DFS 2018 LE Brush is now live. Read more here!!

#1
This is my last badger as I slim down to only boar (except for my Wee Scot).

A terrific brush whose handle is so comfortable that I pestered the maker, Charles, to make another for me with a larger knot (he wouldn't) because the handle is so ergonomic.

This is a described by the maker as a 20mm knot but it measures as a 22mm knot. I had a custom Shavemac brush made to match this brush with a fan shaped bulb so that I could have two of these, and had a 22mm knot put in it. The two brushes measured the same, so I think it really is a 22mm knot. I sold the Shavemac in favor of this one.

I used this in a large rotation of brushes, but didn't have it long and didn't use it many times. Nevertheless it was my prize for a while, and I liked it even more than my 3824, and more also than my 22mm Shavemac. This is the last one to go. I was going to keep it, but I need to fund some pocket knife purchases that have taken hold of me, and I have lots of brushes already.

It is in Nearly New/Mint condition. It has backbone and is perfectly soft, no scritch at all. This is the only badger brush I have owned that NEVER lost a hair, so it is definitely not a shedder.

Offered in two ways:

On its own, shipped CONUS $88

Or, with a brand new, unopened NIB puck of Valobra Patchouly ($30 at bullgoose): $108

I purchased a boatload of Valobra, so I now have fifteen pucks or so and it feels like too much of a good thing. Great soap; great scent.

Having used a SR3120 I can vouch for the quality of the knot. The SR3520 is currently available for $99 shipped. The question is whether it is worth the extra $11 to get a new one?

I thought my comment was appropriate and never intended to harm your sale. Feel free to send me a pm if you want to discuss this further. I will always comment on for sale threads where I can add personal insight.

It is appropriate considering Charles at QED offers zero warranty for brushes unless purchased directly by the end user. I know first hand as I got screwed by it. Even though my brush was first used by me, I purchased it on a forum.
