I have been working with Vie-Long on a brush that will be exclusive to BullGoose Shaving Supplies dubbed the BG2012LE. The brush will come with four knot choices: 1) Silvertip Badger (25mm diameter and 50mm loft) extra stuffed for added backbone. 2) Horse/Badger Mix (25mm diameter and 50mm loft) 3) Horse Hair -Badger Imitation (25mm diameter and 55mm loft) 4) Horse Hair -brown/unbleached (25mm diameter and 55mm loft) Pictured is the prototype for the brown horse hair brush. I have been using it for the past few weeks and find it has really good backbone and is a very versatile brush, handling both creams and hard soaps with ease. The handle for these brushes is a hand turned resin handle that is very substantial feeling and that can go toe to toe with any brush maker. The handle on the production run will have a little more curve to it but this will give you a general idea. I hope to have them in stock in 3 to 4 weeks.
