Suggestions for a collective noun for shaving brushes? (Is it shave or shaving brushes, btw?)

Tom has come up with 'brood' which I think is very amusing.

'Tuft'?

'Sett' - for badger brushes only Smile

'Sty' - for boar?

Jealousy of someone else's collection I refer to as 'denvy'...

My suggestions are not terribly amusing; I am sure some of the wags here could come up with something more inventive and funny.

Personally I like "sett" of badgers and "sounder" of boars as they are actually their respective collective nouns.

           

   
A different Sett!
