Gentlemen,

Taste in shaving brushes, razors and products is personal. These two brushes, although famous, do not work for me. Each has been used about a handful of times. I have priced the brushes to go, with free U.S. shipping. Paypal is fine; no trades, please.

This is the Thater 4125/2 two-band with a 26mm knot and about a 55mm loft. The brush has an exceptionally dense knot with firm backbone. The tips are soft, although not the softest I have experienced on Thater brushes. The brush works well with both soaps or creams. New, this brush is priced around $155. I purchased it on sale for $140. Your price is $100.

The Simpson Chubby 2 is legendary. This one is in super badger, mating a 27mm knot with a 50mm loft. I've had other Chubbie 2s, but I remember them having a denser knot with a heavier backbone. Or it could just be my perception. This one has those attributes, but it seems to splay nicely, too. All those fine qualities aside, the brush is just too big for me. The Chubby 2 in super badger is priced around $225. Your price is $150.

Love the handles on both of these and they will go fast I'm sure, just not in the market right now for me.

Obie, you’re practically giving these away! A person looking for one of these classics is going to get a great deal.

Thanks for the heads up, gentlemen. I've kept these at a good price so that others can enjoy them without breaking the bank.

The 41 series is considered the best thaters for backbone and  face feel balance.

If I had not given all my money to the wife's knee surgeon, I would own that Chubby 2.

Yes, the Chubby is a great brush. Actually, now I'm having second thoughts about letting it go and will probably withdraw it. The Thater, too.

I’ve got a Thater that is too soft for me, but I’ve been hesitant to let go of. Any interest in trading for the 2 band?

Thank you for the offer, but no trades. In fact, suddenly I am hesitant to let go of the brushes.
