its a big problem for us.

Ken - question.  Can a shaving retailer say based in Redondo Beach, CA ship badger brushes to the UK?

I notice shaving retailers list products with alcohol (after shave) as prohibited, never brushes.

I don't think we describe the colors/patterns anywhere. We just let those speak for themselves, same as knot shapes. But if you have any questions about particular materials, post them here and I'll try to answer them.

Thanks for the reply. They are all beautiful. I remember certain paint colors on motorcycles being described as changing colors under different light. Something like that might be hard to capture in still photos. Regardless, I bought the Lapis Falstaff and I am stoked about it. I can't wait to see it and I can't wait to use it.
