Manchurian White badger by Elite Razor

Post by brothers » Sat Nov 03, 2018 12:28 pm

In the past few days I've been working on a new brush project. I wanted a new badger brush with qualities similar to the best of the long-discontinued Rooney Finest. I did my research and someone suggested I consider the Manchurian White brush sold exclusively by Bob Quinn at Elite Razor in Georgia USA. After conversing with Mr. Quinn, I opted for the 26mm knot for my project. I do not hesitate to recommend this brush. It's beautiful and performs up to my expectations and perceptions. If anyone wants a spectacular badger brush, with or without the handle, this one might be what you're looking for. I already had an extra handle for this one, but please keep in mind that Bob makes his own handles which allows the customer to pick the material and the design of the handle, in addition to the material, size and shape of the knot. Here's a photo:

This brush has backbone. But it has no scritch. It doesn't irritate the skin no matter how long I use it on my face as I build lather from the soap stick, and it's soft.

Bob's Manchurians are truly wonderful, for me better than Simpsons or Paladins. I had and treasured a couple of them, but I sold them after getting a windfall of Rooney Finests and ending up with just too many brushes.

Bill_K, even though I'm enjoying the new Manchurian badger in addition to the most recent synthetics, I have gone through my brushes and removed quite a few from my favorites that I'm keeping. Here is a list of 32 brushes that did not survive, and may eventually find their way onto the BST thread in case I ever want to sell them.

14 x boar
9 x badger
7 x synthetic
2 x horse
