The 151 combines two of the 150-series shaving brush designs made 100 years ago by the Rubberset Company of Newark, New Jersey.
As some might know, Rubberset offered a variety of brushes with the 150 designation. At least one modern source suggests that Rubberset assigned model numbers based on suggested retail price ($1.50?). But regardless of how the names came about, we designed the 151 using the rounded ferrule from one brush mated to the gentle concave handle from another. The result is an extremely ergonomic handle we use for both face and bowl lathering.
The 151 is hand-crafted in two sizes 28mm and 30mm. (Descriptions of our Badger hairs may be found on this page.)
- 28mm brushes may be filled with our BSSW 2-band Select Badger or 3-band Super Badger hair.
- 30mm brushes are filled with our 1907A2B 2-band Select Badger.
Handle colors for your 151 may be selected from any of the resins found in our current Resin Inventory.
As with all BSSW shaving brushes, the 151 comes gift boxed with complete usage & care instructions, a signed Certificate of Authenticity, and one-year warranty.
