Rooney Heritage Large Stubby. $125 Shipped USA. Brush has been in gentle rotation for a few months. Dense 26 mm knot. Very soft tips. Great backbone. Kills soaps and creams both.
From VB: "The badger hair used for all Heritage brushes is a special grade of Rooney's popular Super Silvertip or "Super". Many feel that the quality of this hair is much closer to that of the Rooney Finest than it is to the “standard” Rooney Super. One thing that all agree on, however, these brushes are the most densely filled brushes on the market."
