These are absolutely perfect Beehives. The sommerset looks exactly like an Old School Rooney. Extremely happy with these! Happy Shaving Folks!

In terms of handle material selection for a beehive, Paladin is first. Personal preferences for Beehive shapes they are first now too. I was going to say second, but Varlet's Beehive is different from how it used to be in the past at the beginning. That's my absolute favorite Beehive handle.

I like that yellowish cream color that's in the Harlequin. I was browsing brushes a few days ago while listening to music comparing some headphones when something struck me on one of the Harlequins. Had to go back and look at the pictures of all the Harlequins, and the one that made me stop in my tracks, and couldn't buy that Buck Rogers Harlequin fast enough. Not sure if I have that blue in there, but I hope so. That looks great too.

From what I remember, your Somerset looks exactly like the Rooney stock of old because it is in fact. I seem to recall that Ken mentioned he worked out a deal with the company that made it. Possibly has exclusivity on it too, but don't quote me on that part. I only clearly remember that Ken worked out something to get that rod stock again.

Thanks for your thoughts. I am on a beehive kick. I do want a carbon and white beehive from Varlet and he is going to a general sales and release model so hopefully I can pick them up in the near future. I also want a Paladin Beehive in Honey Noir pictured below. I am pretty sure Ken is going to release some to the public along with an extended beehive handle.

I can understand that. I've gone through quite a few of those myself. The Beehive is certainly a beautiful and wonderful brush to get a bunch of. I like that Honey Noir also, and a Varlet in carbon and white sounds great. Right now for me it's seeing new handle shapes and handle material that excites me the most, and reading others impressions.

Those are beautiful. Great score.

That Honey Noir one would go quite nicely with a Charcoal Goods Stinger!!

Sean @ Maol Grooming I am with you Sean. I want the Honey Noir Beehive very badly. I believe Ken is going to release some in the near future along with an extended Beehive that is similar to the Sherlock. Happy Shaves!
