I am going to float this as a possible item for trade.  I am not interested in selling.   I don't have a specific item in mind but I thought I'd see what offers I get.  


My item up for potential trade is a Morris & Forndran Blonde Badger from the pre collaboration period,  circa 2011.  It was 100% made by Lee Sabini and the handle was turned in-house at M&F.  The knot is fantastic and provides a decadent experience.   It measures 33mm+ (measurement without a caliper) but is actually very controllable in use.  This brush has really caused me to rethink how large a usable brush could be. I certainly thought that this would be on the upper end but now I don't think so. I could enjoy even bigger. The resin handle is a very unusual green onyx. It actually resembles the stone quite well. This brush is very rare. I believe there were only three made ever.  Of course, the knot has never shed, the handle is in perfect condition, and the lettering is pristine.

Please don't be disappointed if I decline an offer as I love this brush. What would make me part with it?  I would consider other M&F brushes from the pre collaboration period, particularly XL and Stubby's--the bigger the better. I also would consider modern razors, particularly Wolfman rare metals and perhaps Paradigm DE.  I might also consider other top quality brushes. Let me know what you have.

These are some photos taken of one of the "brothers" to this brush.   The post is from 2012.  Great pictures...

I also wanted to mention that I am looking for a UFO Titan Titanium L handle.   That is the 90mm long version.   I would be very interested in a trade involving one.
