The 2XL Single-Ring shaving brush is a recent re-design of Lee Sabini's classic Rooney single-ring 2XL "Stubby."  Offered here in rich Orange Marble acrylic resin, this 2XL Single-Ring brush is filled with our luxurious 2-band 1909 Estate Series badger hair.  (Please see our Knot Properties page for a comprehensive description.)

At ~46mm tall, the re-designed single-ring 2XL is approximately 2mm shorter than the current 2-ring 2XL while retaining the same basic diameters as the 2-ring version.

The single-ring XL re-design came about after a long-time patron asked us to bring back the Rooney-pattern 3XXL shaving brush in a shortened form.  With encouragement from Lee Sabini, designer of the original XL and XXL patterns, 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 the 2XL offered here along with 2XXL and 3XL versions offered elsewhere on this website. 

Although intended as a face lathering brush, we find the 2XL Single-Ring equally at home in a bowl or scuttle.  And, as with all shaving brushes offered on this website, this 2XL Single-Ring 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.
