2XL, 26mm Morris & Forndran Finest Badger, Black Marble Ebonite
The iconic 2XL shaving brush by Morris & Forndran is considered by many to be one of the finest shaving brushes ever made. This 2XL brush is offered in the slightly smaller 26mm size with a hand-crafted Black Marble Ebonite handle filled with Lee Sabini's Finest Badger. (Please see our Knot Properties page for a comprehensive description of this classic hair. And our About Ebonite page to learn more about our Ebonite handled shaving brushes.)
The 2XL handle pattern is a direct copy of the Rooney 2XL "Stubby" that Lee designed while holding an ownership position with that company. .
Although intended as a face lathering brush, Lee tells us he likes to use his 2XL's in shaving bowl 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.
