I have the H8 which I assume is the same thing but with a Horn handle. Also, recently I bought the BK12 and absolutely love it although it is a big boy. They are pure luxury. Does anyone know why they are marked PURE instead of Silvertips?

The Douglas is a LE which was $170 New and a superb brush for both soaps, creams, or face lathering with a stick. Phil and friends (Douglas ) worked very hard to make sure this brush worked.
