Welcome Badger and Blade Shavers to this Twelfth Edition of the Ultimate Brush Chronicles. It is my pleasure to be able to join with Ben to present what we hope will be a fun and informative Badger Brush Bonanza. The subject of our studies is the Morris & Forndran brush range- a name which I am sure many of you are familiar with, but which also remains something of an enigma.
Ben (ben74) doesn't need any introduction here in the Brush Forum. As a regular visitor and brush aficionado, he is as well-known and well-respected for his knowledge as he is for his wonderful collection and indeed also for his skills with the camera. Together we will be putting these brushes through their paces by testing them with different soaps and creams and inviting input from our readers by way of questions, photos, observations and thoughts. Feel free to get involved! The Brush Chronicles are only as good as the Members help us to make them.
Morris & Forndran
This photo is of my brush which has a 26mm knot, loft of 51mm, handle height of 49mm, Blonde Badger hair and is a fantastic face-lathering machine. I recall that the brush cost me about £85 and I do believe that it was money well-spent. It compares favourably with other premium brushes and now with the much-expanded range of M&F brushes available, they are starting to become more widely seen.
This morning's SOTD. My M&F brush with Czech & Speake's Oxford & Cambridge Soap- something to look forward to when I walk away from the computer and head to the bathroom!
I hope to return later and post some thoughts on my shave and get this Chronicle up and running. Welcome Ben- it is great to have you on board and I certainly hope that you can have some fun!
