Both items sold! Thanks I recently purchased 2 new simpsons brushes and need to get rid of some other stuff to fund projects.
1st up is an Ever-Ready 500t. I absolutely LOVE this handle, but I have some other handles to restore and need money for knots. This beautiful lucite handle is fitted with a TGN black badger knot. The knot is 22mm diameter and set to 52mm loft by my measure with the usual marine epoxy. Writing on the bottom of the handle is still very clear, but the white paint has vanished from about 1/3 to 1/2 of the lettering. The brush has been used about a dozen times. Shed maybe 7-8 hairs in the first few shaves, but none since then. I chose a black badger knot because I really liked to look better than the same handle with a TGN finest knot. Due to it being black badger, this brush definitely has scritch to it. It will tear up some hard soaps and do some gentle exfoliating on the face with no problem.
2nd is a Mama Bears aromatic pipe tobacco shave soap. I got this for christmas from my sister and, while I like the scent overall, I feel that I am far too young as a 28 yr old graduate student to smell like pipe tobacco all the time. I used the soap twice. The container is lacking its sticker at this point, sorry. It just wasnt stuck on very well when I got it so I pulled it off.
Things I would consider for trade: For the brush, I am looking for a chubby/duke 2 in best or a rooney 3/1. I would also consider a shavemac but dont know much about them. I realize this might not be an equal value trade, but if you have one of these brushes you want to get rid of, then I am sure we could work something out with supplemental cash or soaps or something. I am willing to work with you. For the soap, I would consider a trade for any other very lightly used Mama Bear's soap.
For sale: I would like to get $40 $36 including shipping for the brush to cover costs. I will take $12 including shipping for the soap if no trade comes up.
