2XL Morris & Forndran, Finest Badger, Nachtgras Ebonite
The iconic 2XL shaving brush by Morris & Forndran is considered by many to be one of the finest shaving brushes ever made. Originally called the 2XL Stubby, the 2XL is one of brushes Lee Sabini designed, along with the L7 and others, after he bought the Rooney company.
This 2XL shaving brush is offered with a hand-crafted Nachtgras Ebonite Ivory handle filled with Lee's hand-tied Finest Badger. (Please see our Knot Properties page for a comprehensive description of this classic hair.)
Although intended as a face lathering brush, Lee tells us he likes to use his 2XL's in shaving bowls as well. As with all shaving brushes offered on this website, this 2XL brush was lathe-turned and hand-finished by master wood turner and brush maker Brad Sears on a 700-lb manually-controlled wood lathe (a Powermatic 3520B) in our Maryland Eastern Shore workshop before being shipped to Lee in the U.K. where he imprinted and filled it with the 2-band Finest hair seen here.
~~~Please note: Lee Sabini is the designer and owner of the 2XL brush handle design. Brad Sears ShaveWorks is the only brush maker currently authorized by Lee Sabini to make 2XL shaving brush handles.
