    Default Rooney Heritage 2XL and 1XL back in stock at VB...

    I think these just got in... Anyway, thought I'd post it here on brush forum so the brush junkies wouldn't miss it.

    I'd added Vintage Blades' Heritage Stubby page to my "Check Daily" bookmark folder for exactly this purpose... Managed to finally score myself a 1XL! Can't wait for it to arrive...

    I wouldn't think twice about ordering any Stubby XL. I love my 2XL. I think the hair is unique to the 2 band brushes I have - finer and with softer tips. The density that the XLs are packed is perfect for this hair.

    Marvelous, marvelous brushes. If you're on the fence, swallow your willpower pride and pull the trigger.

    Thats what I thought... I think the sales strategy is the same as those "Last of the Finests" from Classic Shaving a while back. List 10 and people will snap them up not thinking there are 10 more coming.

    Maybe, but now those Finests really are gone. Sorry I didn't jump on a couple of them.

    I couldn't describe it any better...wonderful brushes, all three. I'm blessed to have the trio and they each get a lot of attention. Go get 'em, Gents!

    I got one, and its awesome, but I dont need more than one. The skiritchy tips on my Finest are breaking in very very nicely and have lost most of their skiritch, but I still am satisfied with just the one. Really even just trying to cut down to just one of every "type" of brush still leaves me with a 2 week rotation

    That's where I will wind up I have a feeling....

    It's funny though. I really LIKE the itty bitty scritching of my Finests. I don't really want the tips to soften up any more than they are. Just me, I guess

    But, as with all brushes, individual examples vary significantly. My 30mm and 3/3 have such tall lofts, they barely scritch at all. Nothing at all like the Polo. That is the one I wish I'd "hit"

    The 3/1 is close but it's way smaller.

    Cheers, Brother!

    I dont mind the skritch in a Finest, I look at it as an opportunity cost to have that much density and backbone in a brush. To be honest it really just adds a touch of character to the brush. It's almost like having a puppy that just wants to run fast and play hard all day.

    Very interesting description, Seth. I like it (and I like puppies)

    Well the stock of Heritage Stubby 2XLs has been depleted by one.

    Thanks to the bunch of DIRTY ROTTEN SBAD ENABLERS in this forum.
