Gather round all B&B'ers
Badger & Blade's 2012 Limited Edition Shaving Brush
Due to popular demand we have again asked our own B&B Vendor and brush artisan Rudy Vey to make this years B&B LE Brush. For your approval...... A custom Rudy Vey.... in Aged Faux Ivory. The photos below are the Artists Proof of the brush. Mr. Vey has graciously agreed to make 100 brushes this year instead of 75 as we did last year.
We will be offering them in two different knots this year. A TGN knot like last year, and Shavemac D01
We will do a maximum of 50 with a Shavemac knot. So.... have a look and get your order in early. Make sure you note in your post which knot you are ordering

A quote from Rudy Vey to give you all the specifications and details:
"This is a group buy for a limited number of B&B 2012 LE shaving brushes.
The buy is open to all members of Badger & Blade and is limited to a total of 100 brushes. The brushes are numbered: 1/100 through 100/100.The brushes are laser engraved on the bottom as shown in the pictures.The handles are made from custom cast resin in an aged faux ivory color,the resin blanks are cast in very small batches so minute color deviations are present.We have selected the best quality blanks for this project.Every handle is turned, sanded and polished one at a time by hand. Small deviations will add individuality to each handle made.The handle height is 54/55 mm, the handle Shape is a classic Key Hole Style. Both of the knots diameter are a nominal 22 mm (this means the diameter where the hair leaves the handle is about 23-24 mm.) Both Knots are two-band finest in fan shape with a loft of approx 48 mm.
The brushes will come in a plastic tube that is suitable as a travel tube.
Selecting a specific number in the run (XX/100) is not an option, the first 50 brushes,or however many are sold, will be the Shavemac DO1 knots.
