Good Evening Nook!

I've got this beautiful Rooney Heritage Beehive (size one) that I'd like to trade.

Vitals (from website, no calipers here...):
Overall brush height: 92mm
Handle height: 46mm
Brush Loft: 46mm
Knot diameter: 21mm
Retail Price - $174.99 {available new here...}
What did I pay used? - $120+shipping IIRC
Scrape in handle - see pic#2 below, bottom right of handle/base
More pics available upon request - these are just the pics I had on hand from testing my new lightbox Wink

Why would I get rid of this thing... am I mental?

The wife wants the badgers to go, which reminds me of a funny but true joke...
Q: How can you tell if somebody's a vegetarian?
A: They'll remind you every chance they get... (sorry for making this one a little true here...)

What would I like to trade for?:
I realize almost all of these would involve some type of cash changing hands either way - in that event PayPal is the method of choice....
Vintage or Unique Semogues
Tradere SB (+cash on my part, clearly)

if those don't come around...
Mergress
Futur
Just about anything else you'd like to offer, excluding other badger-only brushes...

And now - some shameless brush eye candy Biggrin

24 Perhaps if I can't find any trades and this ends up becoming a sale I should offer a $10 discount if the buyer will commit to one week of a vegetarian diet 24

Is that much broccoli and rice worth it? Wink

Stop eating meat during lunch? Deal! Although my wallet is telling me that's a bad idea.

Good luck! I'd have to move some badgers myself before I could even think of this.

Thanks to all for the kind comments and for the interest in this fine brush!

Working on a few potential trade offers here... waiting to hear back from the members.

Also - I'm contemplating putting this brush up for regular "sale" this evening, depending on those responses.

I'll let you know!

Brian, if the Futur wasn't my favorite (haven't used anything else in a month), I'd be all over this. Hope your offers are great!

Hey Nook - Me again! 24

I've had a few questions about the handle blemish. Let me just explain the pics above... I took them immediately after fashioning my first ever light box to test it out ~~~ I hadn't really been considering using the pics for anything but my own testing & enjoyment, so I certainly didn't focus on the handle flaw.

Here are two pics that focus on it quite well. It actually doesn't look this egregious in person, I manipulated the light sources to help it stick out as much as possible. Here you go!

The spot is very smooth, in fact I honestly don't even realize it's there when I use the brush, although I'm strage in that I always keep the brush's brand name facing me. Go figure Wink
