Today I am looking to thin out some of my forever brushes.  They have been sitting in their boxes unused for years now and it is time for them to find a better home.

The Paladins are from the initial offering and each is 1 of 6 in their pattern.

All prices include shipping + insurance for the CONUS via the USPS.  Shipping outside of the country will be considered if the buyer pays the increased cost.

Paladin PK47 - Butterscotch Marble - $180  Pending

Loft: 50.3 mm
Width: 27.1 mm

First up is the earliest example I have and it is from the second batch of Paladin brushes, a Butterscotch PK47 with Blonde Badger from Lee Sabini.  This hair is something else entirely.  Supportive yet very soft.  It does a fantastic job with generating luxurious lather.  It has a slight glue bump which contributes to the lovely, controlled feel.

Paladin PK47 - Purple Haze - $170 Pending

Loft: 50.72 mm
Width: 27.1 mm

Next up is a brush from the first batch of Paladin KC/London brushes.  The famous Blonde Badger is in its best form here.  This one does not have a noticeable glue bump, so the hair is a little softer overall with more splay.  I prefer a very soft brush and this hits that mark quite well.

Rooney 2xl Heritage - Jade - $300

Finally today brings the highly praised Heritage "gel tip" 2xl originally sold by Vintage Blades.  I bought this for $350 a few years ago and I believe I have only used it twice and is not even broken in yet.  This brush absolutely deserves to give somebody the shave of their dreams, which means that it is time to let it go.  I can't find any negatives in the the handle, the pattern, the hair, or the lather generation and release.  This is a grail brush through and through!
