I traded for a really nice M&F Faux Horn Blonde Badger (25mm knot, 52mm loft, 48mm handle), it arrived today and I just had a fantastic first shave with it!

Very nice firm backbone, soft tips and looks great. Lathered really well in my G5 scuttle. 2 pass shave had plenty to spare. I also really like the ergonomics of the handle. Definitely one of my favorite brushes.

Now I just need to find another M&F ... any suggestions? Smile

He may get it by Christmas if he starts the process now. Winky

Lee has a variety of handles and knots available to custom build a brush for you.

Think of most Rooney handles and he should have them in different styles and colors. Then pick a two ot three band knot and you're all set.

As Brian pointed out, communication and ordering/build time can take a while sometimes.

Looking good!

Is this a finest in blond cloak or a real blond knot?

I read that some Finest hair came in Blond title.

Just email Lee, he has no models as such, you order what you like, Lee makes it as close as possible to meet your order spec.

Simple as that.

Look at what handles Rooney and M&F brushes can be made in, Lee can deliver all of them.

Then find your preferred brush hair type, decde knot width, loft and knot shape - and PayPal Lee.

2-5 weeks later you have your brush depending on whether he as one already made that serves your specs or as to make it from scratch.

I've given up with that man. I've spoken with him once, after that I haven't heard back from him. I've emailed him about three more times since I spoke with him and no response.Huh So I'm done. I'm not going to chase someone around so I can buy a brush from them.

Thanks! Email sent. Looking at your list I need Morris & Forndran Stubby Finest 2-Band Smile

Sorry, but Lee can't make that particular brush as this brush has the genuine Rooney Finest 2-Band hair from 2010. Impossible to replicate. IMPOSSIBLE !

But you can still get great brush, just not that great a brush - I own 6 M&F brushes now.....more to come....

Nice brush indeed.The handle is the best one (IMHO) out there.I had a M&F with a real horn handle with the same measures than yours , and its another brush I truly regret it that I sold it...
