Brush is sold. Thanks all/Shave Nook.

Shavemac Silvertip in Buffalo horn, 21mm/51mm, 47mm tall handle.
I had originally listed this as a 22mm/52mm knot but I remeasured it today in better light and found I was off by a millimeter. Either way, it's a particualy nice knot; at once luxuriously soft but with enough body to give it real fullness and good backbone for a 3-band that is not overstuffed. Weighty and ergonomic handle. It's a true lather machine along the lines of my Thater 2-band and it hasn't shed one hair. I'm selling it only because I've decided to splurge and treat myself to the larger 24mm version as my last purchase before beginning my 2013 shaving purchase sabbatical.

As a holiday bonus until Dec 31st, I'll ship the brush with one of the following bonus options:

1. A new stick each of Arko and La Toja shaving soaps.

2. A new puck of Calani Iberishe Sonne Orange & Zypresse shaving soap.

This brush sells for about $175 new, including shipping from Shavemac.

$145 U.S. shipped CONUS, $150 for airmail with insurance, elsewhere at $138 + shipping cost. SOLD

Peter, great pictures and this is really a treasured Shavemac silvertip; they do a great job with their silvertips and I have two similar ones in ebony and bone. Great price for an heirloom that just looks good in the den plus being a great performer with lather. Doug

Thanks Doug. I prefer understated colors in horn and this was one of the few that were. I've owned one other horn brush from a reputable manufacturer and the Shavemac horn quality is much better. A really high quality brush.
