Today marks the 10th Anniversary of the Shave Nook forum. To commemorate this milestone, we have commissioned Bob Quinn to make a limited edition shaving brush for the forum. Details will drizzle out over the next couple of weeks but this much is known.
  • The brushes will be sold via a pre-sale. The window to order will be open for two weeks. 
  • The knots will be two band Manchurian Badger in either bulb or fan (provided availability). Be sure to order early if you have a strong preference of one shape over the other.
  • The preliminary specs for the knot are 26mm diameter with a loft in the 52mm range for Fan. The loft for Bulb knots is still to be determined. 
  • These will be extremely limited edition brushes. No more than 50 will be made
  • The brushes will be ready to ship approximately 8 weeks after the close of the pre-sale
Stay tuned for more details and the announcement of the pre-sale. Below is a mocked up prototype of the brush to wet your whistle.

ThIs is going to be a great LE brush.  Bob has been an active TSN Artisan since 2012, and his handles and knots are top tier.  He definitely deserves being commissioned for this project.

I like how the colors of the brush look remarkably like the TSN colors. It’s really sharp looking! Well done Bob Biggrin

Yes, definitely well done, Bob.  These will each be individually turned and polished by Bob, so the final brushes will be outstanding.
