Hi fellas,

Saw this on e-bay:

It is described as a Kent BS4. On the original version of the pic you can see BS4 where BK4 usally is. I cannot find any information anywhere about that model? Could it be an older version of the BK4? A mis-print? Looks like an older version of the Kent logo as well?

Any ideas? Just curious?!

I don't know enough about the older Kent's to take a guess, but I'm sure someone more experienced about these will be along soon. I just wanted to mention that its a great looking brush, and if the price isn't way out of whack, you should go for it. :w00t: :001_rolle

I was looking at this too.
I searched the website and other sites and couldn't find anything.
It must be a typo.
or a fake. Do they make fake brushes?

Kent make limited run brushes for various UK based department stores. You see them around the sotd's now and then. I'm guessing that's what we are looking at here.

OK curiosity was killing me so I contacted Kent! They were just as baffled...the only information the person I dealt with had was that they have not made BS (maybe this is why) models since 1994. So it is a production model just dated.

There is your bit of trivia for the morning.

I was interested - it looked like a good brush but I was puzzled too so I shot off an email. Kent came through with this but not until after the auction closed. I didn't bid.

'Please be advised that the BS4 shaving brush was last on our price list in
1991 at a retail price of 22.50. It was filled with grey pure badger and
was approximately the size of your BK4.'

Final price was probably about right I think.
