Contacting Rooney?

Post by maskaggs »

My beloved Rooney has become a shedder -- 5-6 per shave, and getting really annoying on the face and jammed in the razor. I can't figure out how to contact them, though. I gather they are now City of London Brushworks, but that website takes me to some South African shave retail site.

Any advice on how I can go about a repair / replacement process?
Regards,
Mike

You can reach Lee Sabini at leesabini@me.com. He may or may not respond (most likely not).

The centre of the knot of my Rooney 2/1 Finest has started to hollow out. Mr Sabini offered to replace the knot with his current Finest badger at my cost. As it’s still functional, I’ve decided to continue to use the brush as is.

This sounds a lot like "Go buy a new brush" :D
