Really? How did that happen? And how did they come about having just one? Do they re-sell old brushes or something? I’m thoroughly confused. If my memory serves, the last retailer I remember having them was when Classic Shaving “found” a bunch of them in a back room in 2012 (the famous “Pooney” sale). They were discontinued even way back when.

They carry the newer Rooney super with the three rings on the handle and some three band rooneys. The amazing Rooney hair is long gone as far being sold by retailers. These ones are not nearly the same quality. I have tried one of the rooney super with the three rings on the handle and my Rooney 2xl super with the two rings is a much softer and denser knot. Not saying these are bad they are just not the same . I have yet to try a Rooney finest but they are amazing from what I've been told.

Yeah that’s what I thought. These were the ones available at places like Men Essentials, Handle Bar, Fendrihan and even on eBay until recently. From what I remember they were taking the “non-heritage” Rooney knots and putting them into the heritage handles, presumably to use up the stock of both. Even those heritage 2-band brushes were something special and I miss my Emilion 1 dearly.

I have had the luck of owning a few Rooney Finests and they are very unique brushes, unlike anything readily available today. Personally it wasn’t for me but shynt I hope you find one and if I happen to come across one I’ll PM you.
