3XXL Single-Ring, Select Series, Sand Ebonite

3XXL Single-Ring, Select Series, Sand Ebonite

$ 297.00

The 3XXL Single-Ring shaving brush is a recent re-design of the classic Rooney single-ring 2XL "Stubby."  Offered here with a Sand Ebonite handle filled with our 2-band 1907 Select Series badger hair offering firm backbone yet with soft tips.  (Please see our Knot Properties page for a comprehensive description.)

At ~49mm tall, the re-designed single-ring 3XXL is approximately 3mm shorter and 2-3mm wider than the current 2-ring 3XL.

The single-ring 3XXL re-design came about after a long-time patron asked us to bring back the Rooney-pattern 3XXL shaving brush but in a shortened form.  With encouragement from Lee Sabini, designer of the original XXL pattern, we developed a prototype that greatly exceeded our expectations--so much so that that prototype has become part of our regular brush rotation.  From this prototype we expanded the single-ring concept to include 2XXL along with 2XL and 3XL versions. 

Although intended as a face lathering brush, we find the single-ring 3XXL equally at home in a bowl or scuttle.  And, as with all shaving brushes offered on this website, this single-ring 3XXL 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.

~~~Please note:  Lee Sabini is the designer and owner of the XL-series brush handle designs.  Brad Sears ShaveWorks is the only brush maker currently authorized by Lee Sabini to make this series of shaving brush handles.
