I've got a Rooney 1/1 in "Pure Badger". I found some info on a thread somewhere on here that it was the same quality as the "Best Badger" only that it hadn't been as carefully sorted by color. I love it. I don't find it scratchy at all. However, I use it with soaps. I haven't used many creams at all. It is a great brush.
Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives, and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.
