We have commissioned Semogue to make a pair of limited edition shaving brushes to commemorate the 9th Anniversary of the Shave Nook. These brushes come with your choice of hair -Select Premium Boar or Silvertip Badger. You may very well choose to pick up one of each. 

The brushes sport a high gloss heavy resin handle that is both ergonomically comfortable and visually pleasing. Each brush will have its own unique serial number. Only 200 brushes in total were made (100 badger and 100 boar). Of these 200 brushes, we received 100 of them while Vintage Scents received the other 100.

The brushes are set to be delivered to me later today via FEDEX but, they are available for purchase now. The below pictures are of the prototypes.

I didn’t give this much thought earlier this year for some odd reason but the last month my interest grew in the silvertip. I think it will be a nice brush. Looking forward to shaving with it. I will update in the threads once I get mine. Cheers everyone!  Badger

Here are a few quick iphone pictures of the badger LE brush in natural light. This one is coming home with me. Grab one (or one of both) before it is too late.

They went out today. The brushes were delayed by FedEx and I did not get them until late in the day yesterday.

I’m real lucky to live in LA county so anytime I order from Phil, it gets here really quickly. Received mine this afternoon and got a good handful or lathers to clean out the knot. The brush is beautiful and the knot is nice, more backbone than I was expecting. In my brushes knot, it has a bit of a glue bump, maybe around 5mm. I’m assuming that after another good set of lathers/uses, it should loosen up a bit more and have a good mix of backbone and controlled splay. I do have to say though, not a single hair has fallen out of the knot today. I am impressed so far by the quality of it. Here are some quick pictures of #90:

Thanks for stocking these limited editions, Phil. Sweet brush release!  Badger
