At long last, we're introducing Paladin Ebonite-handled shaving brushes in our online shop. See: https://www.paladinshaving.com/pages/pal...ng-ebonite. The first release is set for today (Saturday, January 12) at 2:00 PM Central. At that time the Paladin Ebonite Brush Collection page (accessible through the Shop Ebonite button) will be populated with photos of the brushes included in today's offering. We've been saving up for a while; future releases will be much smaller.

I can’t afford Paladin brushes. But if I could, Ebonite is the way to go. Those handles are gorgeous and the page isn’t even populated yet.

Ken, this is a stunning release of brushes.  Pricey, but actually quite reasonable due to the higher cost of the rod stock, the difficulty of working with the material, and the superb quality of Paladin handles.  Congratulations on this achievement.

What we call Aurora (since this morning) was produced as a custom order for us early last year. Custom orders involve a significant minimum quantity purchase and a premium price. 

What sucks a little is that the manufacturer's standard practice is to take advantage of the opportunity presented by custom orders to produce additional material, which is then made available to other buyers at standard pricing with no minimum quantity. There's more to the story, but it's not fit to tell here.

really beautiful work gentlemen.  I still treasure my first ebonite from you through a great nooker. it is eyewatering what I did to get it.  I have loved the idea of it since I grew up in the 60s when bowling balls were a big deal.  it seems like a full circle and I am happy that so many people get the chance to have these.  again great work

Very nice! Of course, I only realized when they were long gone! There will be another time!

OUCH! It does look similar to something I've seen from someone else.

Check out this site: https://www.ebonite-arts.de. Watch the banner scroll through a few images until you see something that looks familiar. Then scroll down the page a little and watch the video, paying particular attention starting at about 1:00.

Thanks. We know they're pricey.

that was not meant as a criticism.  I'd say from the looks of those handles they are worth it.

I did not take what you wrote as criticism at all. My reply was just empathetic acknowledgment of a fact. I appreciated your post, both the compliment and the lament.
